No, thank you

I just got home from seeing Thank You For Smoking. It's a delight. A delightful learning experience, even. I want the Bricklayer and Crash, my own personal Sultans of Spin, to see it immediately.

About 10 minutes into it I realized that I'd been laughing almost continuously since the movie started and so had everyone else. I thought, "Oh, they can't keep this up for a whole movie." Turns out they can.

If you enjoy a game watch the movie and then identify one time in the movie where someone smokes a cigarette. I don't think anyone ever does. Someone chews on a cigar and a background character chews on a pipe but there's no smoke. It's brilliant.

For a couple of months now every time I've heard or engaged in a conversation about this movie the refrain has been, "Oh yeah, great cast, I heard it's supposed to be good, can't wait to go."

Shut up, just go.
