I'm not a big fan but you shouldn't have been pushed to apologize for a character you played 10 years ago. We all need to stand tall to PC!!!

Escape at Dannemora let me first tell you that I was a corrections officer for 25 years and I used to see things that I did not like your pro trade people and officers their way they should've been portrayed I've seen this happen in the past how officers and civilians could be manipulated I was never that person but you did a great job in this movie you should be commended what a great movie this was or series whatever you wanna call it Richard Matt committed those crimes right around the corner from my house and I live at now it was many years ago but he deserved what he got and you portray that perfectly I also cannot believe that Clinton correctional facility gave you access to show that jail how it was. JoBlo public has no clue as they say a fluke few bad apples spoil the bunch there's a lot a good officers out there

I'm a big fan of yours. Your mini series was unbelievably great. Although it was a drama, if I hadn't known you directed it, I would have thought you and something to do with it. Hope that makes sense. The humor and music was definitely "Ben Stiller"! I can't wait for your next project!!

My wife and I have watched Walter Mitty more than any other film of any genre. I am repeatedly shocked that not everyone knows about it. We it!

Thank you for making it!

Thank you for your film I am watching it right now during the covid-19 and for some reason watching with tears in my eyes and I do not know why maybe I was in the same position and is close to the same thing but again thank you it's lifts my heart and help me to keep going.
