Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Thank You for Smoking is a 1994 novel written by Christopher Buckley and 2005 dark comedy film directed by Jason Reitman and starring Aaron Eckhart, William H. Macy and Katie Holmes.Eckhart's character, Nick Naylor, is a lobbyist for the big tobacco corporations, and his job is to defend them in the moral, economic and social arena of the United States. The film asks many questions about the morality of smoking versus free choice. The main plot of the film is Naylor's progression through different mindsets in the tobacco industry, particularly as he tries to appear as a good role model to his 10-year-old son. Although the film doesn't take a strong stance for or against smoking, it teaches us that "the great state of Vermont will not apologize for its cheese."It's worth noting that while the movie deals with smoking advertising in films, it never once shows a character actually smoking. Make of that what you will.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Actually Pretty Funny: At the climax, BJ admits that everyone he works with loved the "Merchants of Death" moniker, to the point of getting bumper stickers printed off.

20 Minutes into the Past: While the film was released in 2005, it is set in the late 1990s, before the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (1998) which closes the film was concluded. The novel on which it was based was released in 1994.

Acceptable Targets: In-Universe, when the movie producer tells Nick that only three kinds of people still smoke in the movies nowadays: RAVs, or Russians, Arabs, and Villains.

0% Approval Rating: Arguing for an industry that is seen as a killer doesn't make you very popular. Nick more or less accepts this and it makes his job more rewarding when he succeeds.
