this movie showed kids how cool smoking was


this movie influneced kids to start smoking. was it really necessary to have that in there?

reply

This movie was rated "R" in the US so I doubt many kids saw it.

Seriously, do you really think this is they type of movie that hordes of teenagers went out to see? Are you just trolling?

What a waste. Oh, the humanity!

It was much more common in previous decades to show smoking in movies. No one really thought of it as a bad thing or something to keep away from kids until, I believe, the 90's. If you go back and watch just about any movie from the 80's, 70's, or earlier, everyone is smoking.

This is totally an adult-oriented drama; teens would find little of interest here so, no, it didn't show kids how "cool" smoking is.
