My wife and I went to see "Thank You For Smoking" this afternoon followed closely by "The Insider" which we sneaked into see for free....shhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!
We movie hop most times when we go to ensure we get our moneys worth !!
Both movies were great..really...we had the best time !...With the smoking movie I laughed so much, it was great to just laugh for a couple of hours, I'd definately recommend it if you're looking for some well written humour !
The Insider was great, the soundtrack reminded me of an old bond movie or something, John Barry type orchestration and the opening Indian theme was great..It keeps you guessing as to what's going on till the very end. However, I made no attempt to figure out what was going on as I prefer to be taken on a journey by the director and let it unravel rather than trying to be a sleuth throughout the movie.

Go see both, you'll not be disappointed !

Hey, Next. Would that latter movie be Inside Man?

If so, yes, thought it great fun. Good performances all around, with crisp writing & pacing. Spike did a good job with it.

Haven't seen Thank You For Smoking, but have picked up the book.

Haven't seen the Smoking movie, but Inside Man is one of our favorites.
Excellent.
