In a World... (2013)

Director: Lake Bell. Cast: Lake Bell, Rob Corddry, Fred Melamed, Demetri Martin, Eva Longoria, Geena Davis, Cameron Diaz. 93 min. Rated R. Comedy.

The famous Don LaFontaine, one of the few men to enunciate the words "In a world where ..." at the beginning of movie trailers, dies, and voice coaches (including a female) are in a jealousy-laden last-man-standing fight to inherit the role. First directing feature by actress/writer Lake Bell is weak in both acting and directing departments, and the story contains subplots that are there just to lengthen the movie. Other than the somewhat new subject, I couldn't find a reason for the movie's 92% Tomatometer score.
