    The Top 5 Pharmacist Movies of All Time

    Our list of the best pharmacists ever to appear on the silver screen.


    5. Doug Varney, Better Living Through Chemistry

    Doug Varney is a bored pharmacist. He lives in a small town, working under the thumb of his overbearing father-in-law, stuck in a loveless marriage with a rebellious kid, working in a thankless job. That all changes when he has to make a delivery to another women caught in a loveless marriage. She convinces Doug to “get high on [his] own supply,” taking him through a whirlwind of accidental death, running from the authorities, and a host of other problems.

    What pharmacists can learn:

    Some days, working pharmacy can seem tedious. Long shift hours, overbearing bosses, thin margins, all of those add up to a difficult job. But as this movie proves, abandoning all of that isn’t quite the answer. What you do matters!
