* The ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' adventure ''A Funny Thing Happened At Carousel #5'' is pretty much a ChooseYourOwnAdventure version of ''Film/WhatsUpDoc'', even having [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of most of the cast as Non-Player Characters.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' episode "Die Semi-Hard" was a thirty-minute borderline ShotForShotRemake of ''Film/DieHard''. Justified because the framing story is Cleveland actually telling "Die Hard" as a story to pass time while he's posing on a Nativity scene.
