Added DiffLines:

** Papa Midnite subverts the cigarillo trope by being a good/neutral witch-doctor turned bartender.
** Constantine smokes excessively, only to find out during the movie that he has lung cancer. [[spoiler: After Constantine willingly sacrifices himself to save the world (allowing him to enter Heaven), Satan ends up curing his cancer to keep him alive so he can claim him later.]] At the end of the movie, he's seen popping gum in his mouth.

* FantasticCatholicismFantasticCatholicism: The title character is a Catholic demon-hunter who uses guns and magic to send demons back to hell in a world where {{God}} and the Devil are in a bet over who can influence mankind the most. Roger Ebert on the movie:
-->'''Roger Ebert:''' Why do movies about {{Satan}} always have Catholics? You never see Methodists or Episcopalians putting down demons.
