Adorable, fun and a perfect date movie.
It's a rom-com that's based in the "Voice Over" world and it was adorable. Lots of great voice actors have bit parts and you get an insider's view of "the biz." Lake Bell plays a totally awkward voice actress/voice coach perfectly and I found it to be a totally lovely movie.
If you are looking for something light and fun, this is the movie for you.

Way more than the sum of its parts. Insights (& in-jokes) about the Voice Over world, a great character comedy with a sensitive exploration of relationships & their frustrations, a bit of triumph of the underdog--with a reality-check as well--& some wonderful performances by lots of unsung but familiar faces. Lake Bell is multi-hyphenate (writer, director, star) fantastic, but so is Michaela Watkins as her sister. Cameos by a lot of VO greats (Joe Cipriano, Marc Graue, Melissa Disney) but watch out for a sneaky little cameo by Cameron Diaz, as well. Worth seeing twice. Suitable for any age, but it won't hold children's interest.

Using the oft overlooked world of voice-over as a backdrop, Bell has delivered a film that is an important social satire without the snobbish condescension which that designation may imply.

Lake Bell movingly and humorously deals with family and human interactions in a way that's so believable and ultimately caring that the film's "story" is deeply impressing.
