Editorial Reviews

In this hilarious and idiosyncratic comedy, Carol (Lake Bell, No Strings Attached) is an underachieving voice coach living in the shadow of her egotistical father Sam (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man), the undisputed king of the voice-over industry. When Sam kicks her out, Carol lands her first voice-over job with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Demetri Martin, “Important things with Demetri Martin”). As romantic sparks begin to fly, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision when continued job offers put her in head to head competition with her dad. The engaging supporting cast includes Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins and Ken Marino with cameos by Eva Longoria and Geena Davis.

Customer Reviews

Very funny movie.
Adam
Not a bad movie, just rambled on and seemed to never get to the closure of the plot.
James E. Grubbs
It was a good story, had great acting, was funny, and very entertaining.

Format: DVD
"In a World..." (2013 release; 93 min.) brings the story of Carol (played by Lake Bell), a struggling voice coach trying to break into the fiercely competitive and men-dominated voice over industry for doing movie trailers. As the opening credits roll, we see archive footage featuring Don LaFontaine, the legendary voice over artist for countless movie trailers who coined the phrase "In a world". Carol is living with her dad Sam, himself a top talent in the voice over industry. But soon Carol is kicked out so that Sam's 30 yr. old girlfriend can move in (Sam tells Carol "I'm supporting you by not supporting you", ha!). Carol moves in with her sister Dani (played by Michaela Watkins). Then by happenstance, Carol is able to land a movie trailer project, much to the dismay of others ("she is the chick who snagged the gig!" screams one). To tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first and foremost, this is the "Lake Bell show" from start to finish. In addition to starring, she also wrote, directed and co-produced the movie. And shine she does indeed. oozing charm from start to finish. Even though she's been around quite a long time on TV and in movies, I really hadn't seen much of her, and this movie is for me Lake Bell's grand coming out party. Second, Bell surrounds herself with a lot of great talent, including the already mentioned Michaela Watkins but also Rob Corddry (as Dani's husband) and Geena Davis as the movie producer. Eva Longoria plays herself in a hilarious cameo at the beginning of the movie. Third, this movie is actually funny, as it actually made me laugh!

I heard a NPR interview with Lake Bell who wrote and directed this movie and it sounded like something I wanted to see it just from the interview. I was so surprised how well done it was, there were many brilliant awkward moments that did not go to far and cut off just in time to make it them perfectly plausible in real life. Most comedy now days goes way beyond this point and it just falls flat. A loved the movie and want to see more writing and directing from Lake Bell!

Format: DVD
This is a fun movie about a woman trying to get ahead in voiceover acting. Lake Bell is enough to recommend it since she has comic timing and an ear for dialogue. Her script is a generous depiction of both professional competitive voiceover actors and families and it pulls the rare trick of mocking without being mean about it (the sexy baby doll voice is a particular target). The script skews away from one-dimensional villains and broad stereotypes. Even Ken Marino's star voiceover actor who is introduced as the arrogant alpha male gets to show his insecurities and generosity, especially in his willingness to be good-natured about competition.

Beyond the fact that it's an enjoyable comedy with likeable people, there's a lot to this movie that I wish that I didn't admire - only because none of this should be rare in Hollywood movies. It passes the Bechdel Test without even trying. The protagonist has a one-night stand and is not punished for it. It doesn't depict the supporting female characters as bimbos for the female protagonists to overcome. Infidelity is depicted in a realistic manner with regret and hurt feelings. There's a love story that doesn't involve anyone "winning" anyone else so much as two characters who really like each other deciding to take a shot.

It shouldn't be so refreshing to see these things in a movie, but it is. In a better world, most movies would avoid the kinds of infantile morality and patriarchal domination that this movie avoids. However, even if these things were not rare, this would still be a great and fun movie.

This is a fun, fine movie. It centers a striving, tense family that sports two generations competing with mixed success in the business of Hollywood movie trailers and voice overs. We're shown in-your-face male chauvinism and we see it challenged. We also may be led to wonder about our own tacit complicity as consumers who get motivated by movie trailers. It's a sociological drama -- family, industry, society -- laced with love and laughs. Well written and well put together, Lake Bell stars as the the protagonist, writer, and director alike. Original stuff. I saw it on the big screen at an art house and I'd be glad to see it again sometime.

I'm not sure how this movie got overlooked during this awards season-- it was a wonderful little movie. It was perceptive, witty, and entertaining and despite great critical reviews upon release, managed to still be underrated when it has come time to the big awards shows. I'd highly recommend if you're looking for a quality movie that is as funny as it is smart.

What a fun glimpse into the egos and competition in the world of voiceovers. I was pleasantly surprised at the side story of marital strife. Such a gentle portrayal, in such contrast to the typical Hollywood melodrama, was a welcome highlight. The main character was lovable and gullible and served in the role of an Everyman who is at the mercy of familial affection--or lack thereof--and of the negative and positive aspects of gender inequality. The real victory in this story is that of her own personal growth and strength of character, despite the obstacles put forth in the plot. I enjoyed the contrast between stereotypes and individualism and the little surprises built into the character development. Subtle in its charms, I liked it enough to watch it twice, just to share it with a friend.
