Novocaine (2001)

Title: Novocaine
Released: 2001
Genre: Comedy / Mystery / Crime / Thriller / Drama
Runtime: 95 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Tagline: Crime Is Not Only Done By Criminals.

Plot Summary: Novocaine, an edgy, unpredictable crime thriller, stars Steve Martin as prosperous dentist Frank Sangster whose well-ordered existence is thrown into turmoil when an alluring new patient draws him into a seedy underworld or sex, drugs and murder.

Comments: Basically its Steve Martin in a modern film noir, only in color. If you were wondering about Helen Bonham Carter's performance in fight Club, here it is again. It sags a bit at times, never really builds momentum. Acting was great, story is good, definitely worth seeing, but not as good as it could have been. Interesting Kevin bacon turn as an actor researching a film. Best quote: "this isn't a movie, it's real life."
