Genre: Comedy/Drama

Smoking kills, but Nick Naylor (Eckhart) would beg to differ. He is one man who talks for a living and does he talk! Nick is the Vice President of The Academy of Tobacco Studies which in turn is funded by the conglomerate of tobacco industries. He is the official spokesperson for cigarette manufacturers and smooth talks his way when they are in a mess. Senator Finistirre (Macy) is lobbying against smoking and wants to put a 'poison' sticker on cigarette boxes; call Nick Naylor. BR (Simmons) Nick's boss, is fed up with plummeting sales and wants a new way to increase smoking; ask Nick Naylor. When people keep asking him why he does this job, he smooth talks his way out of it using his own philosophies. After sleeping with Heather (Holmes) a journalist, Nick spills the beans about his job and everyone else concerned with it and soon realises his life is gone for a toss. The initial few moments in the movie are good enough to hold your interest, thanks to J.K. Simmons whose abuses too bring a broad smile to your face. Aaron Eckhart too does a fabulous job at maintaining a constant stream of humour. The movie has some nice humorous dialogues which increases its appeal, but not enough to make you fall off your seat.

Thumbs up: Nice performances, good plot
Thumbs down: More humour would have been preferred

Rating: 7.3/10
