Ok, so I don't like to call people I don't know names, but sometimes what they do is just too stupid to ignore. That a woman in Michigan for instance who is suing the distributors of the movie Drive because the movie was too smart for her. I'm not kidding. She's suing because the trailers looked like The Fast and The Furious and the actual movie was nothing like that.
Now, this would all just be fun and games, if it wasn't for the fact that some idiot lawyers actually took the case. If this case somehow miraculously wins, that could spell a whole lot of trouble for good movies out there. If the case wins, then movie producers might start thinking, "Gee, if people are getting sued for NOT making a movie where two cars pull a bank vault behind it, then maybe I should only make those movies."
Now, don't get me wrong. Liking The Fast and the Furious does not make you stupid. Suing people because the movie you where watching was nothing like The Fast and the Furious is. How she managed to see the trailer and not a single plot synopsis, review, interview or news story about the movie is something I find extremely fishy. Next time she should make sure to research the movie she is seeing. I wouldn't want her to walk into J. Edgar later this year think that, because Leonardo DiCaprio's in it, it must be Inception.
See you later.
