BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY is a comedy drama in which a small town pharmacist's life changes when he embarks on an affair.

Language

One use of very strong language ('c**t'), which is delivered without aggression about a person who is not present at the time, and around fourty uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There is also some milder bad language, including uses of 'shit', 'dick', 'screw', 'ass', 'damn', 'hell', 'God' and 'Jesus'. There is a rude finger gesture.

Sex

Three strong sex scenes, including sight of sexual thrusting and some nudity. There are strong visual and verbal sex references, including to sexual arousal, sexual positions, oral sex, and sexually transmitted infections.

Drugs

Several scenes in which prescription drugs are misused, in order to create concoctions intended to improve sexual and athletic performance. There is no useful instructional detail. Although the drug misuse is presented in a comic fashion, the potential dangers are highlighted, in particular when a character is found dead following an overdose, and when a Drugs Enforcement Agency agent explains that the misuse of prescription drugs causes even more deaths than illegal drugs.
