Reviewers' Comments:
It shouldn't seem stranger than fiction that a good friend would want to help someone very addicted to smoking quit the habit. Queen Latifah's character was never yielding in her attempts to save the life of her friend. SM

Anti-Tobacco Message 1:
Comment
Health of Smoker
Queen Latifah offers several times to help Thompson quit. She also says "It may save your life."
Last scene when listing things people can take comfort in (a subtle hint) a box of Brand New Day patches are placed on Thompson's typewriter.
