  • 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
