This speech is brilliant. It’s by the character Nick Naylor from ‘Thank You For Smoking.’ Too true…

    • DCMOFO

      I need more then heads. Or for that matter, I need more then tails. I believe we need freedom and choice when it comes to who wins……

      Rock paper scissors, the definition of liberty.

        Surprisingly, and sadly, it actually was.

  • name

    This is why I hate politics.

    • C-man

      Agreed, this type of logic is lazy and stupid. Misdirection is for bad illusionists and politicians. If you can't argue a topic with logic and sledgehammer facts what's the point?

    • dub

      YOU are politics. How can you hate yourself? Ya'll got your angst mixed up.

    • JPV

      This is why I LOVE politics, this movie made me want to become a lobbyist

  • Catch

    One of the best scenes from a good movie :))

  • Hero_ofthe_Day

    I fucking love this movie. It's so refreshing to have a comedy that relies on wit, not that I hate dick jokes or anything.

    • Some Dude

      Your mom likes dick….jokes.

    • Birdhaus32

      So are you saying you love the cock?

  • Danny Ong

    takes them forever to put mustard on a damn hot dog. beginning to think they're not even hungry.

    • ale

      Always happens in movies!!!… I couldn´t stand grease cause they ignore a burger, fries and a milkshake with icecream.

      • dub

        Whoa there contradiction man….

        I'm starting to think you DO like grease. Lots of it.

        • Thumpybass

          I believe he's referring to the movie, Grease. NO ONE EATS in that movie

          • ale

            LOLZ, is "ale", of alejandra… so its "almost" ok if I ever watched grease. but seriuosly, the mikshake looked good!

  • Spencer

  • E.V.L.

    Never caught the movie, but thinking now I might have to order it on Netflix ;)

    • Jeff Marks

      netflix…???!!???? i think ill jus download it

  • sirforsyth

    Great film. However regarding (political) debates I find it rather scary that adults need to be reminded of the point he makes in the video.

    • Joe

      Everyone, including all of us that just watched that, should be care to think they are immune to what he is doing. The psychology research is pretty clear that we shut or critical thinking when we are listening to someone we agree with. Everyone that read or listened to an opinion, or saw an ad today probably fell into this trap and didn't even know it and cant remember it. Its the default mode of human beings.

    My Mommy says smoking kills.
    Oh, is your Mommy a doctor?
    A scientific researcher of some kind?
    Well, then she's hardly a credible expert, is she?


    • JPV

      I loved that scene, totally outdid the firefighter

  • naomiprice

    Try this one. don't fail me chivers.
    release the pics, yes or no?
    release the pics, right or wrong?
    release the pics, it will be fake. don't release the pics? they don't exist.

  • KeyserSoze

    that was almost as good as the chewbacca defense….

  • PhJ
