Default Woman Sues Over Drive Trailer

rotflmao wow

Lawsuit claims she was promised Fast & Furious but got art.


A Michigan woman so disliked the critically acclaimed Drive that she has filed suit against distributor FilmDistrict over feeling misled about what movie she claims the trailer had promised her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (via WDIV-TV), Sarah Deming's suit claims FilmDistrict "promoted the film Drive as very similar to the Fast and Furious, or similar, series of movies." Instead, she got an artsy drama with some action in it.

Furthermore, the lawsuit claims "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."

But that's not all. She also wants a refund for her movie ticket and wants her case to lead to a class-action lawsuit against Hollywood to halt the making of "misleading movie trailers."



Does the plaintiff have a point about "misleading movie trailers" when it comes to Drive? Sound off in the Comments below!

Waste of the court's time and resources. People wonder why it's so messed up. Shit bags like this woman is one big reason.

No, it has nothing to do with Vin.


She is right that Drive was presented as more of an action based movie, which it is not.

Movie studios do it all the time and its not their fault she didnt find out more about what she was going to see.

Thumbs down




Hopefully the Film District can counter sue in order to pay on the defense in this case.
