“The Answer Man”

The Stony Brook Film Festival opened last night with the comedy “The Answer Man.” Not a film about teeth (except for two ugly veneers on Lauren Graham’s central incisors – wouldn’t I love to replace them for her), but I loved the film for the subplot of the female chiropractor struggling to start a practice. She puts up fliers in the local bookstore, and – in a desperate mood – dresses her receptionist in a vertebral column costume to hand out fliers in front of her storefront office. Hysterical! Sort of like a dentist dressing up as an oversized molar tooth. Not something I can see myself doing! Tonight look out for the vampire comedy “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Undead” (see my blog entry, “The Sight of Fangs” about vampire teeth).
