Thank You For Smoking

Saw this movie yesterday with a friend of mine - pretty good. Directed by Jason Reitman (son of Ivan, who directed, among other things, Ghostbusters) and based on a book by Christopher Buckley (son of William F.). Two kids of famous folks making good.

I think it goes into wide release in the next week or two, and if you're in the mood for something refreshing, you should check it out. It's not often when you see a film like this. It's satirical, and the bad guys are the good guys and vice versa. I know that those things don't sound unusual...but wait until you see the film. And Aaron Eckhart is irrestible in the lead role...he'll charm the pants right off you. But not in a sexual way. Unless you want it to be like that.

Maybe I should start a second career as a movie critic...Rover's Critiques...

Love movies where the bad guys are the good guys .. I live firmly in the wide release range, and will be going to see this one when it opens here this weekend.
