12. No, I don't see a lot of movies, that's why it stands out.
The last one I saw was Melinda Melinda. The main character smoked, a lot. But it was in keeping with her character. What was interesting was that she was visiting friends who lived in a very pristine house. No one said, "Please don't smoke in here, could you step outside and smoke."

Maybe there is a list that identifies which movies show more or less prominent smoking.

Are you a smoker? Maybe smokers are less likely to notice this. I don't smoke, nor do my friends. I just think if they're going to push cigarette smoking, the name of the tobacco company should be identified in the products. If kids are beginning to smoke based on what they see in the movies, let them be aware of the manipulation.

Something just occurred to me. Perhaps movies geared to a younger audience show smoking moreso than those geared to an older audience.
