American remakes of good foreign tv shows / movies.
Anyone in Aus seen the Channel 10 promo for Life On Mars? Anyone remember the British show exactly the same (title and everything) that was airing about late 2007 on ABC?
And, not expecting anyone to put their hand up here coz it is a pretty girly movie, but a year or so ago there was a Catherine Zeta-Jones film called No Reservations. Identical to a slightly older German film entitled Mostly Martha, which was actually a highly enjoyable movie with a really cute Italian guy in it.
I hate it how the Americans get all the credit for good plots and good scripts just coz a lot of people don't realise it's been done before in a different country...
