Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 on TV talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood super-agent to promote smoking in movies.

Nick's newfound notoriety attracts the attention of both tobacco's head honcho and an investigative reporter for an influential Washington daily. Nick says he is just doing what it takes to pay the mortgage, but the increased scrutiny of his son and a very real death threat may force him to think differently.

Thank You for Smoking features an all star cast including Aaron Echkart, Maria Bello, Cameron Bright, Adam Brody, Sam Elliott, Katie Holmes, David Koechner, Rob Lowe, William H. Macy, J.K. Simmons, and Robert Duvall.

This Newmarket Shooting Script® Book includes:

  • Introduction by Jason Reitman
  • Foreword by Christopher Buckley
  • Complete Shooting Script
  • Color still photographs
  • Cast and crew credits

Review:

"A very smart and funny movie." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Thank You for Smoking mines comic gold from a topic that's no laughing matter. This film will make you laugh till it hurts." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Review:

"Slick, stylish and sharp-witted, Thank You for Smoking is an entertaining satire on contemporary morality that skewers corporate spin culture, political correctness and that most rhetorical of concepts in Bush's America, personal freedom." David Rooney, Variety

Review:

"The razor-sharp satire Thank You for Smoking is the wittiest dark comedy of the year thus far. It has appeal to all sides of the political spectrum. Thank You for Smoking is that quirky and intelligent rarity that elicits wry smiles and hearty laughs alike." Claudia Puig, USA Today
