Trying to locate the name of a relatively recent movie: The plot line as I remember it from the ad, was that an ordinary Joe, accidental takes a "pill" that causes him to be able to use a large percentage of his brain, in a conscious state, and makes him the smartest man on the planet. The person who made the pill, takes umbrage, and becomes the antagonist.
I've been trying out all the permutations of key worhds on IMDB to no joy. Any help appreciated.
popcorn usually helps.
The irony of this is profound. :o)

Whenever I can’t remember the name of a movie I try to remember who is in it..if I can’t remember their name I look up a movie I know they were in, find their name in the credits on imdb and find the other movie. In this case I remember it was a guy in the movie The Hangover-Bradley Cooper-the movie you are looking for is Limitless.
Limitless. Good movie...
I thought I knew this for a second, then I forgot. :-D
I liked it as well.
I did take Umbridge but it was consensual
I bought some Ginko pills to improve my memory. Except I keep forgetting to take them.
I get different reaction from people who saw it. Some say it’s pro-drug because he still used it til the end. Others say no..weird. There’s no general consensus about the movie.

I take it you didn’t take the pill?
His Mother didn’t take the pill.
