Amazingly, some of the more popular movies in the past 20 years have been immediately copied within months of their release. See which big time flicks have very similar rivals.
Turner & Hooch / K-9 (1989)
The classic “buddy cop” cliche gets turned on it’s head… or tail!
Babe / Gordy (1995)
Look at the cute talking piglet!
Twister / Night Of The Twisters (1996)
Tornadoes make life on the farm less than ideal.
Antz / A Bug’s Life (1998)
Armageddon / Deep Impact (1998)
In order to save the Earth from a devastating collision with an asteroid (or comet, choose your poison) a team lands on the orbiting hunk of rock and detonates explosives to throw it off course.
Dante’s Peak / Volcano (1998)
Volcanos cause lots of frantic exchanges of dialog followed by action sequences.
The Truman Show (1998) / EDtv (1999)
A man’s life is filmed 24/7. This used to be out of the ordinary.
