Abstract
When a star promotes a product in a film, it's called an "advertorial." So is the film It's Complicated an advertorial for smoking marijuana? Jason Silva notes in his review of this movie at the Huffington Post that it shows "successful, cosmopolitan adults enjoying a marijuana joint with no consequences."1 Upset that the film received an "R" rating merely because of its potheads, Silva protests, "We should all be proud of director Nancy Meyers, and actors Meryl Streep and Steve Martin for helping solidify marijuana's entry into acceptable pop culture status."
