あらすじ・解説

Looking for an escape from reality? Then look no further!

Escape from Virtual Island is an epic comedy adventure starring Paul Rudd, written by John Lutz of Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and 30 Rock, and produced by Broadway Video.

Rounding out the ensemble cast in this genre-hopping, madcap comedy are Emmy nominee Jack McBrayer, Wine Country and AP Bio’s Paula Pell, Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Amber Ruffin, and 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit.

The Audible Original also features the voice talents of Jason Sudeikis, Jane Krakowski, Olivia Wilde, Kenan Thompson, Seth Meyers, Rachel Dratch, Henry Winkler, and a host of other comedy favorites.

About the story:

In the year 2038, there’s only one destination that can play host to the world’s wealthiest adventure seekers: the Pengalaman Island Resort and Virtual Reality Theme Park. Located on a private South Pacific island, guests here live out their wildest fantasies in custom-made virtual reality simulations while also enjoying the usual amenities of an exclusive five-star getaway.

All is relatively breezy until famed billionaire and avid guest, Mr. Wagner (Sudeikis), goes missing within a virtual simulation. His only hope? A daring rescue led by Derek Ambrose (Rudd), the maladjusted heir to his mother’s resort empire, and his ragtag search party consisting of Faith (Ruffin), a tech-nerd extraordinaire (and naturally, his ex); Ramona Kurtz (Pell), the foul-mouthed head of island security; and Beasley (McBrayer), the resort’s lead concierge and Ambrose family confidant.

What ensues is a high-octane, comedy throwback filled with memorable performances throughout, and a reminder that real life can be the ultimate experience if you’re just willing to open your heart and dive in headfirst.

Please note: This content is not for kids. It is for mature audiences only. This audio comedy features adult language, sexual content, and virtually every innuendo you can literally imagine. Discretion is advised.

Story is a Bit Stupid

Obviously, 'Escape from Virtual Island' is voiced by some very talented people, so I won't waste any time talking about the various performances. Everyone was stellar and is probably why I listened to the whole thing.

I'm actually a fan of John Lutz. He wrote and acted in 30 Rock (my favorite show of all time), SNL, and various other shows. Surprisingly, this was probably the worst thing he's done that I've seen/listened to. The whole story was super boring and there was so much potential for this idea. I wanted to LOVE this, but I just can't... The pure predictability of the story line was something a child could figure out (although, this is definitely a Mature title).

I don't think I've ever given a book or Audible Original this bad of a grade, but I have to be honest; the story gets an F on my grading scale and the cast gets an A.

Just Not Good...

The cast is amazing, and I listened to the whole thing, hoping it would get better. It did not.

I may be the odd one out on this one, but I didn’t find it funny or well written. Too bad, great potential with such a great cast.

entertaining and very punny

one of the most entertaining stories I've heard in a long while. The whole cast was fantastic. I laughed and guffawed alot which felt good during this shelter in place.
Highly recommend if you enjoyed Airplane!, and Spaceballs type of humor or if you just love Paul Rudd.

Amazing Cast, Hilarious Story

This was such a fun and exciting Audible Original! Took so many twists and turns - like a action comedy movie for your ears. The cast was phenomenal and the production quality was A++!

Just too many corny puns and weirdness for me

I saw a pretty good review and a lot of big names involved in this production. It was, well for lack of a better term, dumb. I like Sci-Fi but this was inane. I was very disappointed. I did listen to the bitter end hoping it would get better, It didn't.

Love It!!

Dear Audible:

More star-studded comedy audio series like this, please! This was so much fun. Jack McBrayer is always the best, and so is Paul Rudd. We need more comedy series like these if we're going to survive quarantine.

Harder to get through than it should have been.

First things first. You're basically listening to Kenneth from 30 Rock rather than Beasley. You won't be able to get him out of your head. The rest of the cast do a good job, though

There are some very funny lines in this, but they come too rarely. The story gets repetitive and the style gets repetitive (saying one thing but meaning another that has to do with something approaching that's going to kill them). I enjoyed the first 3 chapters immensely. Then it became a challenge to get through 4-11.

Overall, I did enjoy it, but it would definitely have benefited from some editing. The "twist" was predictable, and the ending was straight out of a Touchstone Pictures film from the 80s or 90s.

Surprising

I knew nothing about this beforehand (apart from the stellar cast) and it was a brilliant experience. It was humorous, well acted and suspenseful. All set in a virtual world. Highly recommended as a fun short story.

Great cast

Performances were great, some of the jokes fell flat, and the story was mediocre at times, but the stellar cast did a great job of voicing the characters.

Unbelievable - This was free!

Well I do not write reviews very often, but in this case feel the need to share my experience. This story was so good and had me chuckling along - I was that impressed I would re-listen to a chapter once finished to stave off the ending. And this was a free title, I have paid for stories that I have given up on!
Well worth a listen, great characters and storyline and so many funny lines, oh and the singing!
Enough - download and listen now! You will not be disappointed.

Entertaining virtual fun

There is an island where you can pay to live your dreams virtually. Derek Ambrose is the son of the woman that created this virtual world and lives hiding from the real world. Together with his staff, he tries to recover a missing person and that's when things turn wrong. Virtually speaking. Great acting and sound effects!

An Escape

Escape from Virtual Island was an enjoyable escapist listen.

The story is predictable, characters generic, the jokes are unoriginal yet it is still funny.

Finishing this felt like an escape of some kind, I was unsure how much longer it could be played out. I wouldn’t listen again but would look at other work by the same team.

LOL so much

After listening on earbuds for 10 minutes, had to take them off so others could hear because I laughed too much. Excellently preformed, didn't even miss the visuals. (High content of swearing on explicit topics)

Quirky

Quirky, light, easy listening. A bit fun never hurt anyone. Not something I would normally listen to, but glad I did.
