I just realized it's basically the same story!

I just realized The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is basically the same story as It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.  For certain values of "basically".

You?

I was hoping I'd started a thread of people naming stories they realized are basically the same as other stories in movies or TV.  Either people didn't get the hint, or don't think that's an interesting thing to observe, or think all stories are different.

Aren’t all stories “the stranger comes to town” or “person arrives in a new place?”

Say, aren't those both the same?

They’re told from a different point of view.

No.  Neither of those 2 movies I mentioned fit either of those.

a retelling of a story is ages old... just ask Shakespeare.

on that note....
