Argo trailer
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian media say authorities are planning to sue Hollywood over the Oscar-winning "Argo" because of the movie's allegedly "unrealistic portrayal" of the country.

Several news outlets, including the pro-reform Shargh daily, said on Tuesday that French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in Iran for talks with officials over how and where to file the lawsuit. Coutant-Peyre is also the lawyer for notorious Venezuelan-born terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, known as Carlos the Jackal.

The decision on the lawsuit came after a group of Iranian cultural officials and movie critics screened the film in a closed audience in a Tehran theater late Monday.

Iranian officials in February dismissed "Argo" as pro-CIA, anti-Iran propaganda.

The movie is based on the escape of six American hostages from the besieged U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979.

If this article taught me one thing, it's that Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is French for Gloria Allred.

Iran can argofuckthemselves. (Brilliant topical use of a quote from the film currently in discussion, Argo)

Fuck 'em.

One of the best things about ARGO is that it didn't try and be all Hollywood liberal pussy about the hostage situation. It showed it for exactly what it was: a large group of culturally-retarded fundamentalist lunatics destroyed an American embassy and took the staff hostage.

This lawsuit might be as successful as the one Batman, Turkey leveled against The Dark Knight... Never mind that the city could've sued the 5 films before where the name of their town was actually in the film....

Slow down.

That piece of dog shit not only wasn't the best picture of the year, it wasn't even the best movie the week it was released. I hope Iran sues the beard right off Ben Affleck.

And in non-news, the US government continues to never sue other countries' movies, partly because we love freedom, and mostly because their movies are too shitty for anyone to care about.

This is how you know that whole place has gone to shit. In the good old days, they would've just issued a fatwa on Ben Affleck's head, like Allah intended.

I hope Affleck has a sense of humor. If I was him, I'd find the Jew lawyer with the biggest nose and thickest accent in the world, for this.

That's going to be tough to find in Hollywood.

There will be three protesters outside the building which our soldiers will immediately shoot, except one survives and then goes to CAIR's lawyers. Then the whole movie will lose its power when Ben Affleck gets hanged at the end for being gay.
