[This is a re-post of my review from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.  In a World...opens today in limited release.]

I usually like movies that have some sense of structure and pacing. If they don’t have these qualities, then I like these films to be truly daring and outside-the-box. Lake Bell‘s In a World… is a rambling mess of a nice little comedy with too many characters, and has almost no sense of pacing or flow. But somehow, it’s still a charming flick. Bell gives a fun lead performance, and she surrounds herself with a likable cast. Even the subtext is cutesy. In a World… should be a movie that I found a slog, but somehow, Bell’s film won me over despite its glaring flaws.
