As the title says - not painful, just numb
Fine cast, but they couldn't do much with this flat script from writer and first-time director David Atkins. It *seemed* like it should be good, but in the end (as a political pundit once said) there was just no "there" there.

If you get the DVD, watch the "making of" segment for Steve Martin's remark on why he signed on to the film. His deadpan explanation (He had enjoyed working with David Mamet once in the past, heard that Novocaine was directed by someone named David, so he figured he should do it...) is somehow funnier than the rest of the DVD.

Idris Elba Could Be Your Bartender ...

If he wasn't acting, that is. The "Turn Up Charlie" star relates to his character and shares the strangest jobs he's had. Plus, hear what it's like playing a villain in Hobbs & Shaw.
