This film was reviewed by Dr. Barry Hummel of QDREF on April 7, 2013.
Additional Comments: "This film had an incredible amount of smoking for a modern movies, with 35 distinct smoking incidents. The film's star and director, Ben Affleck, accounted for 20% of the smoking. In addition, two other stars (John Goodman and Brian Cranston), and four of the main costars were also seen smoking. Because this was a period piece, some of the smoking was seen in locations where smoking is now restricted (airplanes, office spaces). The good news? This is an R-Rated movie, not really geared towards youth. The bad news? This film won the Best Picture Oscar for 2012, so people will be seeing this smoking for years to come!"
