Thank You for Smoking

I thought Thank You for Smoking was going to be some sort of scathing satire, but instead it was just an okay, blackly comic look at the life of a man whose job it is to, effectively, promote smoking and to downplay its harmful side effects.

The cast was good (Aaron Eckhart, Maria Bello, William H Macy, Robert Duvall), and the script was witty. I laughed. I seem to recall I laughed quite a bit. But ultimately the film has not stayed with me. Hardly at all. I feel a bit "so what?" about it all.

Fun while it lasted, but very forgettable. 58 out of 100
