Thank You for Smoking

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Maria Bello, Cameron Bright, Aaron Eckhart, Sam Elliott, Katie Holmes; Director: Jason Reitman; Author: Jason Reitman; Release Date Limited: 03/17/2006; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures

Aaron Eckhart advocates devilishly as tobacco lobbyist/spin surgeon Nick Naylor in Thank You for Smoking, an adaptation of Christopher Buckley’s novel. But director Jason Reitman undercuts the satire by hard-pedaling Nick’s relationship with his son.

EXTRAS In a commentary, Reitman heaps profane abuse on those looking to point out continuity gaffes, and says he introduced himself to Buckley as ”the guy they hired to f— up your book.” In another, he repeats himself, Eckhart quietly watches the film, and David Koechner (gun lobbyist Bobby Jay) tries to liven things up.
