    Synopsis

    A tobacco company devises a surefire stunt: award $25 million to the Rockwellian hamlet of Eagle Rock, Iowa if it can give up cigarettes for 30 days. As the media circus descends (played by comedy duo Bob & Ray in multiple roles) the townsfolk (led by Dick Van Dyke as a conniving minister and Jean Stapleton as the ever-fattening mayor's wife) get ready for their newfound fortune and fame. Roger Ebert grouped the bitterly hilarious COLD TURKEY with another 1971 release (A NEW LEAF) as part of a welcome new mean-streak in American film comedy. Lear briefly stepped away from TV success in 1978 to work on a follow-up film about right-wing evangelists, a project that never came to fruition.
