Numb (2007/Image Entertainment DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Feature: D



The cast of Friends is a group of stars that is beyond played out and no matter how much they are pushed in our faces, nobody cares; especially when they do more lame, idiotic projects that offer zero challenges and make them look worse than ever.  That is exactly what Writer/Director has done Harris Goldberg has done with Matthew Perry in Numb (2007) as a drug-taking neurotic whose life is getting worse.


Mary Steenburgen, William B. Davis (The X-Files) and Kevin Pollack are among those wasted in this feeble exercise in unfunny comedy as Perry plays Perry with no variation or originality.  You watch with zero concern for these one-dimensional bores with less character development than most of today’s sitcoms.  This was made by Fries Entertainment who has survived so many bad projects, I have lost count.  This is one of them and is enough to drive anyone to drugs.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a little soft and plain, with constantly unimaginative shots and flat color.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 Stereo have limited surrounds, dialogue recorded just clearly enough and dull sound mixes in both cases.  Extras include Goldberg’s pointless audio commentary, trailer and making of featurette.
