Romance, voiceovers and jokes

Actor/writer/director Lake Bell puts her money where her mouth is in this comedy, which sees her unappreciated vocal coach battle to break into the all-male enclave of the movie-trailer voiceover.

That’s easier said than done with her overbearing father (A Serious Man’s Fred Melamed) ruling the roost, though with the help of Demetri Martin’s lovestruck tech-nerd and upcoming film The Amazon Games (a satire of...  guess), she might just make a noise in this milieu.

Cameos from Eva Longoria, Geena Davis and Cameron Diaz help this Sundance hit to punch above its weight, even if its anti-sexist polemic is largely just talk.
