In A World

What I liked:

  • Lake Bell shows that she is a triple threat as she wrote it, directed it, and stared in it.
  • It's quirky and charming.
  • It has an interesting premise with an inside look at the voice over industry.  
  • The B story line is also interesting and gives the film a little more heart.
  • Fabulous cast: Rob Corddry, Demetri Martin, Fred Melamed, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Alexandra Holden, Eva Longoria, Nick Offerman, Tig Notaro, Melissa Disney, Corsica Wilson, Jason O'Mara, Jeff Garlin, and Geena Davis.
  • It has a great soundtrack.
  • There is a fantastic Cameron Diaz cameo.
  • What the what!
  • Girl power!

What I didn't like:
  • Nick Offerman without a beard is not Nick Offerman.
  • It starts off slow.
  • It should have been funnier, not to say that it wasn't funny, I just expected more funniness.

Fun Fact from
  • "According to Lake Bell, there are almost no notable film trailers that have employed female voice-over talent except for Gone in 60 Seconds, which used Melissa Disney."

Grade: A-
