It's the R-rated comedy that keeps on giving. For lawyers. Everyone's favorite legal punching bag, 'The Hangover Part II,' is being sued again, this time by the luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton. The company alleges that a handbag featured in the film is actually a fake. This wouldn't seem like such a big deal except that, as the Hollywood Reporter points out, the scene in question has Zach Galifianakis carrying the bag and stating "Careful, that is ... a Louis Vuitton." The complaint states that Louis Vuitton has been "damaged by consumer confusion."
If you're keeping count, this is the fourth (fourth!) lawsuit brought against the comedy. First, a tattoo artist sued the producers for copyright infringement over the face tattoo Ed Helms' character sports in the film. After that, a stunt man sued for damages due to brain injuries he suffered while shooting a scene. Then there was the guy who claimed the writers stole the idea for the sequel from the man's life story. The first lawsuit was settled out of court; the second two were dropped by the plaintiffs.

For this latest legal snafu, Louis Vuitton probably won't go quietly. After all, their reputation has been irrevocably damaged, or something.
