‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ Trailer: Olivia Wilde Gets Skanky in Sam Rockwell’s Latest Excuse to Dance


Whenever it’s announced that America’s sweetheart Sam Rockwell is going to be appearing in a new movie, there’s always one important question that immediately springs into any sane mind: “Is he going to get a chance to show off his sweet dance moves in this one?”

Well, whoever cut together the trailer for Rockwell’s latest starring vehicle, Better Living Through Chemistry, was wise enough to help advertise the film by answering that all-important question, and the answer is yes, yes, a thousand times yes! We’ve got another movie where Rockwell shakes his booty on our hands, and it is glorious.

Okay, that’s not entirely the truth. We only get a brief enough glimpse of moves being busted out to confirm the dancing, but we can assume that it’s going to be glorious. Past evidence supports it. Click through to see the proof for yourself, as well as a bunch of stuff involving Jean Ralphio being irresponsible, Olivia Wilde having loose morals, and—what the heck—let’s throw in a mega-cut of a bunch of scenes where Rockwell has danced in the past for your efforts.

The co-writers/directors of Better Living Through Chemistry, Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, are newcomers, so it’s hard to really judge what kind of movie we’re going to be walking into with this one. But the trailer looks funny enough, right? And they seem to have good taste in actors. The film is all set for a March 14 release date, so we’ll know for sure then.

Now here, as promised, is that montage of scenes where Rockwell dances. Oh, to be alive in the age of Youtube. Does sentience get any better than this? Most likely it does not.
