A witty, smart comedy about a lobbyist for the tobacco world who makes a living off of “talking”. Nick Naylor does not care about being right, as long as he can prove you wrong. He has the art of correctly argue for what he believes in, which, according to him, is not the same as a negotiation….
The title of the movie caught my interest at first; and knowing Katie Holmes has a small role of a reporter, let alone Aaron Eckhart playing Nick Naylor…. He’s not that cute looking but he’s perfect for the role as he can have anyone convinced.
The movie is kind of like a documentary. It’s smart, witty, different, and new, but like Little Miss Sunshine, I probably would not need to watch it a second time.
