Okay, so apparently some of Richard Linklater’s classmates are suing him for a movie he made over ten years ago (“Dazed and Confused” – one of my all-time favorites) because of the supposedly negative portrayals of their namesaked characters.
Wouldn’t you think if they were REALLY upset they would have filed this a bit earlier instead of waiting 11 years? I mean, if they feel that bad about having their names in the movie, I just think they would have protested a bit earlier.
I’ll bet you ANYthing that 11 years ago when the movie came out they were completely onboard and bragging that Linklater used their names in his movie.
