Consensus: A funny, well-written screwball satire for film buffs, In a World... proves an auspicious beginning for writer, director, and star Lake Bell.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

Can't wait to see what Lake Bell the filmmaker does next.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

It's an exhilarating comic rush called In a World... and in it Lake Bell spins inspired lunacy around the subject of, among other things like family dysfunction, sexual healing and female empowerment, voiceovers.

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.

There's a difference between paying your dues and self-abasement, but you wouldn't know it from this overstuffed and joyless film.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

A clever, likable comedy that sends up sexism, satirizes Hollywood, examines family ties and features a surprisingly tender romance at its core

Pin-sharp observant one minute, appealingly messy the next, this marks [Lake] Bell as one of America's most promising new talents.

Denver Post

An indie comedy as surprisingly tender and wise as it is deftly wise-cracking.

Sr. Rose Pacatte

What a pleasant surprise.

A quirky comedy based around the high flying world of the voice actor, well the trailer looked quirky. A small budget film whose main star wrote, co-produced… More

Speak up and let your voice be heard. Good Comedic Film! This modest comedy takes place in the mini-world of people who do voice overs. Apparently this world… More

Didn't blow me away, but it was cute, light, funny, entertaining, etc. I'd watch it again.

I believe that the main disconnect between viewers and critics of this film, was that critics realized that Lake Bell writing, directing, and starring in a film… More
Sam Barnett
There's a laid-back style to Lake Bell's humor that makes her film undeniably refreshing, though also frustratingly unfocused at times.
