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.
