'The Hills Have Thighs' and a Little Porn

3/23/2010 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you tuned into Cinemax or The Movie Channel at 1:30 AM to watch a movie called "The Hills Have Thighs" ... you'd expect to see a softcore porn, right? Not the guy who's suing ...

James "Bubba" Cromer made a smut-free comedy called "The Hills Have Thighs" in 2008. He saw listings for his movie to play on Cinemax and TMC ... so he called everyone he knew to make sure they all tuned in ... including a member of the House of Representatives.

But his movie didn't play. Instead, his friends and family watched a soft-core porn version of 'THHT."

In his lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Bubba claims he was subjected to "extreme humiliation, mortification and emotional distress." He's suing HBO and Showtime -- which own Cinemax and TMC, respectively -- for unspecified damages.

Lucky he didn't produce "Bones."

What BS. The cable companies don`t just pick movies at random and air them. "Bubba" would have been contacted beforehand and had to sign a contract specifying airtimes, royalties, etc. TOTAL BS, Bubba !!!

I actually did turn to that thinking it was a comedy. The description was for the other guys movie, not skinimax. I shoulda known better... 5 minutes into it, all i had seen was a guy getting some from a woman with the worst boob job i've ever seen, and 2 fugly chicks dancing around a fire. Not exactly funny, at least not haha funny...

Bubba Cromer is a well known attorney in the Columbia, SC area. When I was in school at the University of SC (where he went to law school) the story was that he moved out to CA after graduating in 1989 and passed the CA bar on the first try. He's still listed as an inactive member of the CA bar and is an active member of the SC bar.

A friend of mine is an actress in his movie and told me it was going to be on. So I did see the movie listing - the description was for the Bubba Cromer movie, not the soft porn flick. Does that mean he has a case? That, I don't know.
