Thank You for Smoking

Thank You for Smoking (2005) is a satire although its title will likely scare away some over-PC types. But those others who are willing to try something different will find just how a clever satirical book can be well interpreted into a movie. The DVD has been on my hold list at the library forever and it was certainly worth the wait. Aaron Eckhart plays Nick Naylor very convincingly and is very enjoyable to watch. The whole family enjoyed this R-rated film (there was some fast sex forwarding I had to do with the kids present and the language is certainly heavily laden with the f word!) and we’ve watched it almost completely twice. The working of Naylor’s son into the movie (not in the book) was a nice touch which certain helped the film. Well worth seeing!
The Charlie Rose interview included in the special features is excellent and interesting viewing including the presence of the author of the original book.
