* ''WesternAnimation/{{Frozen|2013}}'' is "inspired by" Creator/{{Hans Christian Andersen}}'s ''Literature/TheSnowQueen''. Both of these works feature a queen with ice powers and a girl who goes on a dangerous journey through a winter landscape to find the Snow Queen in order to save an estranged and depressed childhood friend, but the reasons why the friend has to be saved, how the girl saves them, how the two characters had come to know each other and how they came to be estranged, the course of the heroine's journey, and the characters she encounters all differ significantly to the point that the two stories end up being, at best, extremely distant. (Most notably: the childhood friend and the Queen are different characters in ''The Snow Queen''; in ''Frozen'', they're the same person.)

* ''Film/VowsOfDeceit'' (aka ''Deadly Matrimony'') - according to the [[http://www.marvista.net/catalog_items/1161 Marvista Entertainment website]] - was "inspired by an unbelievable true story". The central plot, a con artist who marries multiple women to steal their money, is ''somewhat'' plausible. The part where the wives team up and hire a private detective? Maybe. But the SlasherMovie killer in a beekeeper mask? The bizarre climatic WeddingDay brawl between undercover bridesmaids and psycho hubby? Unbelievable indeed.
