Lohans Mulling Over Legal Action Against Movie

12/28/2010 11:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Producers of "Dogs in Pocketbooks" -- a movie pretty clearly based on Lindsay Lohan's wild ride -- may have to open their own pocketbooks, because the Lohan clan is considering legal action.

Lydia Hearst

As we told you yesterday, "Dogs" is based on a spoiled brat prone to alcohol and cocaine binges, reckless driving, failed rehab attempts, career-ending partying and ruthless hangers-on. 

Lydia Hearst, Lindsay's spitting image, will star in the movie.

Dina Lohan says the new movie "is definitely based on Lindsay's likeness," and "We have a very strong case.  It's shadowing E*TRADE" -- referring to Lohan's suit against the online brokerage firm which produced a commercial featuring a baby Lindsay.

Now we've learned Lohan's family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, has been contacted by the Lohan family and it seems Ovadia thinks they have a case:  "They are again using her likeness without her being compensated."

Ovadia adds, "Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness."

Dina warns, "Anyone bringing negativity will be dealt with accordingly."

The producers were idiots for trying this. Now they will have to give money away to the Lohans to shut them up. FAIL.

Yeah, no case. Sorry Lohans no free money for this. Well within the use of copyright law. Instead of suing why don't you make yourselves less vulnerable to parody by getting a clue......Mmm?

"..... "Dogs" is based on a spoiled brat prone to alcohol and cocaine binges, reckless driving, failed rehab attempts, career-ending partying and ruthless hangers-on."

Why would Lindsay think this movie is about her?

Odd how Dina is so quick to react to this, yet, when it came to Lindsay's obvious out of control partying ways she always said Lindsay was fine....could it be because this may have a dollar sign attached to it?

So if I become a stripper and use the name "Lindsay", does this mean Dina will sue me?

Anyone bringing negativity? How about stupidity Dina? In that case, you would owe Lindsay millions. "My daughter does not have a drug problem" "My daughter has only been to rehab three times" "My daughter is fine".
Idiot.

Sorry Lohans. You have no legal action against a parody. Legal precedence does not back you on this one. No cash for you!
