The movie "Her," starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, is about a man who falls in love with a computer voice.

Washington Post wonder columnist Richard Cohen went to see it and wrote about his raw experience:

It is not about someone special up there on the screen — someone crazy or larcenous or brave, someone in outer space or alone on a boat — but you and me, especially if you’re a man. ...

I am about to get voice-recognition software for my computer. I talk to Siri and to my car, so I do not find it inconceivable that soon a Samantha is possible. The other day, after all, I got an e-mail from the Uber app that was signed “Love.” In the (near) future, they’d better be careful. My Samantha (the voice in "Her"), like me, will be the jealous type.
