Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
An action-thriller about a writer who takes an experimental drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his mind. As one man evolves into the perfect version of himself, forces more corrupt than he can imagine mark him for assassination. Out-of-work writer Eddie Morra's (Cooper) rejection by girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) confirms his belief that he has zero future.

As the former nobody rises to the top of the financial world, he draws the attention of business mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who sees this enhanced version of Eddie as the tool to make billions.

Obviously I miscalculated a few things.
Eddie! I know you're in there.

ALL SPOILERS AHEAD! WARNING! Who wrote this movie, a 6th grader? Why does the smartest man in the world do such stupid things? Why didn't he think of the best way to make an endless supply of the drug right away? Why didn't he figure out how to get rid of the Russian, instead of giving him what he wanted? Why did he choose the stock market and expose himself to all the attention? He could have made a vast fortune in his apartment, trading on FOREX. If he's so smart, why was he popping pills without knowing the eventual effects on his brain? Why was he running from the guy with the knife, who was following him? The guy knows where lives, that part was plain idiotic. I could go on and on, but the worst was, why would anybody that smart want to be in elective office. He would have far more power being a billionaire. This was a dumb movie, I actually was cheering for him to jump off the roof and my wife was telling me to shut up. It was just another drug movie, except it was a brain drug and not heroin.
