Hey, is that lizard smoking?!
Paramount's new animated feature, Rango, has a lot of people up in arms. It seems some of the characters in the PG-rated movie are shown smoking cigarettes and cigars. In fact, according to Yahoo, there are more than 60 instances of smoking throughout the film.
A Paramount spokesperson says that the movie does not glamorize smoking in any way: "The images of smoking in the film, which primarily involves the animals, are portrayed by supporting characters and are not intended to be celebrated or emulated." The main character, Rango -- voiced by Johnny Depp -- is never shown smoking.
But that might not be enough to appease parents and anti-smoking groups like Breathe California.
So I have to ask ... Would you take your child to see a movie with smoking in it? Did you watch a lot of movies with smoking as a kid? Did it affect how you look at smoking?
