Prey4reign: Personally I blame the failure of the public school system for people's inability to discern how much wiggle room is conferred by "based on" preceding "a true story."
SpdrJay: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.....
"Also: Disney was a notorious chain smoker, which was entirely left out of the movie, complying with modern Hollywood's unwritten rule that only bad guys can smoke."
Well, except for the fact that he smokes in the movie, albeit only one scene (when Travers bursts into his office his staff try and stop her, because Disney is smoking)

wildcardjack: Was Fear And Loathing based on a true hallucination?
leisurejack: Doesn't Fargo start with "Based on a true story"?If a movie is good, it's good regardless if it's true it not. And if you go see Hollywood movies to learn history, you're an idiot.
LonMead: SpdrJay: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.....Naw, Lucas took a lot of liberties with that story...
