Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "[Reitman] understands that the author's verbal slapstick and pyrotechnical plot turns are both smart and broad, and he and his cast, led by Aaron Eckhart at his most hilariously slick, just let rip." Premiere "[I]t may provide some transitory pleasure for its ostensible equal-opportunity political skewering." New York Times "Jason Reitman's film festival hit is a cheeky, irreverent blast of political incorrectness." Movieline's Hollywood Life "This razor-sharp satire is the wittiest dark comedy of the year thus far....Eckhart gives a whip-smart performance."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "Reitman is fighting absurdity with absurdity..." Total Film "[T]here's sufficient blistering irony in its first hour and a steady enough rat-a-tat-tat of new-millennium cynicism to make THANK YOU FOR SMOKING addictive stuff." Sight and Sound "Eckhart advocates devilishly as tobacco lobbyist/spin surgeon Nick Naylor..." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith a snappy visual style and a terrific ensemble cast..."Uncut0.1960274
