WARNING: Thank You For Smoking Ä“just might make you laugh your head off!Ä” (Maxim). Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco whoÄ’ll fight to protect AmericaÄ’s right to smoke -- even if it kills him -- while still remaining a role model for his 12-year old son. When he incurs the wrath of a senator (William H. Macy) bent on snuffing out cigarettes, NickÄ’s powers of Ä“filtering the truthÄ” will be put to the test. As Nick says, Ä“If you want an easy job, go work for the Red Cross.Ä” With a smokinÄ’ all-star cast that includes Rob Lowe, Maria Bello, Katie Holmes, Adam Brody and Robert Duvall, this Ä“fiendishly funnyÄ” (Good Morning America) comedy will prove seriously addictive.

Cast & Crew
Deliciously nasty, naughty satire.
Literate and smirky in its assault on liars and fools across the map.
To Reitman's credit, the director does not allow Thank You for Smoking to take the turn we would expect.
Enjoyable not only because it shows the duplicity of spinning but because it allows its characters to revel in the joy they experience as contemporary con artists.
A fun, smart film. But you can't help but wish Thank You would bare its fangs a little more.
To watch the film is to feel the delicious discomfort of being seduced by a devilish charmer.
A smart-aleck satire with something on its mind is always welcome.
