How many times have you left the theater cursing under your breath because the movie you just saw was nothing like the advertisements? Ever want to sue over that? Sarah Deming of Keego Harbor, Michigan wanted to and did. She is suing both FilmDistrict, Drive‘s distributor, and the Michigan based theater chain Emagine for “promoting the film Drive as very similar to Fast and Furious, or similar, series of movies.“. She goes on to claim this pretty funny statement as well, “Drive bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film… having very little driving in the motion picture.”
To me it’s fairly obvious that Drive is nothing like the Fast and Furious films, but I can see how someone might mistake it for something in that vein. That being said she obviously reads into things a little more than a normal person. She continues with “Drive was a motion picture that substantially contained extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith, and thereby promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith.” Yep, this lady’s not all there. What does Ms Deming want? A refund for starters. Not like she could have gotten that by simply leaving the movie early, when she realized it wasn’t as advertised, and complaining to someone at Emotion. No, this requires a lawsuit. Oh, and she plans on saving the rest of us as well by putting “an end to misleading movie trailers.”. Thanks. Thanks a lot. If you agree with her complaints you can join up with her when she takes her suit class-action next week.
