Thank you for smoking

You gotta love movie with an establishing shot for a kid's school called "St Euthanasia".
It's so black, so cruel, so right.
Well, right in the sense that the kid's dad is a lobbyist for Big Tobacco and he gives the kiddies a pep talk about how ciggies are not really bad for you.

I recommend this film to anyone and everyone. Satire at its best.

Kiddies can aspire to smoke when they grow up.
Mummies can ogle the leading man.
Daddies can ogle Katie Holmes (although shame on Tom Cruise for censoring the film once he and Katie became enmeshed)

And we can all find out the price of silence - well emphysema does tend to make you rather less chatty.

Kids have to learn to smoke sooner or later – you don’t want them learning it out on the playground, do you??
