Forget About It is a 2006 film directed by BJ Davis[2]

Forget About It is owned by Big Screen Entertainment Group and was released January 8, 2008 in the United States by Allumination Filmworks.

Starring Burt Reynolds, Robert Loggia, Charles Durning, and Kimberley Kates, it tells the story of a trio of retired military servicemen who find a suitcase of money near their Arizona trailer park. Little do they know it belongs to a mobster in the witness protection program. The old men's neighbor is played by Raquel Welch.

Forget About It was screened at the New Jersey Film Festival in May 2006, where it won Best Film. It premiered in Waterbury, Connecticut and Phoenix, Arizona on October 27, 2006.

Controversy[edit]

In 2008, Gregory Conley posted that received legal warnings from BJ Davis and Julia Davis regarding a negative review of Forget About It. On January 13 Gregory posted that he'd received a Digital Millennium Copyright Act complaint from Julia Davis, and on January 14 posted an explanation attributed to Stephen Eckelberry of Big Screen Entertainment.[3] There were some outraged posts made to websites such as Wired News[4] and Techdirt.[5]
