Hudson Milbank is a successful Hollywood screenwriter who suddenly and strangely finds himself without any emotional feelings. He tries doctor after doctor and shrink after shrink, but nothing works. The Golf Channel, lesbian exercise classes and a dizzying variety of pills get him through the day, but don't quite solve his problem. His writing partner tries everything to get him back to normal, but it's not until Hudson meets Sara that he finds a real motivation to get better and to actually start feeling again. From the writer of Deuce Bigalow, comes NUMB, a romantic comedy following an unusual man looking for strange love.

Errors in geography:
After Hudson steals the sneakers, he is shown running down a brick walkway past a sandwich sign for a nail salon. The phone number on the bottom of the sign has a 604 area code which is for the lower mainland of British Columbia in Canada, not for the Los Angeles area, which the story is set in.
Don't do this. That guy can't make you swear as much as I can.
i just saw this film at the Austin film festival. I had no idea what to
expect and i was delighted with the results. Mathew Perry delivers a
fantastic understated performance. I really wasn't a fan of his and
when I heard he was in it, truthfully i wanted to see it less. But i've
changes my tune completely, l'm a definite fan now, he sunk his teeth
into this role and really let go of his usual bag of comedic tricks.
The writer/director knows what he is doing. He injected just enough,
just just enough comedy into the movie to make the disturbing and hard
to handle subject matter palatable. I really found the movie a delight
and the the whole theatre was laughing in agreement with me. Go see it,
its really something!
