Thank You For Smoking


Thank You For Smoking is one of the funniest films I’ve seen for a long while – with added bonus of the main character being a PR guy. As the IMDB puts it: " A satirical comedy that follows the machinations of Big Tobacco’s chief
spokesman, Nick Naylor, who spins on behalf of cigarettes while trying
to remain a role model for his twelve-year-old son."

The dialogue is priceless – check out some of these gems:

Kid #3:
My Mommy says smoking kills.

Nick Naylor:
Oh, is your Mommy a doctor?

Kid #3:
No.

Nick Naylor:
A scientific researcher of some kind?

Kid #3:
No.

Nick Naylor:
Well then she’s hardly a credible expert, is she?

Nick Naylor:
My point is that you have to think for yourself. If your parents told
you that chocolate was dangerous would you take their word for it?
[Children say no]

Nick Naylor:
Exactly! So perhaps instead of acting like sheep when it comes to cigarettes you should find out for yourself.

Joey Naylor:
Why did you tell that reporter all your secrets?

Nick Naylor:
You’re too young to understand.

Joey Naylor:
Mom says it’s because you have dependency issues and it was all just a
matter of time before you threw it all away on some tramp.

Nick Naylor:
Well, that’s one theory.
