Thank You For Smoking (2005)

Brilliant. This movie was smart sharp witty cynical…I loved it. Aaron Eckhart plays Nick Naylor a tobacco lobbyist and he is the type of guy who in real life you’d want to just punch him in the face for being such a smart ass and his zealousness to prove you’re wrong because as he says it…if you’re wrong than he must be right. But as a character on screen he is about the most interesting entertaining character you’d watch. I mean seriously you can’t believe the kind of stuff he can come up with…he really is talented in the art of talking and spinning. But you know what…I actually found myself rooting for him…especially with that little battle of words he had with the senator. Despite all the spinning, the movie still manages to make Nick human through his efforts at being a good father to his son.

Oh and the M.O.D squad…that was another brilliant idea…putting them together…some funny scenes there…the lets compare whose products kills more people…of course Nick and his cigarettes had to win. I even love the America Spin feature in the DVD. They threw in clips of American politicians at their best. Bush saying “when we’re talking of war we are actually talking about peace”…or something along that line…I mean…wow …that is just classic. Well back to the movie. I would definitely definitely recommend this movie. This is an excellent watch…especially if you love satires, dark comedies and movies with clever dialogue. Great movie here…watch it.
