Detroit, MI — A Michigan woman who feels she was “tricked” into buying a ticket to the movie Drive has since filed a lawsuit against the film’s distributors on September 27, 2011, reports Entertainment Weekly.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed by Sarah Deming, it complains that the movie trailer misled her into purchasing a ticket to the movie, subsequently prompting her to file the suit.
Entertainment Weekly reported that the lawsuit’s complaints included:
• 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.
The lawsuit is seeking a refund of her movie ticket, because Deming claims the misleading ads are in violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act. In addition, the suit is seeking a notice to the public regarding the “extreme gratuitous defamatory racism, and promotion of violence, directed against members of the Jewish faith.”
