Storyline

Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush (Gemma Arterton). However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path. Written by Lionsgate

When Jerry talks to Fiona after he put her head in the refrigerator, a gap can clearly be seen next to Fiona's neck. This is most likely the hole where the actress stuck her head through. See more »

Autistic Reviewers opinion on this movie.

The Voices (Australian DVD Release)

Looking at this title, it's got nothing to do with the popular reality television show but I can admit that this film won't be everyone's cup of tea unless you love your comedies to be dark and really have an adult tone to it. This film features not only a great performance by Ryan Reynolds, but it features a good attempt in terms of story, character development and production value.

The film follows an upbeat man named Jerry (Reynolds ) who works at a bathtub factory, and lives in a modified apartment above a bowling alley with his dog Bosco and his cat, Mr. Whiskers (both voiced by Reynolds). Jerry is a man with an innocent, almost child-like demeanour, and suffers from delusions and hallucinations that manifest in the form of his pets talking to him. Bosco often represents his good intentions while Mr. Whiskers represents his more violent nature. One day, his manager compliments his hard work and chooses him to help organize an employee barbecue, and he gladly accepts the opportunity to work with a British woman named Fiona (Gemma Arterton) who Jerry has an awkward crush on. The following day he asks her out on a date. She initially agrees, though with reluctance, but then stands him up to go to a karaoke party with two other girls who work with her in the accounting department at work. From there, it takes Jerry further into his psychological personality and challenges him to embrace his 'sinister' side while fighting to know what his happiness is.

What I could take from the film is the fact that the story's protagonist can be seen as a likable or hated character, either way we can see that his journey explores into his dark past and yet at times during the film we are given moments of dark humour; especially from his pets who engage with Jerry with social conversations about whether to be good (Bosco) or to be truly sinister in the world (Mr Whiskers) and at times Jerry himself in the social world. Reynolds is given a really great role and with the script (written by Michael R. Perry) his character is given close detail in development and personality. The supporting cast features the talents of Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and fellow Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (from Silver Linings Playbook) and more, they are given great moments and they handle themselves well in the film, aiding in the darkly tale of Jerry's schizophrenia.

Looking at now direction and production value, it's directed by graphic novelist Iranian-born French Marjane Satrapi who gives the film a fairy tale vibe but for adults and exploring the themes of schizophrenia, identity, love and the will to be the better or worse man. Having know for her illustrative works and children's books. Satrapi's take on the genre is truly great but it won't be taken afar if the viewer doesn't like his or her films dark and yet comedic. Cinematography is dark and convincing like if it's a horror film thanks to Maxime Alexandre (The Hills Have Eyes, P2), he manages to make the darker side of Jerry's personality really grim and can balance the lighter side to Jerry's good persona.

Overall, The Voices is funny, dark, driven to that balance horror and comedy with such aplomb you forget that what's happening on the screen isn't exactly healthy or good. Thanks to the talents of it's director, screenwriter and wonderful cast, it's worth a look into if you admire darkly themed comedy/horrors with adult tones and themes.

3.5/5 - Nick
