12 Movies with Similar Plots That Make Us Want to Say, “Find the Differences”

After watching both of the Snow White movies mentioned in #1, I felt like they should have swapped the characters, as the Evil Queen of one with the Snow White of the other. I decided neither were enough to make them a favorite movie as I didn’t feel like they were the right character fits for their counterpart.

Okay- so the ORIGINAL The Parent Trap (1961) plot: “The Parent Trap is a story about teenage twins on a quest to reunite their divorced parents.” Quite possibly both of the modern ones mentioned were inspired by Disney’s movie in 1961. Also- as we know, the Olsen Twins were actually twins with a large following (1990s my best friend was in the fan club and I just watched everything they starred in) and did plenty of things about being twins after playing a single character on Full House (starting as babies of course.) On occasion I forget that authors of articles can in fact be younger than I am and still be old enough to be successful- not sarcasm just saying I forget what generations are actually adults now, while I am 33.

As a lover of sci-fi/fantasy (and what stems from an idea of human nature in the future that begs the questions of population control, survival instincts, those in power finding ways to “nudge” society to do their dirty work for them.. etc.) I definitely agree with the criticism of these genres having many of the same plots- it almost feels as if they use the same “laws” and are not always an “original” seeming set of aliens, planets, cultures, technology, etc. It’s almost to say that we may have a limit to what we think humans can digest/what motivates or angers them/ or what we have been conditioned to feel either may be plausible or what surely could never happen. (Ethics may come into play, it definitely does to me and there are a handful of concepts I cannot stomach and never wish on the human race- i.e Hunger Games, Alien, or any negative/dangerous encounters with anything outside of our atmosphere) I happen to like Aliens (the movie) and do not like Hunger Games. These future-based movies definitely make me never want to go to space or encounter any form of monster. I also enjoy Doctor Who but care too much about my loved ones to ever hope the character exists- what follows is so much pain. I do like the seemingly unpopular idea that we have the choice (decency even) to learn about new places and creatures before jumping to conclusions- while having the discernment to know what is truly evil and cannot infect us.
