Better living through chemistry 50's style as Rifftrax iRiffs presents "The Relaxed Wife"- a vintage short from Pfizer. Join riffer mister X (professional smart-ass) as he tackles all this bizarre little film tosses at him:
-see an actor who's mugging makes Jim Carrey seem subtle
-hear pathologically whimsical music that will test your sanity
-endure a rhyming narrator who makes the poetry of Jewel sound like ee cummings
Complete with disembodied arms coming out of desks, a man with a pressure cooker head and a product we never get to see, "The Relaxed Wife" is a trippy prescription drug short that makes you think the makers were on something a little stronger when they made it. Fortunately the snarky, silly and deceptively crass commentary by mister X is the cure for this one.
