Hey movie buffs!

My 15 year old asked for examples of movies where the "cool" people smoke.
I thought of Casablanca, but it turns out he hasn't seen it.
And Cowboy Bebop, but that was rejected as "too nerdy". I assume too nerdy to admit he used to like it.

What movie is recent enough that he and his classmates would be likely to have seen it, and old enough that they still allowed smoking, and for smoking to be cool?

I know that I've seen lethal Weapon, although just now I can't remember what it was about. The kid hasn't seen it.

James Bond movies were what we finally settled on. The earlier ones had a lot of smoking shown as a positive thing.

I get the impression this was for a paper for school about smoking. The kid has had so little exposure to smoking that he doesn't see how it could be attractive to anyone - which no doubt made that part of his paper challenging to write.

I'm sure that a quick stroll to Wikipedia will refresh your memory of "Lethal Weapon".

As for Bond movies, an interesting one to highlight is "You Only Live Twice". Bond being allowed to smoke in the crater-base's control room is what allowed the ninjas to infiltrate the facility.
