17 Times The Simpsons Copied Famous Movies

Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

Let's play a game of Guess the Movie, shall we?

1. We'll start off with a simple one. What's the movie?

It was, obviously, The Godfather, Part II (1974). You might want to quit while you're behind if you didn't get that one...

2. In fact, don't go just yet. Here's another easy one.

This scene was in Terminator 2. The days BEFORE Arnie was a U.S. Governor.

Hold on, you should guess the next few pretty easily too. If not, start watching some movies.


E.T. Too easy.

4. You've gotta get this one.

...from the classic Disney film, Lady and the Tramp.

5. King ...?

King Kong, of course.

6. This.

From every James Bond film, ever.

7. Here's the last one that's just too easy.

Ben Hur. I remember watching this in Science Class. Strange.

Right, let's get down to some tougher ones then.

8. Alright, one final easy one then.

From the original Paranormal Activity, released in 2007. Doesn't that make you feel old?

9. Classic Burns.

Classic Grinch.

10. Where did this scene from Itchy & Scratchy come from?

Fantasia. Mind. Blown.

11. This scene from a Treehouse of Horrors episode...

...also bears striking resemblance to one from Fantasia.

12. Who else screams like Grandpa Simpson?

Only Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone (and probably some other people too but we'll ignore them for now).

13. Here's a tough one.

This almost identical image can be found in 2001: A Space Odyssey

14. Following on then...

...with another scene from 2001: Space Odyssey.

15. Houuuaaa (read this in the accent of someone speaking Mandarin)

This was in the original version of the Karate Kid, back when Ralph Macchio was still the lead.

16. Any ideas?

From the 1967 film, the Graduate.

17. We'll end with this one. If you get this right, you get to buy yourself your favourite chocolate bar.

This final scene was brought to you by Dr. Strangelove in 1964.
