Critic Reviews for The Secret Lives of Dentists
Rudolph's fondness for angular, oblique characterization is ideally suited to the movie's incidental story of sublimated feelings and contradictory impulses.
Domestic scenes with the kids are drawn with letter-perfect naturalism.
There are movies that have a way of hitting you at a certain time in your life, and this study of being married with young children speaks in satisfying ways.
It's funny, honest enough to make you squirm and a film that may make you feel a little bit of the pain on the other side of that shrieking drill.
Rudolph's past work has been spotty, but his stress here on familial sovereignty is moving, as is his direction of the three children.
A faultlessly constructed, artistic look at love, loss and truths we can't ignore.
Audience Reviews for The Secret Lives of Dentists
Not too popular on the fan metre but I actually enjoyed this film.There is a nice natural feel to the characters brimming with honesty.
For Fans Of: Maritial Drama, Hope Davis, Denis Leary Date Night: Nope Art Factor: Low Fun Factor: Low Emotional Factor: Low Intelligence Required: Low Essential Viewing: No Let's get the good stuff about this flick out of the way first. The acting is pretty good in this one. Hope Davis always comes through on anything she appears in so that wasn't a big shock. Denis Leary is kind of like the drunken American-Irish equal of Russell Brand, funny, but very one note. Nothing changes here. Campbell Scott, the "other lead" is one of those guys that you always recognize, but will never bother to learn his name. You all know the type. Good actor, just not memorable enough to remember his name. Oh, the kids in the film, annoying as hell, were good at it. Ok, lets get down to brass tacks. The movie looks awful. The direction and shot selections remind me of a lifetime movie, the kind my mother loves to watch on Sundays. I mean, poor lighting, bad angles, you name it, it happens. The script starts out really edgy and creative, and then ploop, goes right in the shitter. Leary switches roles half way through the movie and starts playing a broke ass version of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt from Fight Club). The movie just turns into one big long dentist pity party with a shit resolution. There was massive potential here. Good cast, creative and original idea, but the follow through just kind of went limp. My advice is to probably avoid unless you just have a love for one of the leads or you love the Lifetime movie network.
Campbell Scott in my opinion is the most underrated actor in Hollywood after seeing this Roger Dodger, Crashing and the Dying Gaul. He and Hope Davis have incredible chemistry throughout this film, but the unsung hero of the movie is Denis Leary, who's sleaziness fits well with the film.
