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!Read more ›
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.
That is probably the IMDB version of what this movie is about, but that would be selling it very short. This movie has an awkward charm to it. It deftly touches on themes of family, sexism, marriage and new love, while almost always being funny. The performances from Rob Coddry, Michaela Watkins and Lake Bell are understated, but so right. And this movie made me a fan of Lake Bell.
If you are looking for a movie to watch with your wife that won't make you want to claw your eyes out, In A World won't disappoint. It is a funny and sincere movie that departs from the romantic comedy formula and becomes something much more engaging. I truly enjoyed this movie.
