David Manning Controversy

This film was one of five films that were involved in a scandal by its parent company, Sony Pictures, involving being "reviewed" by a fictitious critic named David Manning in an attempt to increase marketability, the others including Hollow Man, The Animal, A Knight's Tale, and Vertical Limit.[1][2][3]
