Is It OK For A Movie Trailer To Lie? Or, Why Friends With Kids Is Definitely Not Bridesmaids 2Will Leitch3/06/12 5:10pmFiled to: Grierson & LeitchEmeritusMoviesThe projectorNewsfriends with kidsadam scottKristen Wiigmaya rudolphJon HammTop401EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkLast October, a Detroit woman named Sarah Deming filed suit against FilmDistrict for its misleading advertisements for the film Drive. Her claim was that the film's trailers had led her to believe the film was about driving rather than, you know, Ryan Gosling stomping in the orbital bones of various Angeleno miscreants. (This is a film in which Christina Hendricks is shot in the face. Suffice it to say, Drive was not messing around.) She also claimed the film was anti-semitic, but no one remembers that part; they only remember the deceitful-advertising aspect. The suit was dismissed immediately, and it has taken on a bit of "I didn't know the coffee was going to be hot!" notoriety.
