'In A World (2013)'


Carol (Lake Bell) wants to hit it big in the voice over world of entertainment. She wants those commercials, trailers. Her father Sam (Fred Melamed) has been in the business for years. He is about to be given an award for a lifetime achievement in the business. It is not a business that you will become rich but it pays the bills.

Now Sam is about to have his girlfriend move in and wants his daughter Carol to move out. It seems Jaime (Alexandra Holden) is about the same age of Carol and Sam thinks it is going to be awkward. Carol heads over to her sisters apartment to see if she can crash on the couch. Dani (Michaela Watkins) and her husband Moe (Rob Corddry) don't seem to mind her moving in and actually by the way they act they kind of thought she would at sometime.

Now Carol is helping Eva Longoria with some voice work when her friend Louis (Demetri Martin) gets her to do a quick trailer. She eventually gets it and beats out one of the up an coming in the business. Gustav ( Ken Marino) is not happy with all this and runs to Carol's father Sam to complain. Problem is they don't realize it's Carol until later.

Now here's where it gets crazy. Carol goes to a party with her father and it just happens to be at Gustav's place. In the end, Gustav beds Carol and doesn't even realize she is the one who took the job. Eventually he does find out and laughs it off. This is a nonsensical movie that deals with an occupation that most people take for granted.

Director Lake Bell does a duel role as she directs the movie and also stars in it. You will wonder when your done watching the movie that you even made it through all the way. It is time consuming as I say on an occupation that most people really don't think exists. It is a comical journey but it is a journey not advised to take. Walk away, quickly walk away.
