Synopsis


Thank You for Smoking
The directorial debut from Jason Reitman, the media satire Thank You for Smoking stars Aaron Eckhart as Nick, a man who has turned spinning news and information into a successful career for the tobacco lobby. He plots strategies with his colleagues (Maria Bello and David Koechner) on how to make other dangerous products more appealing to the American public. Nick ends up going to Hollywood with his young son (Cameron Bright) in order to get a movie producer to include characters smoking in his newest film. Nick is kidnapped by a vigilante group concerned about the harmful nature of his product. The cast includes William H. Macy as a Senator who runs on a strong anti-tobacco position, Rob Lowe as the Hollywood bigwig, and Robert Duvall as the king of the tobacco industry. The film is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Christopher Buckley. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Worth Buying

    This was one of the smartest movies i've ever seen. The whole idea of the movie is a lobbyist for "big tobacco" fighting for smoking. This isnt what you might think, its not an anti-smoking or a pro-smoking movie, its a movie about a guy, Nick Naylor, and what he actually does for the company. This movie is funny, smart, and very entertaining, and has a pretty good message in it. One more thing to notice when you watch this movie, nobody smokes one cigarette in the whole movie. I also like how the movie case looks like a pack of smokes.

    Excellent Satire

    This is a funny and intelligent satire that is certainly worth buying. One thing that makes this satire so effective is that it is willing to equally attack both the tobacco companies and the governments attempts to strangle them. This makes you feel like your really watching a good a film and not a soap box film so you can just relax and enjoy it. This is quite possibly the best satirical film of the last decade.
