    In the movie "Waiting for Guffman", the people of Blaine, Missouri celebrate the 150th anniversary of their town by putting on a musical play about Blaine's history. Some residents claim to have seen a spaceship land, so one scene in the play features a singing space alien.

    Sound familiar?

    Yes. But couldn't it be a hilarious take-off on the movie rather than a "ripoff"?? I'm sure they knew what they were doing.
