The Voices -- Jerry 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. 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.

Did You Know?

Trivia:
Director Marjane Satrapi was initially going to hire voice actors for the animals' voices, however Ryan Reynolds convinced her that he should do them as they are voices that his character hears in his head, and therefore should be different variations of his voice. He convinced her by sending her recordings of his voice, tailored specifically for each of the animals.See more »

A very dark film with plenty of hilarious comedy, 7 February 2015
Author: stephendaxter

The Voices is a dark comedy starring Ryan Reynolds who begins to hear voices through both his cat and dog who try to persuade him to do certain good or not so good things. I really didn't know what to expect before seeing this film but boy was i pleasantly surprised by what i saw. One thing this film does really well is that when it turns dark, it turns really dark really fast and then it somehow manages to instantly lighten the mood and make you laugh. The comedic elements in this film worked really well and got me to laugh pretty much every time and for a film that gets so dark and depressing at multiple times it is a very good accomplishment.

Ryan Reynolds was incredible in this movie, he absolutely nailed his role of a person who is very damaged but also oblivious to what he is doing and has done. It was one of his best performances and was just amazing on screen, which makes me more excited to see his future films. The supporting cast was very good also, especially Anna Kendrick, she also put in an awesome performance and cant wait to see more from her. The overall plot was very well written, there were so many hilarious twists and turns that made this film very unpredictable and a fun experience. In the end i absolutely loved this film, not only did it provide a very dark story it also provided plenty of moments to laugh at and had a very pleasant blend of the two, making this film my favourite of 2015 so far. - 8.6
