Thank You For Smoking

Anyone else see this? I finally did, thought it was hysterical. One of the better comedies I've seen in a while.

It basically follows the life of a tobacco lobbyist, brilliantly played by Aaron Eckhart. It's pretty damn funny, how blunt Eckhart and his cronies are about how many people cigarettes kill in one breath, then the zest for which they back the tobacco companies in the next. At the same time, Eckhart is trying to help raise his son as a divorced dad, and takes him on some of his tobacco lobbying exploits with him.

That summation doesn't do it justice. This is a funny movie. Good roles by Maria Bello (quickly becoming one of my favorites), Robert Duvall, Katie Holmes, and Schillinger from "Oz".

Reccomended.

I know. I kept waiting for someone to fire up a smoke.

Good flick ...
