Movies Based On a Not-So-True Story


I just read a great article entitled 7 Movies Based on a True Story (That Are Complete Bullshit).  It's a good read, but be warned.  It may shatter your entire belief system.

A number of the films in their group of seven are amongst my favourites of all-time.  Rudy, The Pursuit of Happyness, Lean on Me, Good Morning, Vietnam and The Hurricane are all flicks I dig, but they aren't as based on a true story as you were led to believe.

Here's their 7:

  • The Pursuit of Happyness
  • 21
  • Lean On Me
  • Rudy
  • Victory (AKA Escape to Victory)
  • Good Morning, Vietnam
  • The Hurricane
