Reviewers' Comments:
While we appreciate the anti-tobacco messages from Hilary & Haylie, it wasn't necessary to depict tobacco use as something fashionable. How sad it is that the producer, Duff's mom, didn't fight to keep her daughter from smoking on screen. BP and CM

Health of Smoker & non smoker
Etienne offers girls Hillary/Haylie a cigarette and they say "Ew, no, gross!" In credits Haylie as herself says "Ew, I can feel it (smoke) inside.
