This film was reviewed by Dr. Barry Hummel of the QuitDoc Foundation on August 16, 2015.

Additional Comments:  "As one would expect, there was a significant among of smoking among the patients at the inpatient psychiatric hospital (including characters played by Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, William Redfield, Vincent Schiavelli, and Brad Dourif).  There was also one scene depicting the dangers of tobacco, during which a cigarette set fire to a patient's pajamas.  In addition, there were numerous scenes of product placement for Marlboro, Lucky Strike, and Pall Mall cigarettes."
