Poll: Movies That Inspired TV Sitcom Plots

Doesn't that episode reminds you of some movie?

No, I'm not talking of an umpteenth parody of An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) or another use of Psycho (1960) screeching violins, but an entire plot that is inspired by a classic movie. If you can count at least 3 sitcom episodes based on a film (even in a loose way), they're in for the poll...

Overall, which of these movie plots that inspired sitcom episodes worked the best?
