“The Voices” movie quotes bring some awkward laughs as one mentally unstable man, on the advice of his talking cat, murders his coworkers. The comedy-horror film was directed by Marjane Satrapi using a screenplay by Michael R. Perry. “The Voices” first opened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival before a theatrical release on February 6, 2015.
In “The Voices,” Jerry Hickfang (Ryan Reynolds) is a seemingly normal and nice new employee at the Milton Bathtub Factory. He gets along well with his coworkers and even meets some nice women from accounting, Lisa (Anna Kendrick) and Fiona (Gemma Arterton). But once he stops taking his prescribed anti-psychotic medication, things take a deadly turn.
Jerry begins having conversations with his pets, dog Bosco and cat Mr. Whiskers (both voiced by Ryan Reynolds). While Bosco is the optimist of the bunch, Mr. Whiskers urges Jerry to begin killing his coworkers and psychiatrist, Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver). Things only get stranger when the severed heads of his kills begin talking to him as well, setting him up for a puzzling and bizarre end.“The Voices” joins theaters already packed with other great films such as ”Jupiter Ascending,” ”Seventh Son,” ”The SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out of Water Movie,” ”Black or White,” ”Project Almanac,” ”The Loft,” ”Wild Card,” ”Mortdecai,” ”The Boy Next Door,” ”Black Sea,” ”Strange Magic,” ”Still Alice,” ”The Wedding Ringer,” ”Blackhat,” ”Taken 3,” ”Predestination,” ”A Most Violent Year,” ”The Interview,” ”Unbroken,” ”American Sniper,” ”Into the Woods,” ”Big Eyes,” ”The Gambler,” ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” and ”Annie.”
Do You Ever Hear Voices?
Dr. Warren: “How are you doing, Jerry?”
Jerry: “They like me at work. There’s a girl. I like her.”
Dr. Warren: “Do you ever hear voices?”
Jerry: “Voices? Not really… Mr. Whiskers, he makes me do bad things.”
Dr. Warren: “You totally stopped taking the pills, didn’t you?”
You Have The Greatest Hair, Tom
Tom: “Hey, Jerry, give me a break!”
Jerry: “Oh, okay, I’ll tone it down a little bit… You have the greatest hair, Tom, in the back.”
One Step Away From the Looney Bin
Fiona: “Look what you did to me.”
Mr. Whiskers: “Well, that’s one step away from the looney bin.”
Jerry: “I’m so sorry.”
Mr. Whiskers: “In her eyes, you’re a ridiculous peasant! Kill her and you will discover what it feels like to be truly alive!”Mr. Whiskers is clearly a bad influence on Jerry when he suggests that Jerry needs to kill his coworker to feel truly alive. Sadly, Jerry listens to his cat’s advice and does just that.
