Movie Info

Jerry is a seemingly normal man trying to succeed in his new job at the Milton Bathtub Factory. He lives in a normal apartment the type you would expect from a young bachelor with his dog, Bosco, and his cat, Mr. Whiskers. Yet something seems off. As the new guy at work, Jerry is asked to help plan the company picnic, and he meets Fiona, an attractive English girl from accounting. Jerry immediately takes a liking to Fiona and excitedly goes home to tell his pets about her. And surprisingly, they answer. But all this is just the beginning of an insanely bizarre and twisted tale.

Think of this stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi as a meeting of Psycho, Dexter and Dr. Doolittle.

The movie has to be taken at face value: As a wacky and unsettling jaunt into sheer madness.

Casting Ryan Reynolds as a small-town geek who has trouble getting a date may seem as pointless as taking a loving cup to a Leafs game, but the bright-eyed Canadian star makes this dark, dark comedy twinkle with offbeat appeal.

A deeply warped, darkly funny and thoroughly depraved horror comedy. Ryan Reynolds gives one of his best performances.

Top Critic

It's the most likable Ryan Reynolds has been in a film in, well, forever, basically. He's not necessarily good, mind you.

The film is mostly a mess, albeit an occasionally endearing one.

Audience Reviews for The Voices

It is a rare find to see a film that works so (tonally) well trying to be simultaneously hilarious, charming, surreal and gruesome, forcing us to share its character's insanity and the disturbing nuances of his illness and thus becoming a tragic and horrifying experience in the end.

Ryan Reynolds has come a long way since his "Two guys and girl", "Blade", or even "Romantic-comedy" days, in this unequivocal career-best performance -- yes, better than even Deadpool and I'm willing to challenge anyone who wishes to repudiate that. The strangest, pleasant surprise of a movie, that I've stumbled into, lately.

Hilariously twisted, The Voices is an insanely funny dark comedy. The story follows a factory worker named Jerry who's a delusional schizophrenic that hears voices, and after accidentally killing a co-worker he starts to question his sanity (with the help of his dog and his cat). Starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, and Anna Kendrick, the casting is pretty good; Reynolds in particular gives an amazing performance. And, the script does an excellent job at showing Jerry's inner struggle with his different personalities. The comedy is also remarkably well-done, and brings some levity to the murder and mayhem of the film. However, at times things get a little too silly and the tone becomes uneven. Still, while The Voices may have its issues, overall it's incredibly entertaining and a lot of fun.
