Certain movies make things look so fun and appealing, right? This exclusive clip, from the upcoming “Better Living Through Chemistry,” should come with a warning much like the ones legally required at pharmacies: No amount of pills will make you look like Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell, nor are they likely to make you have as much fun as they appear to be having in this glimpse at the film.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s take look into the pharmaceutically enhanced lifestyle of Doug (Rockwell) and Elizabeth (Wilde). Doug’s a ho-hum pharmacist, rocking a lab coat and a snooze-worthy routine, until he meets Elizabeth, the recreational pill-popper trophy wife client with whom he begins an affair, as well as a nice little medical habit.
Check out the clip from the flick, in which Doug discovers the joys of frankensteining different combos of drugs for his own personal pleasure, heightening both his sexy lunch breaks with Liz and his boring work days. (No word on whether that heightening involves any of Rockwell busting out any of his signature dance moves, but we have a feeling that it’s highly likely.)
“Better Living Through Chemistry,” which also stars Jane Fonda and Michelle Monaghan, hits limited release March 14.

Olivia Wilde will be making guest appearance in an episode during the 4th season of the TV series “Portlandia”.
Olivia Wilde joins the State of Female Justice panel to discuss the responsibilities of celebrities towards advancing social justice and the portrayals of women in the media.
Actress Olivia Wilde seems to have worked non-stop over the course of the past decade, and her recent performances in Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” suggest there’s a whole lot more to come; you can see her next in “Better Living Through Chemistry,” a dark comedy out March 14th.
The daughter of journalists, Wilde has retained her candor and curiosity despite the Hollywood glare, and she brings a hands-on pragmatism to her philanthropic work. She sits on the board of Artists for Peace and Justice, an educational organization serving the poorest neighborhoods in Haiti, and she recently launched Conscious Commerce, a digital enterprise which encourages shoppers to deploy their dollars for the greater good. Here, she shares her powerful definition of empathy and weighs the meaning of success.
