Since she was a little girl putting on nightly shows to stave off bedtime and using her father’s Dictaphone to stealthily record interesting accents, Lake Bell has been fascinated by voices.

The film, which opens Friday, is also the directorial debut for Bell, the 34-year-old actress of TV shows such as “Boston Legal,” films like “No Strings Attached” and, increasingly, comedy like Rob Corddry’s “Childrens Hospital.”
The latter has proven a particular inspiration for Bell, who has taken up writing and creating her own content. She is already writing her next script.
