Top Movie Rip Offs


The Top Ten

1 Bugs Life vs Ants

Dreamworks just had the habit of taking Disney films and just making uglier and more unpleasant versions of them, Ex. Small Soldiers was the uglified version of Toy Story, Antz was the uglified version of Bugs Life and Shark Tale while not copying the same plot seemed like the uglified version of Finding Nemo, and unlike Disney where throughout the movie you're happy and entertained, during these movies you feel uncomfortable and disturbed. At least now Dreamworks has redeemed them selfs with all the great movies they've been making, while Disney is starting to get their respect back by making films like Frozen and Big Hero 6. At least they're in good spots now

I have loved Bug's Life since I was a little kid. It has to be one of my favorite Pixar films of all time. I watched Antz when I was still young but did not enjoy. Antz tried to make a "mature" version by adding references that, even though weren't inappropriate or something that only adults would understand, were something many would not enjoy. - FirearmsKill

I remember growing up and watching Bug's Life. And I pretty much enjoyed it. And then comes along Ants, A movie by Dreamworks. A movie I didn't pretty much enjoy, I think Bug's Life by Disney and Pixar are better. So Bug's Life wins. - Mumbizz01

Antz October 2, 1998 then A Bugs Life November 25, 1998.

The Newcomers

? E.T. vs Mac and Me

The Contenders

11 The Hunger Games vs Divergent

NO! If you would just read the book you would know they are very different. Of course, maybe your brains are to small to see the dozens of differences.

12 Ratatouille vs Ratatoing

This should be number one. Video Brinquedo always makes terrible rip-offs and why is Antz vs Bugs Life number one? At least both have effort and quality but this one? - Neonco31

I did the same thing here.

Another example of a mockbuster and that rip off is definitely try hard to be best.

13 Frozen vs. X-Men series

Lol, they're two different movies. Do your thinking first - Neonco31

When u think about it?

Ohh heck no

14 Planes vs Cars

How are they ripoffs? there both made by the same studio

15 Mazinger Z vs Robot Taekwon V

Yeah... no. - Not_A_Weeaboo

16 Frozen vs Snow Queen

No. - 445956

17 Tangled vs Tangled Ever After


18 Finding Dory vs Izzie's Way Home

I Hate Izzie’s Way Home

19 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes vs. The Lion King
20 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes vs. The Lion King II

DOTFPOFTA also shares elements with The Lion King's sequel. For example, two opposing worlds coming across together for the first time. Humans are like Simba's pride, and apes are like Scar's. In the end, they have a battle and one dude falls off an edge.

21 Jack and Jill vs. Glen and Glenda

23 Terminator vs. RoboCop
24 The Disney Princess movies vs Little Princess School

I like Trains better than that Japanese Rip-Off Train Tale.

43 Boats vs Anchors Up

Elias is just a Jib Sailboat Rip-Off.
