Thank You for This Movie

Thank you for Smoking was a surprise gem that has a unique approach to combining humor and real world issues at the expense of the "good guys." Aaron Eckhart brought life to the argument with his well versed dialogue and a persuasiveness that made me understand why Big Tobacco is so successful. A must see.

Nick is at the top of his game, but has to tackle changing public opinion, cancer... read more

I didn't think much of the adverts for this film when it came on to Sky Movies but the boredom of being unemployed was enough for me to give it a try.

I was thoroughly impressed though. It was nothing like I imagined it and every point made was worthy of recognition. As stated already, Naylor is definitely a hero in noctine armour.

Description: In a role Aaron Eckhart seems born to play, the hero of "Thank You for Smoking" is Nick Naylor, chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, who makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers in today's neo-puritanical culture. Confronted by health zealots out to ban tobacco and an opportunistic senator (Macy) who wants to put poison labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes on TV talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote smoking in movies.

"^ Despite all those "Know the Truth" ads, The Surgeon General's warnings on all the packaging, all the vaping and patch options, the constantly accumulating high taxes, and my deeply yellowed teeth, I'm still up to four packs of Malboro Black Menthols a day. So, yeah, you're welcome, Big Tobacco Companies. You're welcome. "

" Notes: This is Jason Reitman's first movie and, so far, it is, in my opinion, his best one. I don't know about 'Juno' but back in 2007 , it was a huge success, the biggest indie feature of the year, nominated for several Academy Awards. For Roger Ebert, it was even the best movie of the year. However, even though I did like it, I didn't think it was really mind-blowing.

"Re-watch - Dec. 3rd I've been wanting to revisit Thank You for Smoking for a while now, so I figured this month it was time. It's smart, funny, and solidly entertaining. It never quite crosses the line of greatness but thanks to a strong ensemble cast and clever writing it rises above mediocrity. "
