->''"Poor Pete Ross: a character so inconsequential, he never even achieved 'sidekick' status. Eventually Ross left the show, and most of us [[TheGarfunkel forgot he was ever a part of it]]. Before that could happen, however, he had to have a spotlight episode in a last-ditch effort to squeeze some substance out of his character. And what says small-town nice guy better than... [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat illegal street racing?]]\\\
None of this makes any sense. Smallville has approximately one street, two signs ('Welcome' and 'Thanks for visiting') and maybe a flea market. Even if we're meant to believe he's 'fallen in with the wrong crowd' that somehow doesn't get caught, the stupidity is compounded when we learn that the cars are [[AppliedPhlebotinum fueled by kryptonite]]. Episodes like Season Three's 'Velocity' were meant to cash in on the popularity of recent movie releases such as ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast and the Furious]]''. It's not the last we see of this ratings ploy...In one of the most blatant knock-offs of a popular movie franchise ever, ''Smallville'' featured an entire episode with [[{{Film/Saw}} a sadistic killer in a creepy mask, elaborate death traps, and a ticking clock on which time is running out]]. When Lex Luthor's father and Ma Kent [[RandomEventsPlot (?!)]] are kidnapped by a deranged psychopath, Clark must come to the rescue before the audience falls asleep."''

->'''Chris''': I think thereís only one way to say it: ''Smallville'' has done an episode that rips off ''Film/TheMatrix'', and it is currently the year 2011.\\
'''David''': Writer Jordan Hawley should actually, seriously consider a new line of work. And Chris, whatís truly amazing about this episode is that it rips off ''The Matrix'' ó itself a gigantic rip-off of Creator/GrantMorrisonís ''[[TheInvisibles Invisibles]]''. If they just skipped the middlemen and ripped off Morrison instead, Iím pretty sure Iíd be singing this episodeís praises.

->''"''Eragon'' is, bar none, the most complete and shameless rip-off of ''Star Wars'' ever xeroxed. Not even ''[[Film/TheManWhoSavesTheWorld Turkish Star Wars]]'' stole as brazenly... The meanie in me says that [[GeorgeLucas Lucas]] could probably be accused of stealing the plot for that from half a dozen samurai movies, but the fan in me [[HypocrisyNod still doesn't care if he did]]. They didn't have hyperdrive in ''Hidden Fortress''!"''

->''"Ugh, I donít wanna review ''{{WesternAnimation/Delgo}}''. This movie is is so derivative it feels like those Mosaic posters where a thousand pictures make up one big conglomerate of a pic...this is not just an '{{homage}}': its a full blown rip off of several specific scenes and movies. I was watching just shouting out the movies where they ripped off the scenes like from ''[[Film/IndianaJones Raiders of the Lost Ark]]'' and ''[[Film/BackToTheFuture Back to the Future II]]''. Yes they ripped off ''Back to the Future II''. The general plot is actually a mish mash of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings In the Name of the King]]'', aaaaand I dunno. ''[[Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial Star Wars Holiday Special]]''? Ok, only joking on that one."''

->''"''Film/TheIsland'' ended up becoming an inauspicious way to kick off a career in movies, particularly when {{DreamWorks}} and [[Creator/MichaelBay (Michael) Bay]] were sued for copyright infringement by the makers of the low budget Ď70s sci-fi film ''[[{{Film/Clonus}} Parts: The Clonus Horror]]''. You may remember the eerie similarities between ''The Island'' and ''Clonus'' being detailed extensively on this very site. And if you donít remember that, you may recall hearing about it on ''Cracked'' when they shamelessly copied my comparison screenshots without permission (itís ironic, because the article about rip-offs is itself a rip-off!)."''

->''"Creator/ShiaLaBeouf recently stole the spotlight by stealing an entire screenplay. He 'plagiarized' the script for his short film ''[=HowardCantour.com=]'' from Daniel Clowes' comic ''Justin M. Damiano'', in the same way settlers 'short-changed' Native Americans for the island of Manhattan. [[InsultToRocks But he paid less]]. He stole the entire comic, scene for scene, line for line, word for goddamn word. It is impossible to overstate how directly he ripped it off. I've used photocopiers that make less direct reproductions. When you read the title "''[=HowardCantour.com=]''," you've already experienced most of Shia's contribution to the project. The only other alterations were things like changing the bagels the characters eat into cookies. That's the level of cinematic insight Shia brings to a creative project: liking cookies."''
