DVD Doppelgangers: Another Woman

I decided to tweak the format of DVD Doppelgangers a little and place the examples side by side instead of several vertical inches apart, something I should have done from the start. See, even DVD cover mockers make mistakes sometimes.

Anyhow, today's entry is Another Woman's Husband (2000) vs Wild Things (1998).

I'm pretty sure Another Woman's Husband is a Lifetime Channel movie, which explains why I've never heard of it. Despite the copycat covers, the two movies have absolutely nothing in common. It's the gripping tale of a woman trying to overcome her fear of water after witnessing her brother drown, while Wild Things is the story of a teacher accused of raping his student.

Another Woman's Husband successfully copies pretty much every element of Wold things; you've got your two sultry sirens peering seductively out of the water, the actor credits strung across the top, even a male figure at bottom center. They even copied the colored banner placement at the top! The only difference between the two is the placement of the title and the font. Kudos to the designer! You copied 80% of an earlier, better layout!

One more thing: On the Wild Things cover, I can't help but notice that Mr. Matt Dillon appears to be auditioning to be the new scoliosis poster child.

Thanks to my pal KW Monster for pointing out these covers to me!
