History Repeats Itself

I was talking with Aliza the other day and we made a list of supposedly "new" movies that are actually completely identical to old movies that came out years ago that the movie studios just assume that everyone forgot about. Well, nice try because I didn't forget and neither did Aliza. Below I present to you a list of the identical movies:

1. Tale of Despereaux = Ratatouille/
2. Yes Man = Liar Liar
3. Seven Pounds = Pursuit of Happyness
4. Dreamgirls = that movie with Beyonce that looks like Dreamgirls 2
5. Milk = I Am Sam
6. Doubt = Notes on a Scandal (i.e., Notes on a Sandal)
7. Last Chance Harvey = As Good As It Gets/Something's Gotta Give
8. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button = The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time/Tuck Everlasting
9. Marley & Me = Beethoven
