A small town pharmacist’s uneventful life is turned inside out when a chance encounter with a lonely trophy wife turns into a walk on the wild side in the murderously funny dark comedy, Better Living Through Chemistry. Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell) is the model of suburban respectability-until the night he delivers a prescription to the home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). Gorgeous, seductive and multiply addicted, Elizabeth eagerly introduces Doug to extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedroom behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store.

"The end result of this stoned-cold picnic is both haphazardly successful and somewhat disappointing, but it's worth seeing, thanks enormously to the tremendous charisma of Sam Rockwell."

- Rex Reed, New York Observer

"Rockwell's presence and performance raises it to another level. He accounts for at least one star of my review."

- Ken Hanke
