Michigan Woman Suing Over Misleading “Drive” Trailer
Define frivolous lawsuit…
Well, there’s the greedy kids who tried sue their mother for “bad parenting”, and now there’s the Michigan woman who is upset that the movie “Drive” wasn’t like “The Fast and the Furious”. Sarah Deming has filed suit against FilmDristrict saying they,
“promoted the film Drive as very similar to the Fast and Furious, or similar, series of movies.”
In the movie, Ryan Gossling plays an unnamed stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver. Though there are several action-packed car scenes, the movie primarily centers around Gossling’s relationship with the character played by Carey Mulligan. According to the suit,
“Drive bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film… having very little driving in the motion picture.”
“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.”
Deming’s suit is seeking reimbursement for her movie ticket as well as the halting of what Deming calls “misleading movie trailers” in the future. Deming also intends to turn over her case into a class-action lawsuit to allow other disgruntled movie-goers a chance to take part.
