The Stunt Man

 

 

SmokeScreeners Rating:  

Year of Release: 1980

MPAA Rating: R

Director: Richard Rush

Distributor: 20th Century Fox

This film was reviewed by Dr. Bary Hummel of QuitDoc Foundation on June 16, 2017.

Additional Comments:  "There was surprisingly little smoking for a movie from this era.  Only one co-star (Charles Bail) was seen smoking on two occasions; the remaining smoking was done by background extras.  Most of the smoking took place indoors, bumping this film up to its rating of 3 Butts."

Alien: Covenant

 

 

SmokeScreeners Rating

Year of Release: 2017

MPAA Rating: R

Director: Ridley Scott

Distributor: 20th Century Fox

This film was reviewed by Dr. Barry Hummel of QuitDoc Foundation on June 3, 2017.

Additional Comments:  "Two of the actors (Demián Bichir, Benjamin Rigby) were seen smoking on the planet's surface.  While this smoking did occur outdoors, it begs the question: exactly why do astronauts in hypersleep on deep space missions so compelled to pack cigarettes and cigars for the trip?"

Parenthood

 

 

SmokeScreeners Rating:  

Year of Release: 1989

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Director: Ron Howard

Distributor: Universal Pictures

This film was reviewed by Dr. Barry Hummel of QuitDoc Foundation on July 24, 2016.

Additional Comments:  "There was not a lot of smoking in Parenthood.  In fact, there were only four scenes of smoking... but it was the quality of the smoking that made this such a problematic film.  Co-star Dennis Dugan had the least controversial smoking scene by simply lighting up in a workplace, something not out of the ordinary in 1989 when this film was released.  Co-star Clint Howard played a belligerent parent who smoked near the young ballplayers at a little league game.  Joaquin Phoenix played a teenager seen smoking alongside of a drag racer. However, family patriarch Jason Robards set a new standard by pulling down a No Smoking sign at the maternity ward of a hospital and lighting up a cigar around several of his grandchildren.  Each of these represents a high-profile smoking scene that created a pro-tobacco message."
