[Thank You For Smoking]

Last night we hit a free screening of Thank You For Smoking, and dude, it was so great. Very slick. It's been a while since I have seen such a solid comedy. Great script, timing, editing, use of the form of film (freeze frame, etc.) Pretty much everyone was fantastic. I hate to get on a bandwagon, and I loved Katie Holmes in Pieces of April, but she just added -nothing- to the picture.

It was certainly a new thing to see Aaron Eckhart in a movie and not totally hate him. (I mean, in the movies I've hated him in we're -supposed- to hate him.)

Hopefully you will have better people sitting around you, though. This dude behind me didn't turn off his phone. It rang, he answered it, and talked for full on two minutes at least before saying, "Dude, I'm at a movie." Like, I get that it's a free screening, but have a little respect!

Death might have been too kind for him.
