Small town pharmacist Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell) is the model of suburban respectability. That is, until the night he delivers a prescription to the swanky home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). Gorgeous, seductive and addicted, Elizabeth eagerly introduces Doug to extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedroom behavior and the illicit pleasures of the prescription drugs he has access to in his store.

Unappreciated at home by his domineering wife Kara (Michelle Monaghan) who spends so much time working out at the gym that she has no time for Doug or his needs, the pharmacist also has to cope with his troubled son Ethan and his annoying employees at the drugstore he bought from his insufferable father-in-law. He surprises himself by embarking on an exhilarating drug-and-alcohol fueled affair with the most glamorous woman he has ever met. But his extracurricular activities quickly send his life spinning out of control when a routine DEA audit reveals serious discrepancies in his inventory.
