Quotes

Ted Danson: Smoking is a great prop. It's a great prop in life.
Sean Penn: Make no mistake; as it relates to a conversation on film, this is strictly a censorship conversation. No question, this film is about censorship.
Chrsity Turlington: There is a strange sort of rebelliosness that is associated with smoking, and the thing is, it's such a false rebelliousness. There's nothing cool about it. It's conformity in the worst way.

Very educational special which depicts one reason teenagers may start smoking
11 July 2007 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, this is a very educational special which depicts one reason teenagers may start smoking. I must say that seeing it on TV and in movies is absolutely one reason why they might. This is absolutely true for teenage girls. When I heard this, I was really shocked. This was because I figured out that most people who smoke took their first puff when they were teenagers. I can relate to this special very well. This is because some people in my family smoke. In conclusion, if you have children, I strongly recommend that you sit them down and have a detailed conversation with them about the dangers of tobacco and other drugs. It's very, very bad for your health.
