This is an example of what I dislike about Hollywood. Apparently there are talks going on concerning a movie deal with the "runaway bride." The woman fakes her own kidnapping, breaking a few laws in the process, and yet she gets to profit from the whole situation. Welcome to America. It's kind of like that stupid family in the 90's who took a shortcut after all the warnings and road closures told them not to and then they got stuck in the snow and lost a few toes due to frostbite. They got a made for tv movie starring Doogie Howser and several million dollars from it.
The secret to success in America isn't hard work and dedication a la Horatio Alger; it's doing something so phenomenally stupid that people are willing to shell out millions of dollars to tell it over and over again.
