I think they classify these types of movies as political satire right? The movie, which pokes fun at both sides of the issue, is based on a book, with the same title, by Christopher Buckley. Here is a brief little bit on the movie:
Nick Naylor, chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers in today’s neo-puritanical culture. Confronted by health zealots and an opportunistic senator, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes, but he begins to think about how his work makes him look in the eyes of his young son Joey.
You can view a trailer of the movie at – http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox_searchlight/thankyouforsmoking/
Beware…if you’re sick of seeing Katie Holmes, don’t watch the trailer or the movie.
Question: Do you think this movie is a recruiting tool to get more people smoking?
