Sometimes when I watch a movie I'm surprised by its similarities to an older movie. I'm not talking about remakes here, just movies that borrow some inspiration and/or pay homage to an older classic. Case in point: Back to the Future has a lot of little things in common with The Absent-Minded Professor.

And the general stereotype of the wacky genius.
Coincidence? I think not. Let's not call it stealing. Let's call it classic inspiration.
