If the new Ryan Gosling movie Drive wasn't Fast and Furious enough for you, you're not alone--and you may be able to join in a class action lawsuit about it. At least that's the hope of Sarah Deming, who filed suit over the film in Michigan.

Deming's suit alleges the trailer was misleading, containing very little driving or chase action, and seeking to collect some sort of damages, reports WDIV TV. Deming also alleges the film promotes violence against Jewish people.

The suit against the movie's distributor, FilmDistrict, and the Emagine theater where she saw it was filed on September 28th in the Sixth District of Michigan by attorney Martin H. Leaf. Deming hasn't commented on her lawsuit as yet, but seeks a refund on the price of her movie ticket and a halt to the production of "misleading movie trailers" for future films.

While we're no fans of promoting religious violence (or of bad movies and their trailers), perhaps it's time to take a step back and remember: this is just a movie, folks. If you don't like it, give it a negative review on your favorite site and move on.

  1. she is just wanting a fast pay out and lets get real it's just movie, and lady their are more important things then this, granted the movie suck but a lot of what hollywood is putting out does also. but i think you for making me laugh.

  2. the movie was awesome. I understand that the rednecks from the bible belt were expecting fast and furious, so this was a little over their heads. It had too much style and nuance to be appreciated by the stupid masses.

  3. the movie sucked?!?! did you even see it? It was better than any Fast and Furious movie by far.. And i liked the entire FF series.. This lawsuit makes her look like a complete dumb ass

  4. Comment disabled by moderators.

  5. This woman has money and is willing to pay someone hundreds of dollars to get the price of her ticket back. What idiot wouldn't take the money?

    We can't all afford to be as principled as you Tavdoorah.

  6. If you thought this movie sucked, then you need your head checked. This was the best movie of the year so far.

  7. I agree with the false advertisment i even posted it on rotten tomatoes how it was false advertisement I waited and waited to think there will be more action and was none was very dissapointed that I wasted a drive to the theatres as well as my ticket and the pain and suffering I had to sit there and watch this bad movie so i will join her lawsuit about the Jewish thing any movie can be discriminated on Mexicans whites etc..... but for false advertisement YES

  8. "Did she (OR YOU) notice the film festival award there in the trailer? Should have been a dead giveaway that this movie might have been more than just cheap thrills. I deal with this everyday at work. This woman needs to be smacked upside the head." Charlie Ritz that explains it best...

  9. its called entertainment, and at the end there is a disclaimer which means the lawsuit wont stick. The lady in question seems to want her 15 seconds and money for nothing. the frightening thing is that if the law suit passes (and i hope to god it doesnt), then Michael Bay is going to be in a while heap of trouble as it will set up a precident. and no movie with be sacred. I really hope the Judge and jury see sense on this and tell the lady to pull her head out of her proverbial and move on.

  10. Did she notice the film festival award there in the trailer? Should have been a dead giveaway that this movie might have been more than just cheap thrills. I deal with this everyday at work. This woman needs to be smacked upside the head.
