The double, triple, and sometimes quadruple entendres are spoken conversationally by a star-studded ensemble cast, who clearly revel in great material and great lines. He also tells a story of the responsibilities of freedom and choice, and the consequences all with a sense of humor. Nick îşi spune că nu face decât ceea ce trebuie ca să-şi plătească ipoteca, dar conştiinţa e de altă părere. Nick's life gets even more complicated when a liberal senator mounts an anti-smoking campaign that he must counter. Se poate spune ca Nick n-are o slujbă chiar uşoară în vremurile acestea, de cultură în stil neo-puritan. Nick somewhat sympathetic, makes his argument that it is in his best interest to keep people like Robin alive so they can continue to smoke cigarettes.
Along with two other spokespeople for the alcohol- and firearms industry respectively, he is part of the self-appointed M. Intr-o zi sotia lui, care nu i-a cerut niciodata nimic, pune piciorul in prag si ii cere sa se lase de fumat. Perhaps those champions of individual freedom are actually sociopaths, using liberty as an excuse for doing bad. Reitman's execution and screenplay are very intriguing. This is one of the best films I've seen come out of the last twenty years of Hollywood schlock. The movie's storyline is the reason this film is important and laudable. He has to be representing one of the most hated industries in the United States, yet he is able to convince people as to the opposite! But Nick is good in what he does for the mortgage.
But at the same time it never loses its dual focus: that of Naylor's relationship with his son, where he's still trying to be a good role model despite how hated he is by others for what he does, and with the other focus just being the brilliance of Naylor's spin. And in the business world it is all about the bottom line. El trebuie să se confrunte cu suisurile și coborâșurile în viața nouă, dar se poate găsi iubit de întreaga familie. The story was good, maybe because there haven't been any movies about a spokesperson for the tobacco industry. Nick wins over the entire studio audience for his humanitarian stance. It'll be nice to have more good writing, good acting and good direction in March for a change.
Aaron Eckhart did a fine job in his role, as did Sam Elliot, Rob Lowe, Katie Holmes. The multiple meanings of the lines particularly stand-out. And it's not that Naylor thinks cigarettes are the greatest invention ever: he does what he does for the challenge. From the get-go, it's a fast-paced send-up of everyone and everything in the tobacco war. The chief spokesperson and lobbyist Nick Taylor Aaron Eckhart is the Vice-President of the Academy of Tobacco Studies. Nou dobândita notorietate a lui Nick atrage atenţia unui mare producător de ţigări Robert Duvall dar şi a unei reportere de investigaţii de la un ziar influent din Washington Katie Holmes. When the ambitious reporter Heather Holloway betrays Nick disclosing confidences he had in bed with her, his life turns upside-down.
I don't think i've laughed this hard in a long long time. And to think I wouldn't have even gone out of my way to see this film, had it not been for the good luck of winning tickets on the radio. He fails; however Joey presents a winning argument that gains him a trip to Los Angeles with his Dad. Nick Naylor's job is spin, and he's damn good at it. Sure it had some good jokes and was an interesting story, but as the film ended it just didn't fit together. I found myself laughing out loud. Overall, however, the pace is fast enough where the laughs keep coming.
Eckhart shines in this film. Dar si a unei reportere de investigatii de la un ziar influent din Washington Katie Holmes. Etcharkt throws an unseen sparkle, and the script is in charge of putting America into the focus, bringing the movie a smart edge. Nick Naylor's Eckart relationship with his son is center and keeps some genuine qualities through all the laughs. His tasks in this film include getting cigarettes back into movies, preferably being used by Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones right after a zero-g sex scene, and to convince a congressional subcommittee to not include a new poison icon on all packs of cigarettes. The story of a lobbyist for the tobacco industry who's job is to put a spin on cigarettes, improve their image, make them cool again, and prevent one senator from getting legislature to mandate that cigarette companies place a large graphic skull and cross bones on each pack sold. He plays Nick with the innate charm that tempers his arrogance and aloofness.
The style is also perfect - brisk, light-hearted, with impeccable timing marred only by a tangental subplot including Sam Elliott that is, sadly, not very funny. William H Macy, however, as the anti-tobacco Senator for Vermont home to cheese-created cholesterol , manages to avoid farce and produce a believable character. He just has such a loud mouth: I love hearing him swear and rant in movies. The movie is full of subplots and great supporting characters, but the movie doesn't seem weighed down by them. The very attractive Eckhart is superb as the man whose love for debate supersedes his ethics. Începe să se gândească ce imagine va avea el în ochii fiului său Joey Cameron Bright , şi ce părere va avea copilul despre munca lui.
There were about 2 good laughs that were new to me, but the other 7, I had already seen in those marvelous trailers. Young Jason Reitman's direction and screenplay are deft and light. It was truly refreshing how no one in the film was filmed smoking a cigarette. Eckhart is a great looking leading man who is edgy and has impeccable comedic timing. I quited smoking almost twenty-five years ago, and I do not like smokers and cigarettes, but Nick Taylor is amazing spinning the truth to defend the cigarette industry to pay his mortgage. His associates in crime do likewise for the alcohol and firearms industries.
It's contradictory of what the start of he film was. Pokes fun at the smoking industry and lobbyists , but at others as well, and its hard to disagree with the sharp satire. Merchants of Death, disputing which industry has killed more people. Aaron Eckhart is as perfect as they come. A very enjoyable little satire. We need fewer copfilms, chases, special effects, heists and super heroes and more good writing and original ideas. I don't know what people outside Los Angeles may make of this.
