Thank You For Smoking (3 stars)

Big Tobacco spin doctor Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart) is on a mission to make the country forget the dangers of his product. Rallying for the cause, he works to promote smoking in the movies and hush former employees who bad-mouth cigarettes, all the while trying to remain a role model for his young son. Maria Bello, Katie Holmes, Robert Duvall and William H. Macy co-star in Jason Reitman’s razor-sharp satire based on Christopher Buckley’s novel.

Geoff’s Comments: This was a quirky but very funny movie. It’s of those that you have to be in the right mood for, similar to films like ‘The Royal Tennenbaums’ and ‘Election’ or the subtlety of ‘Arrested Development’. But if you just go with the flow, you’ll be laughing out loud a some of the one liners and deadpan deliveries.
