It's all but impossible to tell a truly original story. After over a century of cinema, it's safe to say that virtually every possible premise has already been covered. But some movies don't even attempt to be even a little original, stealing their plots almost wholesale from films that came before. Here are some classic movies that are all but carbon copies of other films...

Ridiculous Actor Demands That Forced Movie Details To Change

But besides those, an unblemished trilogy is a shockingly rare thing. Plenty of franchises go straight downhill after the opening chapter. What's even worse, though, is a trilogy that's held back from perfection by a single entry. It's maddening for fans of the story being told, and more often than not, it denies fans the story structure or resolution they desire. With all that in mind, here's a look at some memorable trilogies ruined...
