Numb 2007

     Hudson is a Hollywood screenwriter with some success but suddenly after smoking a joint, he sinks into a strange vibe where he can’t physically or emotionally feel his surroundings.  His writing partner, Tom, is disturbed by the sudden changes in Hudson and he advises him to see a psychiatrist.  He is diagnosed with depersonalization, this starts him on the path of one medication after another until he’s on a first name basis with his pharmacist.  He meets Sarah at a sales pitch, she is a beautiful, she actually likes him, believes in him and tries to help him as much as she can. 
     Sometimes you want to hit Hudson and shake him as well.  Could some of his problems be due to thinking a lot about only himself and also a call for attention?  Not very deep with one nutty doctor after another with stereotypical results. 3* (This movie is OK)

92 min, Comedy directed by Harris Goldberg with Matthew Perry, Bob Gunton, Monique Ganderton, Ben Ayres, Helen Shaver, Mary Steenburgen, Lynn Collins.

Note:  Blockbuster 2 ½*, imdb 6.6 out of 10, 54% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
