Not To Be Confused With... #5

If you're looking for a way to get sued by a major motion picture studio as quickly as possible, why not try a bit of intellectual property theft? In an utterly shameless move that will actually probably work at gaining an audience to see the film, the makers of A Good Old Fashioned Orgy have created this impressively plagiaristic poster that looks more than a little bit familiar.

Same big glowy font? Check. Chubby guy with a beard and sunglasses? Check. Middle guy wearing a brown polo shirt? Check. As far as I can tell, the biggest change they've made is switching out the baby for an inflatable pink flamingo which, let's be honest, probably isn't going to have much of an impact on the film's storyline. I suppose you can't blame them, this isn't the first time The Hangover's been plagarised with negative consequences. I mean, did you see The Hangover Part 2? Badum Tish.

If A Good Old Fashioned Orgy seems like your kind of film, it'll be arriving straight to DVD sometime later this year, thankfully with a less lawsuit-y cover.
