Cussler loses, studios lose, we all lose

Author Clive Cussler was ordered Tuesday to pay $5 million to Crusader Entertainment — the production company that made the film "Sahara" — for breaching his contract with them by publicly criticizing the film. Likewise, an L.A. jury ruled that the production company owes the writer $8.5 million for not creating a second movie from a Cussler book.

Our question: Why was there no class-action suit filed by people who saw that horrible, horrible film? We want our money back, and we want compensation for pain and suffering.
