Thank you for Smoking

This excellent film humorously examines the character and foibles of a likeable yet morally vacuous tobacco company spokesperson.   Rather than wrestling with the contradictions he faces raising a young son while strategizing for increased tobacco use, this character rationalizes his every move as he unapologetically lobbies for more smoking and less clarity. 

The movie pokes fun at both the pro and anti tobacco lobby using clever sarcasm and good performances.  Aaron Eckhart is simply excellent as the smooth talking lobbyist.
