So far during the Monday Movie Meme, we’ve covered smoking scenes and people injecting themselves with one substance or another. Thus, the theme for this week -- which is heavily influenced by allergy season that has reared its stuffy head, by the way – comes as no surprise: Magic Pills.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring scenes where people are taking pills. This can include just about any type of pill -- prescription drugs, over-the-counter vitamins or related items, and drugs that are not on the market. Any type of medicine or recreational items is good to go, so long as they it is used in pill form during the movie(s) you pick. Here are my selections for this week’s Magic Pills theme.
A struggling writer pays a dangerous price for popping pills that enable him to be all he can be, in this psychological thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro.
Bad Boys II
Ecstasy is flowing like a river – in nightclubs, “fat doughs”(watch the movie, already!) and on boats affiliated with Klan members, in this action film starring Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and Joe Pantoliano.
And here I thought I could come up with more titles but, unfortunately, my mind draws a blank beyond these two aforementioned flicks.
What movies have YOU seen that include scenes where people are taking pills?
