Michael Alan Rubin is suing Warner Brothers, arguing that the plot of The Hangover Part II was stolen from a script he wrote about his 2007 honeymoon in Thailand and India. He claims that the movie also constitutes an “exploitation of [his] private real life.” Which begs the question, how much dignity would his life have to be exploited in the first place if he truly spent that much time with a monkey in a cutoff denim vest?
Rubin is also suing for defamation, claiming that “the filmmakers suggested the inference that he was under the influence of drugs when he ditched his girlfriend and proposed to a male-to-female transexual prostitute.” This one really gets me. How dare they suggest he indulged in drugs? He was TOTALLY SOBER when he proposed to that transexual prostitute! C’mon, Hollywood.
