If it's crap ... We'll tell you
As it turns out, that wild, drug-induced party in 'The Hangover II' is yielding consequences for more than just the characters in the movie. The filmmakers are currently being sued by an amateur screenwriter who claims nearly the entire plot of the 2011 sequel to 'The Hangover' is stolen from a script he had written about his own life experiences. The plaintiff, Michael Alan, apparently wrote a treatment based on his misadventures traveling from the U.S. to Asia to marry his Asian girlfriend and claims that his ex-wife leaked the treatment to 'The Hangover II' filmmakers. He is also accusing them of defamation of character in that they added drug use and sex with transsexual prostitutes to his story.
First that lady sues the filmmakers behind 'Drive' because it wasn’t enough like 'The Fast and the Furious' and now this guy is suing because someone made a movie about people traveling from America to Asia which he also did? You’ve got to be kidding me. My favorite part of this story is that he’s suing them for stealing his life story, but then also for defaming him with all this raunchy extra content. How boring was his story to begin with? And I’m sure major Hollywood studios are in the habit of accepting scripts from women they don’t know as part of divorce revenge plots.
Is it just me, or does this lawsuit seem a bit frivolous?
