Hello again, dear readers. It’s the last week of January, and that means that we’re almost halfway through the early-year movie doldrums. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at this spring’s upcoming comedy-drama Better Living Through Chemistry.
Premise: Straight-laced pharmacist Douglas Varney’s (Sam Rockwell) uneventful life spirals out of control when he starts an affair with Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde), a seductive trophy wife customer who takes him on a joyride involving sex, drugs, and possibly murder.
My take: As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, there have been several times in my history of writing this column that I’ve featured a movie which I hadn’t even heard of before seeing the trailer in question. Such is the case with this week’s subject, Better Living Through Chemistry. Before anyone gets too excited, the film has nothing to do »
