Have any of you seen this movie?
It's an intelligent, dark comedy, and is shockingly funny.

It's about a Big-Tobacco lobbyist, but it could really be about ANY lobbyist, funded by Big Corporate dollars.

Nick Naylor, the lobbyist works for "Academy of Tobacco Studies" (ATS LOL)
HE can turn any argument against cigarettes, into support for the tobacco industry (those poor farmers).

I also recommend this for anyone who would like to enhance their debating technique (great for discussion boards!).

GO see it, I think you will enjoy yourself..And it will make you go hmmmmmm.

I saw it the other day, was pretty good.

It's not about winning an argument and proving yourself right, it's about proving the other person wrong!

**Possible Spoiler Below**

Not a single person smoked in the movie. Although throughout the movie they tried to make actors smoke more in movies.

I didn't even notice that thing you mentioned in your possible spoiler!

There was one shot in the movie that stood out to me..
It was right after they used the word "angel" in the dialog.
Then they cut to a shot of one of the main characters.
This shot was framed to create a visual that this person had wings, even though they didn't...
