Review
Nick Naylor is a tobacco lobbyist and, damn, he's good at his job, no sleepless nights for old Nicky boy, he takes an idea, spins it until it's close to vomiting, and then runs with the bastardised concept like the devil himself wants a piece of his arse. The pressure however is beginning to mount, not from the anti-tobacco lobbyists, not from the competition and not from his bosses (Nick has a mighty ego), but from the na´ve yet unavoidably honest enquires of his young son. Thank You For Smoking is a witty satire on the nature of PR spin, and that its cynicism lacks bite doesn't take away from the mildly subversive entertainment it provides.
