Thank you for smoking

  1. 1. By Jaclyn James, Douglas Hall, Leron Roberts, Jacqueline Waring, Erin Mclemore, Zachary Ferguson
  2. 2. <ul><li>It is a satirical comedy follows the a Big Tobacco's chief spokesman, Nick Naylor, who works as a spokesman for the Academy of Tobacco Studies who spins on the behalf of the cigarettes company while trying to be a role model for his twelve-year-old son. We meet Nick Naylor on &quot;The Joan Lunden Show,&quot; sitting next to a bald-headed little boy Robin, a 15-year-old boy who is dying of cancer, &quot;but has stopped smoking.&quot; Nick rises smoothly to the challenge: &quot;It's in our best interests to keep Robin alive and smoking,&quot; he explains. &quot;The anti-smoking people want Robin to die.&quot; If he dies then he loses a customer, then he announces that they will start a 15 million dollars campaign to help stop underage smoking and the crowd start to cheer. Naylor's opponent in the film is Sen. Ortolan Finistirre , a Vermont environmentalist whose office desk is covered with his collection of maple syrup bottles. The senator has introduced legislation requiring a skull and crossbones to be displayed on every cigarette pack, replacing the government health warning. The symbol is better than the words, he explains, because &quot;They want those who do not speak English to die.&quot; Throughout the movie Nick faces one challenge after another, form trying to explain what he does to his son, to trying increase the sale of cigarettes. The movie comes to its climax when the reporter he is sleeping with Heather Holloway writes a newspaper article reviling all his secrets. In the end he spins it to where he come out the hero and goes in front of congress to define his point that we all know that smoking is bad, but it is their choice. </li></ul>
