The Voices 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.

Review The Voices :
One of Ryan Reynolds' best performances!
The Voices may be one of Ryan Reynolds' best performances. As a huge Reynolds' fan, my thoughts when watching this film were that, in contrast to every other film Ryan has made, this was a Ryan we had never seen before. I have never been unhappy with Ryan's work (except, maybe RIPD), but after watching The Voices, it seemed to me that all I had seen up till now was Ryan playing "Berg", basically. Ryan being the funny guy. Even in Super Hero films, Ryan was a comedian with a smart mouth. Yes, he also plays Ryan who is terrified, (Buried), but in this new movie, The Voices, you hardly recognize him. In fact, it is so rare, that on the handful of occasions where Ryan would make a facial expression or use a tone of voice that was familiar, I found myself noting, "Oh, there's a Ryan expression."
There is a shower scene and die-hard Reynolds' fans will probably find themselves hoping the camera will pan down to his chest (they don't), despite the fact that he is not in his usual ripped condition.
I watched the movie twice in a row. I later watched it a third time. Unfortunately, unless you really like black humor, this movie is not something you will want to watch 6 or 7 times. Not because Ryan's performance is less than spectacular, but simply because the movie does not leave you feeling uplifted or warm and happy inside. The end of the film (when they roll the credits), conversely, is one of the best parts of the film. I liken it to Austin Powers. It is truly entertaining and I can't seem to stop rewinding and watching it again.
It is a tremendously interesting film that definitely keeps your attention the entire time. I would highly recommend you do not watch the trailers' first. I know better, but never can seem to help myself. I watched the trailers and would definitely recommend that you do not.
I would say it is a must-see for anyone at least once!
