Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who'll fight to protect America's right to smoke - even if it kills him - while still remaining a role model for his 12-year-old son. When he incurs the wrath of a senator bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick's powers of "filtering the truth" will be put to the test. As Nick says, "If you want an easy job, go work for the Red Cross." With a smokin' all-star cast that includes William H. Macy, Rob Lowe, Adam Brody, Maria Bello, Katie Holmes and Robert Duvall, this "fiendishly funny" ("Good Morning America") comedy will prove seriously addictive.
America is living in spin and that's exactly how Nick Naylor likes it. Thank You for Smoking, the outrageously witty satire of one man's fight to promote America's right to smoke, arrives on DVD October 3, 2006 from Fox Home Entertainment. Aaron Eckhart (Erin Brockovich) stars as Nick Naylor, a cool, cocky D.C. lobbyist whose moral elasticity allows him to slickly turn every threat to Big Tobacco's image into an opportunity to spin - Nick doesn't hide the truth - he filters it. Based on Christopher Buckley's novel, critics and audiences are hooked on this "slashingly hilarious comedy" (New York Magazine) that Rolling Stone is saying "will make you laugh till it hurts." Featuring an all-star cast including Maria Bello (A History of Violence), Adam Brody (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, "The O.C."), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins), Rob Lowe ("The West Wing," Austin Powers in Goldmember), William H. Macy (Seabiscuit) and Robert Duvall (Kicking and Screaming), Thank You for Smoking is a "gloriously politically incorrect send-up of Washington's culture of shameless spin" (Newsweek).
The DVD features a carton-full of bonus material including cast and director commentary, deleted scenes, the Making of Thank You for Smoking featurette and more. Thank You for Smoking will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$43.48 Canada.
