    I've been noticing in a lot of the movies made today, that every one has the people smoking. Anyone else notice this, or is it just me???? Didn't they for the longest time stop showing smoking in films, or am I just not hip with the times??? :laugh: This is not a bash against smokers, I've been trying to quit myself for awhile now, with no success.

    Yes( if you say yes, why do you think this is?)
    no(then I really must not be HIP with the movies)
    This was just something that I was thinking about lately, from watching some late night movies on hbo, showtimes and so on. So I thought I'd ask you guys.:thanks:

    Stephanie,
    I couldn't say I've personally noticed it, but I heard a movie critic say a few months ago that smoking is big in the movies lately. So you may be right!

    Tobacco companies pay big bucks for "product placement."

    You aren't imagining things.

    You'd think with all the sex in the movies, the condom companies would take a hint!
