New on DVD: Thank You For Smoking

Thank You For Smoking (R)

Warning: This movie may be hazardous to Political Correctness's health. The year's funniest movie to date, "Thank You For Smoking" delights in upending Hollywood convention by making Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), a spokesman for Big Tobacco, the good guy. Relatively speaking, that is. The film pokes fun at the industry's brazen attempts to glamorize cigarettes, and it doesn't stint on noting smoking's dangers. But director Jason Reitman's greater concern is nanny-state government regulation and its effect on personal responsibility. Now that's unfiltered satire. Grade: A
