Second Time Around: Thank You For Smoking

Thank You For Smoking
Directed by Jason Reitman
Released April 14, 2006

Aaron Eckhart finds a fanastic role as tobacco lobbyist in this witty, very tongue-in-cheek comedy. The film is set up very strategically, and each scene is hilariously funny and well-produced. A film about a man advocating smoking cigarettes would hardly be expected to be as good as this, and Jason Reitman's screenplay, as well as Eckhart's lead performance, was criminally robbed of an Oscar nomination. This film is excellent and certainly worth seeing. Watch for fun bit performances by Adam Brody and Rob Lowe.
