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.

Some fathers are Firemen, some fathers are Policemen, a few fathers are Spin-Doctors. This movie is the tale of one spin-doctor, Nick Naylor, spokesperson for the Academy of Tobacco Studies. As many in the PR/advertising industry have found, the harder the challenge the move ingenious and talented the players become. 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. Nick's newfound notoriety attracts the attention of both tobacco's head honcho (Duvall) ... (more)

"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. "

2018: Films I've Watched in January (24 movies items)

"First Watched 1/3/2018 I really loved this movie the dialogue is popping, the scenes are memorable, and best of all it presents the satire it tackles in more of a morally gray area. Choosing to let the audience see both the promise land and underbelly of both avenues without making up their minds for them. I really like films that don't talk down to their audience and instead think independently to decided which is the better right or the lesser of two evils. Seriously the performances are "

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: November & Dec. (18 movies items)

"December 8 "My Mommy says smoking kills." "Oh, is your Mommy a doctor?" "No." "A scientific researcher of some kind?" "No." "Well, then she's hardly a credible expert, is she?" Out of all the satires I've seen, this one might be one of the best. It's not only hilarious, but it is a satire that doesn't really take sides and tackles the issue in so many clever ways. I also loved how they took Aaron Eckhart's character, one that would normally be seen as unlikeable and make him into an oddly li"
