Say you're a Hollywood veteran who is spending a quiet evening on the internet. Suddenly you stumble across the synopsis for a Bollywood movie that looks suspiciously like the popular film you made three years ago. In fact, [[{{Plagiarism}} it's the exact same premise]]. And it was released to theaters a year ago. Why haven't you heard anything about this until now? After watching the DVD, you discover that it's a garbled version of your film, where everyone is [[CrowdSong singing and dancing]], and the sex scene is replaced with [[SexySoakedShirt a walk in the rain]]. What the hell?

* ''Er ist wieder da'' (Germany, 2015), from the book of the same name (meaning "He's back again"), was remade in Italy in 2018 with ''Sono tornato'' ("I'm back"). The main difference is that in the German film UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler is the one who's back, while in the Italian one it's UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini.
