    Have you guys seen Novacaine? It stars Steve Martin and Helena Bonham Carter. It's out on DVD and I thought the movie was okay. I'd rate it about B/B-. There's a extra feature on the DVD that talks about forensic dentistry that was really interesting. Anyways, you guys should check it out and let me know what you think.

    I was in blockbuster and saw the movie "the dentist" It's suppose to be some horror movie about a dentist and what he does to his patients teeth..haha, I did not rent it, but if you're into something really stupid, I suppose it's worth a shot.

    Tal,

    I just saw Novocaine tonight, I don't know if I liked it or not!? I enjoyed the dental langual, but I'm not sure if I like whole plot thing! It made me wonder.....

    what if I meet a patient that I'm attracted to and she's attracted to me, what would I do? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    doing "it" in the chair....hmmmmm...interesting? <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    At any rate, I do recommend for you guys to check out the movie, let us know your feedback!

    :cool:

    TAL444 - Novocaine was, well, a pretty typical Steve Martin flick (aka not life changing) It did make me wonder if i should really jump into this whole dental thing or if i'd be better off moving to france to be a writer (i think i'll stick with dentistry - lol)

    Oh - the x-ray scenes were pretty groovey!

    note to self: try psychological testing for future hygenists <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Quite possibly the worst movie ever. I'm actually a Steve Martin fan and I'm kinda wondering why he ever did this flick. Oh well.

    Whole Nine Yards is the funniest movie I've seen that portrays a dentist.
