Wow. How stupid. I hate people like this. Never once did I get a fast and furious vibe from this. At all. She's just ignorant. And on top of that she wants to play the race card and claim it encourages hate crimes? Please.

No way this flies, nor should it. It would just set precedent for people to continually do this. I just hope the studio doesnt settle out of court with her. Take her through the ringer and let the court go ahead and rule on the case so they can set precedent that this stuff wont fly.

I agree. Please don't let people start doing this! It will start the ball rolling for others just to get their 15 minutes and some money and it will never end...also it might hurt all of us who loyally go to the movies for exactly what we do expect, entertainment.

Funny, because if Mrs Deming had in fact paid attention during the film, which in itself is a whopping 1hr 40 minutes. She would in fact know that the jewish gangster, played by Ron Perlman, complains about the bigotry he is assailed with on a daily basis. Hardly condoning predjudice, and as JL stated, playing the race card as an alibi.

The judge should throw this case out, Mrs Deming sounds like a complete professional.

I would agree that the trailer was very misleading. Many people thought it would be a movie like the Transporter.

But since we are suing for misleading trailers, can I sue the film company for Bridesmaids? That movie was god awful and unfunny.

This movie is amazing, I didn't think the trailer was misleading at all. Now the movie Cyrus, that had a misleading trailer.

This is the dumbest piece of news ever. What a complete idiot. I can't believe the lady was even able to sue.


The Mythology and Symbolism of Drive

An analytical mind can, and will, find patterns behind everything, whether they are there or not. It is one of the many reasons why films and other forms of fiction are so often dissected and recast to reveal hidden meanings and deeper truths, by those who would think a little too much, a little too hard.

5 Best Film Soundtracks/Scores

There are a lot of important parts of film-making, and the part I find to be the most overlooked is actually one of the most important parts of a film, the soundtrack, a good and bad selection of music can make or break a vital scene in a film. (Note: I chose to include both score and soundtrack when making this list)
