In fact, Bell the writer, director, producer and actress knows how to set a savvy trap. While we're laughing, she pulls the rug out, making us see Carol's world as a microcosm for the world every working woman lives in. That she does it with subtlety, humor and touching gravity marks Bell as a filmmaker to watch. show more
The deliriously talented Lake Bell wrote, produced, directed and stars in this peculiar bit of comedy magic, set amid the cutthroat world of Hollywood voiceover artists. show more
A lively, sometimes very funny comedy. show more
Definitely the funniest comedy I\'ve seen this year, and the best rom/com that I\'ve seen in I can\'t remember how long. I especially love the sendup of the obnoxious contemporary trend of young women \'uptalking\' (raising the pitch at the end of every sentence so that a statement sounds like a question). And the central romance is the sweetest, most awkward onscreen courtship since Annie Hall and Alvy Singer.
I thought this was a terrific movie. Uniquely amusing, maybe not LOL but totally chuckle, chortle, think, chuckle. Love Lake Bell. Gotta see this sleeper
A feel good movie
