"Drive" is being sued for not being "Fast Five"

    Well according to this article on "Starpulse.com", it looks like a lady was upset by the film, "Drive."  Not only did she go on record to say the film was allegedly racially offensive, but she claims that her major gripe was...IT WASN'T "FAST FIVE!!"  According to her, she walked into the theater believing from the adds that she would be watching a film similar to "Fast Five", but she left highly disappointed; hence she's suing the film makers behind "Drive." 

    Although, it hasn't been reported yet as to whether she'll actually have a snow ball's chance in hell of winning, but it should be fun to watch.  Here's the link for more details:

    Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?

            This does sound like a stupid lawsuit, but there have been worse.  There was a guy who sued Denny's because the butter on his pancakes wasn't melted.  He won the lawsuit and the jury awarded him $10,000.  Anything can happen in the "Land of Opportunity"  big_smile

              That's fairly interesting.  I think I have an idea for a lawsuit.  You think if put on some of that Axe cologne crap, and tried to sue the developers of it because I didn't get any women with it, then do you think i'd have a case?  big_smile lol

              Or better yet, you think I have a case to sue Warner Bros. because Green Lantern wasn't the dark knight?

                  Well the Green Lantern one was to make fun of the woman's lawsuit of suing the film studio that made "Drive" because it wasn't "fast five", as it's obvious to anyone with half a brain that they're two different movies.  Just like "The Dark Knight" is a totally different kind of movie from "Green Lantern", but since they're both superheroes, I'm saying that I'll sue warner bros because Green Lantern wasn't the dark knight because they're both superhero films. Get it?

      lol  Well if you ask me, I think this woman is either trying to see if she can somehow con the studio into giving her free money over this, or she's a giant idiot.  seriously, who the hell sues a movie studio just because the film they made didn't turn out like another film?  That's like renting "Raging Bull", then suing the studio that made "Raging Bull" because it wasn't "Rocky."  That's just pointless and stupid. 

      As for racially offensive, I don't know what the hell she's talking about, as I saw that movie too, and I didn't see anything that was racially offensive.  She must be mistaking "Drive" for another movie.  OH wait, that's right...she thinks that "Drive" should've been like "Fast Five."  Personally, I tend to think she's either conning the studio, or she must be high on drugs if you ask me.  Not that I would ever point the finger at anyone for that, but I'm just saying.

    Dumb lawsuit. I thought "Drive" was a fantastic movie, one of the most exciting I've seen of its genre in a long time.
