0.5 out of 10 Waste of time
Darragh from Wicklow, 12 Jan 2011
Terrible film, long and drawn out, nothing really happens apart a for a husband suspecting his wife is having an affair and basically does nothing about it, doesn't confront her or anything. I was expecting the inclusion of Dennis Leary to at least add some sort of comic relief which he didn't. The was no tension, no big drama and no twist. If you want to watch a film about two people put their children to bed and feed them breakfast then this is for you. More fun watching paint dry. Avoid!

1.5 out of 10 Long...............
helen from Dublin, 04 Jul 2012
Nothing much to write home about. Not much happens actually and when you get to the end you ask outloud "IS THAT IT?" The most exciting things in it are in the main character's imagination! Good acting throughout and the three daughters are adorable especially the wee one!

3.5 out of 10 Good drama
Ciaran from Dublin, 29 Jun 2007
Solid family drama in which a husband goes increasingly into himself and pals with his imaginary buddy (a straight Dennis Leary) due to issues with his marriage. Definitely worth the watch if you like good solid drama.

What's it about....
Based on Jane Smiley's novel, The Age of Grief, Secret Lives Of Dentists is an honest but sympathetic look at the strains of modern marriage. David Hurst (Campbell Scott) is a disillusioned small-time dentist who suspects his wife is having an affair after seeing her kiss a mystery man. Preferring to brood he begins to imagine conversations with an angry patient (Denis Leary). As his grief leads to a variety of bizarre acts, violence never seems far away
