A fiercely satirical look at today's culture of spin, this hilarious movie portrays the chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, Nick Naylor, as the hero. Nick makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers. Confronted by health zealots out to ban tobacco and an opportunistic senator who wants to put "poison" labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes while still trying to be a role model to his twelve-year-old son.
Thank You for Smoking features an all-star cast including Aaron Eckhart, Maria Bello, Cameron Bright, Adam Brody, Sam Elliott, Katie Holmes, David Koechner, Rob Lowe, William H. Macy, J. K. Simmons, and Robert Duvall.
