What We Thought Before: Given that Lake Bell, the tall and lanky comedienne best known for her work on Adult Swim's "Children's Hospital" and HBO's now-defunct "How To Make It In America," won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, our hopes were high for her writing-directing debut to deliver.

Before, We Thought: Given that Lake Bell, the tall and lanky comedienne best known for her work on Adult Swim's "Children's Hospital" and HBO's now-defunct "How To Make It In America," won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, our hopes were high for her writing-directing debut to deliver.

And Now? It's clear why Roadside Attractions picked this up out of the festival. Despite its potentially niche-y subject matter -- the film centers a female voiceover actor trying to make a break for it in the male-centric industry -- Bell appears to have made a winning comedy, sure to appeal to even those unfamiliar with that world.

And while Bell looks appealing as ever in the lead role, she stocked her film full of great supporting players, all who seem to have brought their A-game to the table. These include her "Children's Hospital" castmate Ken Marino as a smarmy, speedo-loving voiceover hotshot, and a game Eva Longoria who sends up her own image in an amusing cameo.

"In a World..." opens in select theaters August 9.
