Thank You for Smoking was a fun treat of a movie. Not quite the fair and balanced look at things I was secretly hoping for, but they certainly had their moment in that regard. Aaron Eckhart is fantastic, and I think this'll be the one that puts him on the map. (Though, one of Rob Lowe's costumes does its best to steal the show.) Highly entertaining.

The real treat for me was that the cast was chock full of B and C list stars. Seriously, we get: Dick from High Fidelity, Champ from Anchorman, Nurse Roberts from Scrubs, Joanie Stubbs from Deadwood, freakin' J. Jonah Jameson, and many more. Positively fantastic for a movie dork like myself.

Next up, the Old Greenbelt appears to be getting Transamerica, which I think I'm also on board for.

Dick and Champ are both in _Snakes on a Plane_ too, ya know.

You wanted a fair and balanced satire?

Both sides have plenty work satirizing. I'm thinking a Daily Show-esque, equal-opportunity mocking here.
