So I'm all about the idea of In a World...

...but the execution seems a just little bit flat.  Judging from the trailer, writer/director/lead actor Lake Bell does well, but it would have been nice if they'd cast someone with actual announcer credits (there are women who do that job, you know).  Likewise, Fred Melamed is no Don LaFontaine, and while I like Demetri Martin's comedy, his screen performance is just north of meh.

Even if it's just a solid B, though, this is a good thing.  More films by women means fewer films by the likes of Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan - a win for everyone.

(And lest you think I'm picking on In a World..., I'm actually going to see it, which is kind of a big deal as I've probably only seen two or three movies so far this year.)
