Pure unadulterated witBy MikeHuntt from wirral , 21 Jun 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]In brief, The film follows the goings on of Nick Naylor, the spin doctor of big tobbaco as he argues and debates with anti smoking politicians and activists.
sounds dull right? wrong!
From the get go this film will captivate you and hold you undivided attention with its extraordinary wit and intellegent humour as a man of very flexible morals, teaches his son the art of argument and all without a single cast member smoking a ciggerette. Genius!
On the of chance that I need any more reitteration- watch this film, watch it right now!

SMOKE IS COMING OUT OF EARS !By Burnhamite (379 reviews) from BURNHAM , 23 Apr 2013What a complete waste of time ! This movie would drive one, not to smoke, but to drink alcohol and end up in a rehabilitation clinic.
A Hidden GemBy noxskuses (9 reviews) , 30 Jan 2013Excellent film with some great performances from a quality cast. Jason Reitman delivers another insightful and witty dark comedy. More like this please.
Reitman For The JobBy Robinski (152 reviews) from Glasgow , 27 Dec 2012Cutting satire from Jason Reitman who also wrote the screenplay, and he directs an excellent cast, some in blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos. Aaron Eckhart is every inch the unscrupulous and single-minded PR wiz, sauntering through a slightly chaotic series of episodes, surrounded by a host of well drawn characters. The scenes featuring the cabal of Eckhart, Mario Bello (booze) and David Koechner (guns) are biting, and a triumverate of Robert Duval, JK Simmons and William H. Macy provide the gravitas (sort of!). As if that wasn't enough to keep your attention there are appearances by Sam Elliot, Rob Lowe, Dennis Miller and Todd Louiso. Katie Holmes plays reporter with her sights on the protagonist well enough. All in all it's an entertaining piece and should get the grey cells going, but for Reitman it perhaps serves best as a warm up for what followed, namely 'Juno' then 'Up in the Air'.
INHALE AND ENJOYBy Fenlandia (11 reviews) , 27 Aug 2012Great fun. This is what our stinky politicians and big biz do. Face up to it people! Enjoyed AE's smooth, clever and manipulative character portrayal. We need more comedies like this keeping it real.
Dry, witty, dark comedy....By twosoddingcats (212 reviews) from Kingston-upon-Thames , 05 Jun 2012Nick Taylor (Aaron Eckhart) is a sexy, charismatic spin doctor for big tobacco firms and he can talk his way out of anything making sure the tobacco firms come out on top. Eckhart is well cast as he's sexy, slick and smart. Liked the regular lunches he had with his MAD (merchants of death) friends (they work for alcohol and firearms firms). This is funny, dry and darkly comedic.....Watch out for Rob Lowe as a Hollywood talent agent- just brilliant...don't know how he kept a straight face.
