If smoking is so important to American film, you’ll remember the films with smoking, right? These 30 popular U.S. films were released in the past five years. Some featured smoking, others did not. Circle “Y” or “N,” as best you can remember. Answers below. 1) Scary Movie 3 (PG-13) Y | N 2) Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (PG-13) Y | N 3) Tears of the Sun (R) Y | N 4) Napoleon Dynamite (PG) Y | N 5) Terminal (PG-13) Y | N 6) Dodgeball...Underdog Story (PG-13) Y | N 7) 50 First Dates (PG-13) Y | N 8) Something’s Gotta Give (PG-13) Y | N 9) Meet the Fockers (PG-13) Y | N 10) The Bourne Supremacy (PG-13) Y | N 11) Mean Girls (PG-13) Y | N 12) Collateral (R) Y | N 13) Kicking & Screaming (PG) Y | N 14) White Noise (PG-13) Y | N 15) The Wedding Date (PG-13) Y | N 16) Million Dollar Baby (PG-13) Y | N 17) Miss Congeniality (PG-13) Y | N 18) Bad News Bears (PG-13) Y | N 19) Akeelah and the Bee (PG) Y | N 20) Nacho Libre (PG) Y | N 21) Déjà Vu (PG-13) Y | N 22) The Devil Wears Prada (PG-13) Y | N 23) Casino Royale (PG-13) Y | N 24) Clerks II (R) Y | N 25) Spider-Man 3 (PG-13) Y | N 26) Breach (PG-13) Y | N 27) In the Land of Women (PG-13) Y | N 28) The Nanny Diaries (PG-13) Y | N 29) The Simpsons Movie (PG-13) Y | N 30) The Bourne Ultimatum (PG-13) Y | N Three out of four films since 1999 have featured smoking, so it’s easy to guess that a majority of the films listed here do, too. The challenge is, which ones? Hint: The MPAA ratings are no help. How did you score? 1-10 correct answers: You may not recall smoking in movies, but the research shows it recruits half of all new adolescent smokers. 11-20 correct answers: Got about half right? You’d do as well flipping a coin. 21-30 correct answers: Perhaps the only people who ever kept closer track of smoking in films were the product placement agencies hired by the cigarette companies. In the future, this quiz should be easy: just keep smoking out of G, PG and PG-13 movies. That’s the answer from the American Public Health Association, National School Boards Association, New York State Department of Health, and New York State PTA—the latest additions to our growing list of state-level, national and international endorsers.
