You&#39;ll need to inhale, then exhale slowly and relax before plunging into the world of Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), lobbyist and bag man for the Tobacco Industry. The laughs are some of the best abdominal exercise I&#39;ve ever had at the movies. Thank You for Smoking is far and away the best satire to come out of Hollywood in years. The last attempt I remember was WAG THE DOG. This film is far better at true satire, its wit biting do-gooders and do-badders alike. It has been too long since Satire and the Politically Incorrect Sense of Humor have been allowed to point out the absurd in all sides of an issue. If you don&#39;t laugh out loud, your sense of humor has become a casualty of malpractice by the Doctors of Spin and the Nursemaids of Political Correctness.<br/><br/>Young Jason Reitman&#39;s direction and screenplay are deft and light. He is never heavy-handed, or worse, condescending (as may have happened more than once in WAG THE DOG). Based on a novel by Christopher Buckley (the son of William F. Buckley), the script is the star here. The double, triple, and sometimes quadruple entendres are spoken conversationally by a star-studded ensemble cast, who clearly revel in great material and great lines. Every reviewer opines that this will be Aaron Eckhart&#39;s break-out role. With his Dudley-Do-Right face and &quot;that guy who always gets the girl----- on crack&quot; charm and glibness, his Nick Naylor is the ultimate purveyor of the spin doctor&#39;s prescription: &quot;the means justify the end&quot;.<br/><br/>The casting director should be congratulated in the same breath as the director. Rob Lowe as the &quot;genius&quot; behind Hollywood &quot;EGO&quot;, a consultant firm which helps raise financing for movies with strategic product placement, is note-perfect in a &quot;small role&quot;. With William H. Macy, the Vermont Senator who takes on the tobacco industry, Maria Bello, a fellow Merchant of Death lobbyist, and Robert Duvall, the &quot;Captain&quot; of this particular industry--- the cast is jaw-dropping, and sublimely funny. Katie Holmes, pre-TomKat, is gorgeous, seductive, and completely believable as the reporter who stops at nothing to get her story.<br/><br/>Nick Naylor&#39;s relationship with his son is the lens which focuses Nick on his own behavior. Even that relationship is not treated as a cliché, or completely reverently by the satirist, who remains true to the last frame to the goal of letting the air out of our self-righteousness. It is a breath of fresh air. I not only recommend it, I intend to see it again.

EDITED to omit reported &#39;spoilers&#39;. And by spoilers I don&#39;t mean the &quot;Bruce Willis is dead&quot; type, but &quot;Bruce Willis is bald&quot; types. *sigh*<br/><br/>Some jobs are harder than others but Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), tobacco industry spokesman, handles his with effortless skill. Along with two other spokespeople for the alcohol- and firearms industry respectively, he is part of the self-appointed M.O.D. squad (&quot;Merchants of Death&quot;) whose main objective is to talk. To BS. To spin. To confuse and convince their opponent, and charm their audience. A job of such nature naturally requires a certain moral flexibility, and with smooth-talk and sex appeal, it is apparent that Nick is incredibly gifted in this area.<br/><br/>He goes on TV-shows, verbally battles U.S. senators, deems the Cancer Research Foundation &quot;arseholes&quot; ? all the while trying to set an example for his 10-year-old son. This is naturally very difficult, doing what he does. So as Big Tobacco (for whom he is a lobbyist) launches a campaign to reinstate the &quot;cool smoking&quot; image into mainstream Hollywood, and sends Nick to work a producer for the proper product-placement, Nick decides to bring his son along for the ride, to see &quot;how daddy works&quot; in hopes to bond with him.<br/><br/>Good satires are hard to come by, but Reitman&#39;s &quot;Thank You For Smoking&quot; is so wet with sarcasm and dripping with humour that it is impossible not to enjoy. It navigates the fast-paced industry, the art of talking and spoofs the anti-smoking camp with their chiché &quot;cancer-sick boy in a wheelchair&quot; front (as seen in the opening scene of the film), and it explores the moral flexibility of Americans, without preaching too much in doing so. Only once does it fall prey to predictable moral messages, as when Nick starts reevaluating his work and has moral qualms following his kidnapping by an anti-smoking group, only to swoop down into tongue-and-cheek mode again and return twice as biting ? and twice as funny.<br/><br/>Although the film is evenly peppered with fun one-liners and perfect delivery from its cast, the best scene is when the M.O.D. squad are at their usual restaurant hang-out at the end of the day and brag to each other and argue over whose business kills the most people per year. Nick: &quot;How many alcohol-related deaths per day? 100,000? That&#39;s what... 270 a day? Wow. 270 people, tragedy. Excuse me if I don&#39;t exactly see terrorists getting excited about kidnapping anyone from the alcohol-industry.&quot; Maria Bello who plays the detached, funny Moderate Spokeswoman for alcohol has great in-your-face aptitude and attitude, &quot;That&#39;s stupid arguing.&quot; Aaron Eckhart is also hilarious throughout in a shady businessman way (I now have a major crush on him). Out of all the cast, only Nick&#39;s little kid Joe chokes on the well-written lines.<br/><br/>In fact, even the cinematography is well-crafted in the film... just the way a scene cuts to another deserves credit, opening with a rapid-fire ironic note. Speaking of which, &quot;Thank You&quot;&#39;s opening montage of cigarette packages as credits is a stroke of genius on Reitman&#39;s part. So are the various casting choices ? the amount of respected actors that have been crammed into supporting roles in impressive (Robert Duvall, Sam Elliot, William H. Macy) and give rise to an almost familiar and &quot;feel-good&quot; tone in the film. <br/><br/>That said, I wouldn&#39;t call this &quot;laugh-out-loud worthy&quot; exactly and I didn&#39;t care for the ending but it is clear that a lot of thought has been put into Thank You For Smoking ? every line is a well-articulated kick up the arse to something and delivered by the bucket-load. A very enjoyable little satire.<br/><br/>8 out of 10

Just saw this as it premiered in Toronto - awesome cast, very funny dialog, and more than skin deep. First time director does a nice job - and the opening credits are noteworthy. RECOMMENDED. Pokes fun at the smoking industry (and lobbyists), but at others as well, and its hard to disagree with the sharp satire. Rob Lowe&#39;s small role is priceless, the casting was perfect across the board. Nick Naylor&#39;s (Eckart) relationship with his son is center and keeps some genuine qualities through all the laughs. My friend and I both rated this near the top or at the top of the 7 films we saw in Toronto last weekend. Not sure what its distribution / release schedule is yet, as there was still some debate over who had actually purchased the rights to it. Eckart in person came across as very genuine and is also in another great upcoming movie - Neverwas.
