Woman Didn’t Like The Movie Drive, Sues.

Woman Didn’t Like The Movie Drive, Sues.

The movie Drive has received a lot of mixed reviews. Some critics loved it, but some people hated Drive because it was not at all what they expected.

But a woman in Michigan hated it so much she has decided to sue. Her claim? False advertising.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“Sarah Deming has filed a lawsuit against FilmDistrict claiming that the distributors, ‘promoted the film Drive as very similar to the Fast and Furious, or similar, series of movies.’ ”

Deming argues that “Drive bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film…” and is demanding a refund for her movie ticket and a halt to misleading movie trailers.  Deming also claims the film was anti-Semitic, which doesn’t seem exactly relevant to the lawsuit.

Just like the movie, this lawsuit is receiving a lot of criticism. Read all about it here, here, and here.
