He is talented in speaking and spins argument to defend the cigarette industry in the most difficult situations. His best friends are Polly Bailey that works in the Moderation Council in alcohol business, and Bobby Jay Bliss of the gun business own advisory group SAFETY. They frequently meet each other in a bar and they self-entitle the Mod Squad a.k.a. Merchants of Death, disputing which industry has killed more people. Nick’s greatest enemy is Vermont’s Senator Ortolan Finistirre, who defends in the Senate the use a skull and crossed bones in the cigarette packs. Nick’s son Joey Naylor lives with his mother, and has the chance to know his father in a business trip. When the ambitious reporter Heather Holloway betrays Nick disclosing confidences he had in bed with her, his life turns upside-down. But Nick is good in what he does for the mortgage.
Plot: Nick Naylor is a charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who’ll fight to protect America’s right to smoke — even if it kills him — while still remaining a role model for his 12-year old son. When he incurs the wrath of a senator bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick’s powers of “filtering the truth” will be put to the test.

Very funny edu-tainment that doesn’t take sides
I saw this movie at a screening in DC last night. It was great. Aaron Eckhart, the single leading man with the WORST haircut in Hollywood (full disclosure – I’m damn near bald) matches very well with the direction of Reitman. From the get-go, it’s a fast-paced send-up of everyone and everything in the tobacco war. The entire cast does a good job (w/ the exception, maybe, of Katie Holmes). Rob Lowe is hysterical in his cameo, but I have to say Eckhart & his MOD squad buddies (Maria Bello & David Koechner) really light up the screen. Their scenes of discussing the dealing out of death through the industries they represent over drinks are a real strong point of the movie.
The fact that this movie doesn’t take sides – and really, could be about any issue, because it’s more about the MAN behind the spokesperson – but makes fun of all sides in the tobacco issue. The interaction b/w Nick Naylor (Eckhart) & the old Marlboro Man (Sam Elliot) is priceless, as is the back-and-forth between Naylor & Senator Ortolan Finistirre (William H. Macy) towards the end of the film -it’s basically good actors doing what they do well – and it’s very funny.
The movie’s also a little bit touchy-feely, focusing for a bit on the relationship b/w Naylor & his son, Joey (Cameron Bright) – the kid’s good & some of the lines written for him are priceless.
There was one odd, stupid thing – and my wife agrees w/ me on this, so I’m not just being a guy; there are 2 ‘sex’ scenes w/ Eckhart & Katie Holmes, but zero nudity. Nada. Not even partial. We see them having sex in multiple places & positions, but they’re almost completely clothed. It just took away from the credibility is all I’m trying to point out here – as I said, my wife actually made the comment before I did.
Bottom line, it’s a great movie – well worth the price of admission. It’s funny, it’s entertaining & it moves, what more could you ask for?
Entertaining and Honest…
Just saw this as it premiered in Toronto – awesome cast, very funny dialog, and more than skin deep. First time director does a nice job – and the opening credits are noteworthy. RECOMMENDED. Pokes fun at the smoking industry (and lobbyists), but at others as well, and its hard to disagree with the sharp satire. Rob Lowe’s small role is priceless, the casting was perfect across the board. Nick Naylor’s (Eckart) relationship with his son is center and keeps some genuine qualities through all the laughs. My friend and I both rated this near the top or at the top of the 7 films we saw in Toronto last weekend. Not sure what its distribution / release schedule is yet, as there was still some debate over who had actually purchased the rights to it. Eckart in person came across as very genuine and is also in another great upcoming movie – Neverwas.
