Probably First Class. Wolverine was puffing away there at the bar.

Funny that Logan, it goes to the trouble of showing him stealing a cigar only to never actually show him smoking it. In an R-rated movie. Pretty sure in this case, though, it was less being worried about being PC with cigar smoking and more worry about people going, "Oh what a horrible role model Wolverine is, smoking in front of his little girl like that!!!" and getting turned off.

It might have had more to do with the actress playing the kid, rather than Wolvie smoking in front of Laura.

EDIT: I just noticed that you're location says "Portugal". I was talking about 16-30 year olds in the United States.



Haha, WHAT?!?
I sh*t you not :lol. Seriously, google "Sherlock Holmes ejaculated quotes" for some examples.

LOL I love the turns this conversation has taken! Didn't Whistler smoke in the Blade movies? I do remember Wolvie smoking at least up to First Class. Didn't pick up that comment from Thing though. Doc Oc did IIRC, but I think it was only in one scene while building his (second) machine.

I'm trying to think of a smoking scene in any major superhero movie since the early 2000's, I can't think of many. I mean you'd occasionally see a bad guy or some background characters smoking, but you'd never see any of the major characters or "heroes" doing that anymore.

Most of them never DID.Captain America sure didn't that I know of, neither has Spidey or Daredevil(probably would mess with his senses since he is blind) and Supes and Batman never have that I know of.

Terra smoked in The New Teen Titans. ^^ Probably doesn’t count.

I remember when I saw Jaws for the first time and how shocked I was to see the mayor smoking in the hospital. I think I remember asking my mother about that when slightly older and she said, that in the 70s, it was okay to smoke in many places. My aunt was saying that when she was in junior high school or high school, there was a smoking area right on the school grounds for the students…or maybe the students just smoked there anyway, I don’t remember right off. That was back in the mid 70s.

My grandfather was a smoker as was my uncle. Due to their smoking, my father refused to. My uncle quit, but I’m not sure if he passed because of the long amount of years he smoked or not. I know that was the case for my grandfather.

I watched TMNT 1990 a week ago with my sister. She hadn't seen it in a long time, and you should have seen the look on her face when they show that kid smoking a cigar at Foot headquarters.

It's just a cliche. I know plenty of Nancys with smoking habits.

Everyone saw Churchill doing it, and it's been downhill ever since.

He might have in Days of Putrid Ass in the 70s. Maybe. I don't want to rewatch it to find out for sure.

The Comedian did. And am I misremembering, or did Peter Parker smoke in Spider-Man 3 when he was doing the hipster thing?

Commissioner Gordon did up to the late 80s. He had a heart attack and then stopped in the comics, it became this big drama.

I want to say that he's sooking on a lollipop, but its been a while...

I remember back in the late 80s, very early 90s, my parents would send my sister and I round to the local shop to buy them cigarettes. Was great for us because we'd get to spend the change of sweets.

One day they may ban selling soda to minors under 18. Imagine living in a world like that in the future.

Yeah, they tend to cut that scene out when it's show on TV.

Apparently soda is bad for you now. The way everyone and kids drink soda is similar to prior to the 90's where everyone smoked and wasn't aware of how harmful it was to your health.

Soda's and soft drinks are the new cigarette's, pretty soon they'll say soda causes death and say kids won't be able to drink it under 18. It's weird that places like MCdonald's and Burger King serve soda's to kids regularly, I think it's going to stop soon.

Goodbye Coca Cola. Goodbye Pepsi and Mountain Dew.

I remember when I was a little kid in the 80's running around in a drug store while my mom was checking out. While running I brushed up against some guy's lit cigarette and very mildly burned my arm. Imagine if that were to happen today, 30 years later. Not only would the guy get sued, but the drug store as well. I'd probably be a millionaire right now.
