The Voices

Synopsis: 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.

Hey, Jerry.

Hey, Mr. Kowalski.

Call me Dennis.

It's okay.

Just wanted to say

we're very pleased.

You're doing a great job.

Thank you,

Mr. Kowalski.

That's what I told that

lady from the courts.

"A great job," I said.

She's your lawyer?

She's a court-appointed

psychiatrist, Dennis.

Thank you for... thank

you for saying that.

No problem.

So, Jerry, the thing is,

is Milton Fixtures every year

has the company party,

a barbecue.


And we get one representative

from each department

to help put it on,

usually the new guy.

And the new guy

in Shipping is you.

So, you...

want me to help plan the party?

It's voluntary, off the clock.

There will be others, too.

Someone from Sales,

a guy from Design,

that cute English chick

in Accounting, Fiona.

- You wanna do it?

- Yes, I do! Of course I do.

- Thank you.

- Cool.

First meeting

is tomorrow night at 5:00.

Yeah, I wanna get it on.

I wanna get it on.

The company buys

pizza and beer.

Okay, I'm in.

Thank you, Dennis.

- It'll be fun.

- Thank you, Dennis.

Okay, okay.


Who's my guy?

Who's my guy?

Who's my guy?

Who's my guy?

Who's a good boy?

Who's a good boy?

You're a good boy!

You're a good boy!

What you doin', Jerry?

Something for work.

Those assholes give you

homework now?

Trying on a shirt for tomorrow.

They got something

that they want me to do.

A shirt?

- Shouldn't that be a straitjacket?

- Shut up.

You act like they're doing you

a favor to let you work there,

like they should be able

to f*ck you in the ass

without lube

whenever they want,

like some big privilege,

letting you work for free

on their picnic.

How do you know

about the picnic?

- I know everything, Jerry.

- I'm not talking to you.

They'll mock you the second

you leave the room, Jerry.

You're an unstable crybaby.

I'm not a crybaby.

You're crying right now, liar.

Come on.

The only reason

they don't fire your ass

is because you're

so hopelessly pathetic,

- you amuse them.

- Shut up!

Before we break up here,

I wanna go over

the assignments.

We're... we're just gonna

go around the table, okay?

Can your comment wait?

I just wanna say

that the picnic

is gonna be a good place

to reach out

and form relationships

with other people.

Duly noted, Jerry.

We all wanna

get out of here, so...

John, you'll be setting up

the barbecue grills

in the parking lot,

Dave's bringing drinks,

Sheryl's providing decorations,

and Fiona's doing the music.

- Any questions?

- Oh, yeah.

I've got an idea

while we were sitting here.

You know the office corridor?

I thought it would be the

perfect place for a conga line.

Mmm, like at a wedding?

Or a cruise ship.

It's really easy.

Anyone can conga.

I'll set my head on fire

before I conga.

Men are afraid to dance.

The male ego is too fragile.

I'm not afraid.

I'm a man.

I think it sounds real fun.

Thanks, Jerry.

Well, it's not the coolest

thing in the world,

but we're talking about a party

in a toilet factory, after all.

Okay, it's settled.

We'll go with the conga line.

Moving on.


I'm setting up

the P.A. system tomorrow,

so if everything works out,

I'm good to go.

And, uh, I thank you all.

And my extension

in Shipping is 5-1865.

No. Dave, go screw yourself.

Sheryl, Dave, come on.

We're done here.

We'll see you all

at the picnic.

Anyone who wants

the leftover pizza,

please take it.

- Bye.

- Bye.

Hey, do you want

any of this pizza, John?

Cold pizza?

No, thank you.

Oh, free pizza.

What's better than free pizza?

Lots of things.

Sushi, for example.

I don't know.
