Thank you for smoking by Jason Reitman, 2005 (R)

with Aaron Eckhart (The Rum Diary, Rabbit Hole), Maria Bello (The Cooler, Beautiful Boy, Payback), Cameron Bright (Prometheus), Adam Brody, Sam Elliott (Did You Hear About The Morgans?), Katie Holmes (Mad Money), David Koechner (Get Smart), William H. Macy (The sessions, The cooler) J.K. Simmons (Contraband, The Words, Up in The Air, Young Adult), Robert Duvall (Argo, Jack Reacher)
From the director of Up in The Air and Young Adult

On a mission to make the country forget the dangers of smoking, Big Tobacco spin doctor Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart) promotes his product in the movies and hushes those who bad-mouth cigarettes, all the while trying to remain a role model to his young son. Maria Bello, Katie Holmes, Robert Duvall and William H. Macy co-star in Jason Reitman's razor-sharp satire, which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Screenplay.

By the same director as "Young Adult" and "Up in the air", probably his best work to my opinion. The cast is so good it is almost expected that the movie would be as well. The sense of humor is creepy, it opposites everything American mentality think to have evolved to, with some sort of associated puritanism. To the point where it is hardly possible to make joke about it or allowed to have this vice from time to time, just as one would have a drink and know that drinking is not the best thing for your health. Anyway, it is very funny, intelligent, I just can't get over the scene with Maria Bello and David Koechner, this evil circle making fun of "Weak America".
