"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! It is rare for a movie to make people laugh out loud, reason why comedies are so hard to make and be successful.

Funniest bits in the trailer. Disappointing considering all the hype. Storyline had a lot of potential, but seemed like most of it might have ended up on the cutting room floor.

I suppose this may be how modern films are going but this was not for me. The action seemed to move between unconnected scenes with little story and did not seem to be funny.

Very much a ‘if you are into this sort of thing’ decision to make here. It’s a film loaded with US sit-com and soap opera culture so if this is your bag then you will enjoy it. It didn’t make me laugh once and became tedious. It’s bit of a girlie storey to tell the truth!
It is well produced and acted but you have to be a fan of this genre to enjoy it.

This is a fun and funny little comedy drama, similar in style and tone to much of Woody Allens output. A tale of family strife and tangled love lives with a cracking sense of humour.

It's good to see Lake Bell in a leading role and she heads up a great supporting cast list (as well as sitting in the directors chair). Fans of Woody Allen or Julie Delpys recent films will get a lot out of this one. Many others will have a giggle as well. Recommended.

A not very funny comedy. Slightly amusing, reasonably acted, very light but predictable script, unusual topic. An easy watch, but not bad enough to be irritating. There are better ways to pass the time of day.
