Better than Suing for Turbulence? How About a Bad Movie

Compliments of my Twitter follower Wayne Chow (@wayne_chow), a woman is suing a film studio alleging false-advertising after seeing a movie that appeared to be one thing in the trailer, but turned out to be another in the theater.

Ms. Sarah Deming claims that the preview for the recent Ryan Gosling movie Drive made it look like a “Fast and the Furious” type of movie.

However, for Deming, the movie “bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film … having very little driving".

She also claims the movie is anti-Semitic.

She’s suing the studio and the theater where she saw it.

Here's a link to the article.

Other potentially misleading titles:

1) Star Wars: A story about Ronald Reagan's ground and space defence system

2) Raging Bull: a biography of Richard Moll from Night Court

3) Jaws: a story about Ron Jaworski

4) Platoon: a story about Rex Hudler

5) Stand By Me: The Phoenix Coyotes saga
