The lack of Joker scenes in "Suicide Squad" has prompted legal trouble, so Kurt Braunohler, Emily Heller and Steve Agee share other cinematic lawsuits. (2:26)

This weekend, Suicide Squad opened to an August record

$133 million box office.

But all's not well withthe super villain super group.

The movie rated an anemic 26%on Rotten Tomatoes,

and the fan reaction has been,I want to say somewhat negative.

Now, I haven't seen it yet.

Now before you say,"(bleep) you, Chris Hardwick.

You're not a nerd. Shut up.You haven't seen it,"

I'm getting marriedin, like, 11 days,

-so I'm a little preoccupiedwith... -(whooping)

-(applause and cheering)-...pledging my love to another.

But apparently, with a two hourand three minute runtime--

I mean the movie, not thewedding-- uh... -(laughter)

Suicide Squad does not include

six seconds as entertainingas the classic Vine

"Back at it againat Krispy Kreme."

Back at it againat Krispy Kreme.

(groaning, laughter)

Yup, back at it again.

(laughter)

The only context we have isthat he's done that before.

-That's all we know.-(laughter)

You know what sucks?

-Jared Leto got cut out of that,too. Uh... -(groaning, laughter)

But now a Scottish filmgoer whoclaims that he drove 300 miles

to London to see Suicide Squad

opening weekendposted on reddit,

he plans to sue Warner Brothersand D.C. for not delivering

on Joker scenes promisedin the trailer.

Jared Leto commentedon the edits

in this very dark interviewwith IGN.

Oh, there were so many scenesthat got cut from the movie,

I-I couldn't even start.

If I die anytime soon,it's probably likely

that it'll...it'll surface somewhere.

-What?! -What?-(laughter)

Legal analysts think that theenraged fan may actually have

a case against Suicide Squad's producers

under the U.K.'s strictfalse advertising laws.

So, comedians,if this sets a precedent,

what's another lawsuitwe might see against a movie?

Kurt Braunohler.

Uh, I'm gonna sue Schindler's List

'cause The Jokerwas hardly in that, either.

HARDWICK:All right. Yeah.

He didn't makean appearance at all.

-It sucked.-Yeah.

All right, Emily Heller.

I'm gonna sue Ghostbusters for ruining my childhood.

But not the new one.The old one. Uh...

(laughter)

Because I don't think

a child should see a man geta blow job from a ghost.

-(laughter)-HARDWICK: All right, points.

-Steve Agee.-Hi, Chris.

I'm suing Suicide Squad

because Jared Leto'sin too much of it.

-(laughter, groaning) -HARDWICK:Jesus Christ. -HELLER: What?

That's not nice.

He's a nice guy.How dare you, Steve Agee!

What did Jared Letoever do to you?

-Stuff.-(laughter)
