Prejudicado por um roteiro previsvel e que jamais opta por um gnero claro, o filme traz uma tima atuao de Steve Martin, que deveria fazer mais filmes "srios".

The film and site offer an offbeat trip, but this is certainly not recommended for anyone who's currently thinking about major dental work.

To say this is black comedy is to understate the case, but the fun parts really are a hoot.

In a world filled with technically beautiful dogs, every once in awhile it's nice to see a film that bets the bank on great storytelling and a whole lot of soul.

...one of the funniest dark comedies in recent years.

This Hitchcockian yarn compensates for its leading man's rather anonymous performance with some well-placed shocks, a morbid sense of humour, and a climax that will literally put your teeth on edge.

Has everything one would hope for in a successful thriller.

Original, packed with quirky characters and obviously has a very strong sense of humor about itself

Atkins fleshes out the drama with such surrealist and comic flourishes.

Fun but wobbly stuff.

Martin breaks loose from a string of bland studio comedies with Novocaine, a snarkily amusing indie.
November 16, 2001
An impressive directorial debut, but you wish Atkins had not made his movie's gradual descent seem as inevitable as Frank's.

A screwball film noir with a lot of medium laughs and a few great big ones.
