‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ Trailer: Because Everyone Wants To Go On A Crime Spree With Olivia Wilde

Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 4.18.08 PM

Here’s a setup you have probably heard before:

Man who has the ability to help everyone cannot seem to help himself and falls head-over-heels for a woman far out of his league who teaches him a thing or two about living in the moment. Hijinks ensue, and before either one knows what is going on the pair find themselves in over their head.

This plot has been brought to the big and small screen countless times over the last century, and it’s not hard to understand why. Many of us go through our everyday lives feeling like we have the answers for everyone except ourselves, and that includes the person writing this post. I often feel like I would rather tackle any problem anyone is facing rather than my own, even though I know deep down that is not the best way to live.

In Better Living Through Chemistry, Sam Rockwell portrays the man who seems to have it all figured out (Douglas) and Olivia Wilde – aka the hottest thing to grace the silver screen since Dante’s Inferno – plays the woman who flips his world upside down. Their paths were never meant to cross, but thanks to a lazy pharmacy employee, Douglas finds himself on the steps of a beautiful woman one night at dusk. She’s involved in a world of sex and drugs that is completely foreign to Douglas, but as you will see in the trailer, things do not stay that way for very long. There may even be a murder afoot. You can view the trailer for Better Living Through Chemistry, as well as the film’s poster, below.

Geoff Moore and David Posamentier‘s Better Living Through Chemistry was picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Films earlier this month, and is now slated to hit theaters March 14. Comment below and let us know your first impressions of the trailer.
