    • Mr. Mom
      The plot involving Homer attempting to impress his boss at the company picnic, and especially the scene in which he attempts to let the old man win the sack race is very similar to a plot development in the 1983 comedy Mr. Mom, in which Michael Keaton throws a track event in order to let his wife's boss win.
