Underdog ticks off Rhode Island governor

underdogThe live-action Underdog movie has been shooting in Providence, Rhode Island, and as part of the shoot, crews have had to gussy up the Statehouse and surrounding elements to make everything fit with the theme of the movie. That's par for the course when a film crew descends on your town, but the crew also replaced Rhode Island's state flag with a flag for a fictional city, and Governor Don Carcieri took offense and demanded that the flag be removed. I think someone forgot to tell the governor that the movie is based on a fictional character who exists in a fictional world, and is not, as he must have assumed, based on the true-life tale of a rhyming canine who can fly.
