Contemplating Voice Overs

In a previous post, in which I bemoaned the complete bastardization of twist-endings, I mentioned the movie Adaptation. In particular I mentioned the scene where, while Charlie Kaufman sits through a Robert McKee seminar, McKee interrupts a voiceover to slag them off, calling them “flaccid, sloppy writing.” At the time this had me thinking about twist endings but lately I’ve begun to wonder about the use of voiceovers and why there would be such hatred for them.
