Now the only 90s intellectual high school comedy that I've left to watch is Rushmore. Perhaps intellectual is a wrong description for this film, it definitely very smart indeed. But I think intellectual implies that it might go over people's heads. And I don't wanna say the story is 'simple', because it's not, but this movie has a great way of telling its story. Great in the sense that it's easy to get into and it's easy to invest. This isn't exactly what I would call broad comedy, but I think it would still be enjoyed by people who don't even appreciate this kind of film. That's how well-written it is. Of course, it also helps when you have Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick as your leads. Both are perfectly cast here and they play off of each other very well. Granted, the film keeps their stories separate for the most but they, obviously, intersect. At first, McAllister pressures Paul to join the race as a hollow way of given the 'voters' some options as Tracy was running unopposed. But, as the film and election campaign progresses, and his life falling apart, McAllister starts to play a more active role in actively trying to make sure that Tracy does not win the election because of how annoying she is. And Reese Witherspoon plays the role to perfection, but she's not entirely unlikable as I believe her motivations are believable. First of all, her mother has put this enormous pressure on her to succeed in life, which can't be easy at that age, and her desire to be president is mostly due to the fact that she thinks it would bring her friends. It, obviously, didn't go that way as Tracy's personality can certainly come on a little strong sometimes. But, as mentioned, Reese plays this to perfection. Matthew is excellent as well as this mild-mannered, likable, and good teacher who, for one reason or another, finds himself obsessed with this election even as his life goes down the tubes due to an affair. There's narration from all characters involved and McAllister's was easily the best because what he said typically never matched up with what was actually going on in the film. He'll be telling a story about his affair with Linda got started and the complications that brought and he'll end it with 'You could say my life was going really well'. His cheery optimism even in the face of being forced to live in a way too expensive, yet small, apartment, a shitty job as a museum guide, being forced to move away from his city because of the scandal at the school, and losing his wife is something to behold. It's certainly funny. And, of course, the satire on the nature of politics and elections is not lost on me. It's certainly a very smart film and one with more on its mind than meets the eye. But I digress, this is a very good movie and it's certainly underrated among 90s comedies. I'd definitely recommend it if you have Netflix. And even if you don't. It's worth watching.

David B (mx) wrote: I've got to admit, Ryan Reynolds is my new favorite actor. While it may not necessarily be a film that will be universally embraced by genre fans, The Voices is a triumphant example of independent film-making at its very best, especially dark comedies and is undoubtedly one of the best roles Reynolds' has tackled to date, aside from his "born to play" Deadpool. It's a concept I'm surprised hasn't been done over and over. The simple, funny plot is about Jerry, 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. The easiest way to put it is think of it as a stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi and a meeting of Psycho, Dexter and Dr. Doolittle, then you have The Voices. More funny than gory, which is not a bad thing and I've said before that dark comedies are hard to do, this one nails it.
