The distributors of Drive, the critically successful film starring Ryan Gosling, are being sued by a woman named Sarah Deming that believes the trailer was misleading. Drive is one of the best films of 2011, so far, and Deming said that Drive didn’t have enough driving.
The lawsuit states:
-Drive was promoted as very similar to Fast and Furious, when in actuality, it wasn’t.
-“Drive bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film, for reasons including but not limited to Drive having very little driving in the motion picture.”
-“Extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith.
I don’t know if this woman is trying to hustle the system, actually believes in what she says, or both. Any way you look at it, the act makes human beings look bad. If the trailers for Drive had similarities to any film, it would be the Transporter (barely) not Fast and Furious. If you saw the film, there weren’t colorful races, but the chase scenes were gritty, tense, and done very well.
Additionally, if she thinks this film displays excessive “racism directed against members of the Jewish faith,” then she’s probably watched about 20 or so films her entire life, so I’m assuming she’s an 8 year old that happens to know how to file a lawsuit. Deming should take a look at another Ryan Gosling film: the Believer, about a Jew that turns into a Neo-Nazi.
She was expecting a run-of-the –mill action flick and got a slick art-house crime drama, so she wants a refund? Boohoo. I went to a Casino that advertised that they always have big winners and the loosest slots in town, but all I won was an addiction to gambling. Oh no! Life didn’t go as expected. It happens (a lot). Be real lady.
