    Or even a docu-drama. It's a drama "inspired by factual events." Off the top of my head, examples of other movies inspired by factual events would include "Citizen Kane" with its terribly unfair depiction of Marianne Davies (if you assume Susan Alexander is Marianne Davies) or "Singin' in the Rain" when we know for a fact that people in early Hollywood almost never broke into song.

    "Titanic" is actually a far better comparison than James Frey, because he was actually claiming to tell a true story. "Titanic" was pure fiction inspired by a historical event. I'm sure people who know a lot about what happened on the real Titanic could gives us a long and detailed list of many, many things Cameron's movie got very, very wrong.

    Now residing in Van Nuys, but "LaBobsterofVanNuys" isn't funny and besides, Van Nuys is really part of Los Angeles
