It's A Wonderful Rip-Off!!,
This review is from: It's a Wonderful Life: 65th Anniversary Edition (includes free poster and artcards) [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)Everyone raves about this being one of the best films ever made so decided to watch it for the first time yesterday. However, the part where George Bailey sees what his home town would be like if he hadn't been born (mostly owned by Mr Potter with bars, casinos, clubs etc) seemed strangely familiar. I then realised that this is a complete rip-off of Back To The Future Part II where Marty returns to the alternate 1985 to find the town is very different (mostly owned by Biff Tannen with bars, casinos, clubs etc - see what I mean?). Can't see why It's A Wonderful Life is considered as a classic when there's nothing here that we didn't see 22 years ago in the second instalment of a REAL classic trilogy. Plagarism at its worst. Avoid.

Perhaps you aren't aware that the original 'It'#s a Wonderful Life' is over 60 years old and predated 'Back To The Future somewhat?

Slasherfreak - your reviews are very funny, thanks - absolutely gutting myself : ) Hamster one is excellent. As is the Kindle one. Highlights how seriously people take amazon reviews. Brilliant.

Cheers ;) Nice to see someone else gets it! Also amazed how many folks 'ave it and, more so, how so many of them think I'M the plonker! Plenty more to come so keep your eyes open. Also thinking of compiling a book!

Thank God for you, S. Haddow. I was beginning to think I was the only one who "got" these joke reviews and could not believe the indignant comments of those who take offence at them. Check out the stream of abuse he receives on his Kindle review, if you haven't already. Unbelievable!
