    Yep, Macgyver ripped the classic The Italian Job movie. First season, episode three "The Thief of Budapest", the producers clearly ripped scenes from the classic movie The Italian Job. It was well done, and pretty cool to watch, but just wish they done something original.


    Any other TV show or movie ripped something from somebody else like this?
    Not only ripping it, but splicing it into there own film?

    ........That series is almost 20 years old now. It's not like it's a recent event or it really matters. They took several liberties, heck mythbusters did an episode where they disproved several famous episodes science as mearly Hollywood fakery.

    What does that got to do with what I said?
    What I meant was that Macgyver stole scenes right out of the movie The Italian Job. Not just copying some ideas, but actually put scenes into their own episode.
