    Tobacco industry lobbyist Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart) has a seemingly impossible task: promoting cigarette smoking in a time when the health hazards of the activity have become too plain to ignore. Nick, however, revels in his job, using argument and twisted logic to place, as often as not, his clients in the positions of either altruistic do-gooders or victims. A smart and funny movie which does not hide the truth, but filters it.

    My GF and I just watched "Thank You for Smoking" (don't know why it took us so long). The movie is excellent! The casting was amazing and the story line just keeps you interested the entire time. If you are looking for an entertaining movie that contains humor, wit and a substantial amount of "B.S." then Thank You for Smoking is just the movie.

    Great movie - just saw it over the weekend. The hero is a lobbyist for the tobacco industry, who travels around bribing, spinning, and taking on the nannies and do-gooders of society. You can't help but cheer for him. This film makes you laugh and think, which is more than I can say for most comedies out there.

    I always love over-the-top satire, and comedies that make you think are so rare these days. This movie is easy on the eyes, immensely entertaining, and yes, thought provoking.

    I find it, somewhat, uncomfortable that Jason Reitman primarily gets recognized for Juno. Not because it wasn't a great movie, but because this one was too. I might even say it was funnier. Either way, it's worth the watch. If nothing else, the comical portrayal of big tobaccos publicist is hilarious, but only because it's so believable.
