5 Kids Movies With Plots Inspired By Their R-Rated Relatives

Filmmakers are always trying to prove that they can make a kid appropriate movie that parents will enjoy as well, and flicks like The Incredibles and Wreck-It Ralph have come pretty darn close.

But these PG movies have something else in common besides their rating- their plots are incredibly similar to some R-rated films.

The Incredibles was heavily influenced by Alan Moore's graphic novel masterpiece The Watchmen, a connection posited by Baltimore Sun writer Michael Sragrow back in 2009 that seems pretty obvious in retrospect.

But would you believe parallels can be drawn between Wreck-It Ralph and Taxi Driver?

It's easy to dismiss these theories as nothing more than a case of every story influencing every other story, but the parallels extend beyond the plot to the very camera shots, story arc and dialog, making them mighty hard to ignore.
