Now, it is common knowledge that smoking is extremely dangerous for your health, thus making it a taboo, so making a satirical statement of this subject is downright easy, as shown in "Thank You for Smoking".Nick Naylor is man who has a very peculiar and controversial job: A Tobacco lobbyist. This job has provided some conflict in Nicks life but he still is loyal to its work and is really good at it. As someone who likes satire, and loves learning about society throughout time (thus one of many reasons I adore "Mad Men"), I approached Jason Reitmans first feature length film with high expectations of being a well-made social commentary (the ultimate point of a satire), but unfortunately I was disappointed. "Thank You for Smoking" counts with solid comedic acting, with the best being Aaron Eckhart as a charismatic modern Don Draper like character; a great comedic timing, jokes that mostly get a laugh out of you, good cinematography (which also reminded me of the first three seasons of "Mad Men", due to its orangey executive look), Reitmans directing feels like a combination of your average quirky indie comedy director with an Edgar Wright editing style, sometimes the manipulative nature of the dialog works, a hilarious "Fight Club" like narration, a big entertaining value, Nick Naylors relationships feel genuine, a well-crafted moral ambiguity, and I love that its ending doesn't go to safe territory and sticks to Naylors character. With all that being said, this film doesn't completely work because of two reasons: Reitman is so focused on the manipulative nature of the concept and the jokes that it just feels like he is just making fun of everyone that's represented in this film instead of making a social commentary, and the script desperately needed some focus, as the whole film feels like you are watching a handful of sitcom episodes, sure they may be funny but are irrelevant to the overall attempt of a story this film has."Thank You for Smoking" has its moments of well-made satire thanks to its intentionally manipulative and hilarious dialog, but overall it is a half made satire as it lacks a statement and focus. If you want a good laugh or want a smarter than average comedy, this is the film for you, but if you expect a satire that could live up to its title, then you will be disappointed.

Stuart K (au) wrote: Directed by John Schlesinger, who after nearly 2 decades of making quite serious minded films, decided he wanted to try his hand at making a comedy. He was pitched this idea by producer Don Boyd (The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (1980) and Aria (1987)), which was a satire on American commercialism and America's love with the open road. Some of it works, and some of it doesn't In the sleepy Florida town of Ticlaw, the town's mayor is dismayed when Kirby T. Calo (William Devane) is dismayed when they learn a nearby freeway being built will have no turn off to Ticlaw, even though they paid the road builders to do so. When that doesn't happen, they paint the town pink to attract tourists, and though various circumstances, visitors to Florida from all over America end up in Ticlaw. They include elderly couple Carol (Jessica Tandy) and Sherm (Hume Cronyn); a cocaine dealing hitchhiker (Daniel Stern), apspiring children's author Duane Hansen (Beau Bridges) and two nuns (Geraldine Page and Deborah Rush). It's a very silly film which includes a flyover getting blown up, an elephant on water ski's and a whole town painted pink. Understandably, this made it a very expensive film for it's day, and no thanks to poor promotion, it was a massive flop. It hurt Schlesinger's career for a few years, but it's not that bad, just a mess.
