During the film, Cooper's character became very ill after consuming wine of which Wilson & # 39; s character tore through with Visine.

The joke may have caused much fun on the big screen, but in reality, eye drops contain a dangerous chemical called tetrahydrozoline.

The chemical constricts blood vessels and can cause breathing difficulties, slow the heartbeat and even bring someone into a coma.

In September, South Carolina Femme Fatale Lana Clayton, 52, was accused of killing her husband, Stephen Clayton, using eye drops after an autopsy found deadly levels of tetrahydrozoline in his system, according to ABC news.

California mechanic Shane Carpenter was accused of poisoning and domestic violence in 2013 after his wife accused him of spitting her drink with eye drops after an argument, according to Urban Policy Institute.

And in 2012, Byron Shull of Cleveland, Ohio, was sentenced to five years in prison for nearly killing his then-84-year-old father with Visine, Fox 8 reported.
