Dr. Frank Sangster is a straight-laced dentist who because of one innocent lie, finds his tidy, prosperous life transformed into a comic quagmire of illicit sex, illegal drugs and inexplicable murder in this brilliantly offbeat, bitingly comedic film! Written by
The second time Steve Martin plays a dentist. The first time was his role in "Little Shop of Horrors" as Orin Scrivello, albeit that character was far more "disturbed" than Frank Sangster. See more »

I was lucky enough to get to go to an advance screening of Novocaine (I won tickets). I LOVED it!! I always loved Steve Martin but was really impressed at what a great actor he is as well as comedian! I don't want to give anything away, but this movie totally surprised me, part thriller, part drama part comedy. Nothing like Martin's done before but still very Steve Martin. Helena Bonham Carter plays a role similar to her Fight Club role, very mysterious and brooding. I was also happy to see Laura Dern in a great role. She's different in every movie and is especially strong in this one. The movie is such a mixture of twists and turns that it's hard to rave about it without giving anything away. But I definitely recommend this movie to everyone, perfect for a date or with friends. Even the score is phenomonal too. I can't wait to go again and see it in the theatre the first weekend it comes out.
