Just to put it out there: Christmas movies can be more sickly than your nan's sticky toffee pudding. Whether your little cousins are dragging you along to animated festive family fun, or your girlfriend is putting you through a relentless romantic Christmas comedy with an all-star cast, you'll often find yourself resorting to Netflix instead. Or The Muppets Christmas Carol, because it's a CLASSIC.

But we've come across something at FHM Towers that we firmly believe is going to break the mould.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, starring (and directed by) Ben Stiller, is out on Boxing Day and we think it is going to be perfect for you readers. The story itself is just the right amount of "feel-good" and the cinematography is going to blow your Christmas pudding.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty quad

Here's what it's all about...

In his secret life, Walter Mitty dreams big... really, really big. There’s no challenge beyond his grasp, be it climbing a massive glacier or rescuing a senior citizen from an exploding building.

When he’s not daydreaming, the not-so-secret life of Walter Mitty is the opposite of his heroic alter-ego’s; he’s just an everyday guy facing imminent career downsizing, who’s too timid to ask out his pretty co-worker (Kristen Wiig). But when Walter faces his ultimate real-world test, he springs into action on a global adventure exceeding anything he could have dreamed of.
