NOT a comedy,

This review is from: Novocaine [DVD]  (DVD)
I decided to buy this dvd based on the only review at the time which described this film as witty and comical.It is neither.I love Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,The Man with Two Brains and The Jerk and rather hoped this would be in the same genre.This film is a slow moving thriller of sorts with Helena Bonham Carter playing a weirdly dressed drug addict,nothing new there then,and Steve Martin as a successful dentist who has an affair with her and gets framed for the murder of her violent brother.Steve Martin is a brilliant comedian and should really stick with comedy.He's not a good enough actor to carry off a serious role.Very disappointed,dont bother!
