Comedies should make one laugh frequently. And this one did! A refreshing treat that I highly recommend.

Quirky throughout, and got my attention quickly. Sort of loses momentum at about 2/3 mark, but I say don't give up. It picks up drama and speed toward the end, and a few characters take surprising turns.

This was written by the lead actress Bell Lake. What a talent she is. Not only was this funny, but she has been able to convey herself as a very quirky lead. The display of the disfunction is what makes this film functional. She has a cast that is quirky like her, and has written situations that one might find themselves in in reality. But, then again, I'm just a little quirky myself. She made me laugh.

Noticed that some people of the people who definitely disliked this film tried it only for a short time. That was a mistake. I too found the beginning a bit confusing and tedious. But as the film progressed it got better and better until I was thoroughly enjoying it towards the end. Also, this is obviously a low budget film so don't expect a lot of well known actors, great scenery, and amazing special effects. But it still works because the subject and people are quite interesting and enjoyable. One more thing. If you believe that women are second class citizens and should not progress in the business world, you will not like this film.

Thought it was an interesting insight into the voiceover biz.

This is a movie that succeeds in being serious but making fun of itself at the same time. A theme that runs through this movie is the sexism endemic in male-dominated professions whose "rules" have never changed; it's blatant in the way the main character's legendary voiceover father Sam tells her she'll never be good enough to compete with the men, but subtle and funny in details like his decor and chocolate brown velour tracksuit that seem to hearken back to his glory days. I will admit that Lake Bell's character/acting gets annoying - it's like she's trying to imitate Kristen Wiig as Annie Walker and isn't succeeding. Yes, it drags at times, but I feel that it's a real but funny look at a person trying to navigate their life and actually deal with what they encounter, unlike other "quirky" films that go nowhere. Overall it was better and more complex than I anticipated.

10 minutes and no more... so painful to watch. Would not recommend. Had great hopes.
