The outline of the film shows a lot of potential for [Lake] Bell's future directorial projects, and ability to bring out the authenticity in her characters and cast, but the execution leaves much to be desired.

What a pleasant surprise.

In a World... is far from perfect and doesn't quite have the laser-focus of a more seasoned writer and director, but even the most awkward and fumbling moments of the film are a joy to watch and experience.

Very funny semi-satirical look at the bitchy, male-dominated world of movie trailer voice over people.

Writer-director Lake Bell is also the star of this quick-witted beguiling comedy of female identity, family ties and an unseen but fiercely competitive aspect of the film business.

The entire cast operates at the top of their game. Yet it's Bell who is undeniably the main attraction.

Though she had to write, direct, and produce the damn thing herself, Bell finally has a film that puts her full range of comedic, rom-com-ready abilities on display.

It will gently settle into the undistinguished ranks of history's perfectly okay works of art. I won't sing it's praises, but I don't regret watching it either.

Father-daughter dramedy about an aspiring voiceover artist eager to follow in her deep-voiced daddy's footsteps.

While certainly funny and goofy, In A World... also imparts an important message about the power of voice, and Bell is clearly a voice to be heard.

What pleasure then to find an August release that's built around real, identifiable humans, and sports a complicated but lovably flawed woman at its center.

Although In a World... won Bell a screenwriting award at the Sundance Film Festival, what's more compelling is how well this low-key comedy exhibits her charms as an actress.

November 15, 2013
Actress Lake Bell's smart and funny feature-directing debut In a World... juggles sex farce, feminist critique, family conflict and showbiz satire pretty deftly.

This smart, funny comedy is not just about voice-overs, it is about the massive egos of men who tend to lose sight of what is really important (family for instance) in the pursuit of their careers.
