Light, funny, extra star for the supplements

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Had actually wanted to see this and find out what Parminder might be doing outside of ER, then as a bonus see what Linda Hamilton might be attempting outside of the colonies here. In the end, it actually was not that disappointing, and Mr. Fletcher got a chance to carry a comedy.
The story follows Fletcher's dental surgeon character as he wades through a loveless life, often at the mercy of his wretched step mom, all while being helped by his beautiful assistant (Parminder). Linda Hamilton (not sure how to take this role - as she had a horrible accent and appeared to be completely lost) plays a clueless private eye that lusts after every hot woman in the film. The dentist discovers his dreams are coming true (literally and figuratively) and decides to try and change the apparent outcomes as they occur, all whilst Hamilton stumbles along to assist.
The scenes are almost skit oriented and usually corny, but have some funny visuals, and even an honest feel to them at times. Dexter feels like a leading comedy actor here, so maybe this will be his calling. I would have given this an average rating but the DVD makers hit my weak spot and put an hour-long Soultanakis-like documentary on it. This actually turned out to be better than the film; a thorough logistical depiction of making an independent production. Then they added the three deleted scenes that were rightfully trimmed from the movie. Putting two proper supplements on there gave it another star; I always love to see just the right amount and properly produced segments on a DVD instead of the large volumes of fluff they put out sometimes.
A fun watch as a rental, probably an owner for the Parminder fans as she appears to have nothing else going on right now."
