The line "based on true events" has become a common phrase around Hollywood. From the likes of 21
and The Pursuit of Happiness
, it seems that every director is just waiting to get their hands on a real story. However, like some things in Hollywood, many of these 'real' claims are a bogus lie. In fact, most of them are. From Rudy
to Lean on Me
, feature films have been falsely attaching the phrase in hopes that it will inspire a growth in box office receipts.
