If your life was basically a series of incredibly embarrassing and humiliating episodes culminating in your newlywed wife's refusal to share a room with you on your honeymoon because you're so pathetic, chances are you would probably want to keep that under your hat. You know, what happens in Vegas, etc.
But that's not the approach one man is taking, because he claims that "The Hangover Part II" is a complete rip-off of his own life -- and he wants everyone to know it. Oh, boy.
Sure, "The Hangover Part II" has already been the subject of multiple weird lawsuits (such as the one where a tattoo artist sued over the use of Mike Tyson's signature ink), but this one has to be the strangest yet. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Alan Rubin claims that the story for "The Hangover Part II" was based on a screenplay he wrote called "Mickey and Kirin" -- which detailed his his own disastrously failed wedding to a Japanese bride.
And that's not all. Though Rubin hasn't yet presented evidence to back up his claims -- he says he filed a copy of his "Mickey and Kirin" script with the Writers Guild of America after returning from a stint as a Bollywood actor -- he's also suing for defamation of character because "he believes 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 transsexual prostitute."
They say that truth is stranger than fiction. If that's true, then we can't wait to see whose life inspires "The Hangover Part III."
