10 Best Films the Dysfunctional Duo Has Poked Fun At

Rick and Morty Season six came with a bang. Though only five episodes of the new season have made it to the small screen, we’ve already seen Morty get trapped in a video game, Rick is finally making headway on the search for the man who killed his family, and we even have a fortune cookie seen almost forcing Jerry to do something unspeakable.

The series, created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, loves to include references to popular films in its episodes, often pointing out a plot hole or finding a way to ridicule them, no matter how popular they are.


Anatomy Park – ‘Jurassic Park’

There are only a few minor differences between Rick Sanchez’s Anatomy Park and John Hammond’s (Richard Attenborough) Jurassic Park. Anatomy Park isn’t set on a beautiful tropical island, but in the body of a homeless man.

Rather than offering insights into dinosaurs, Anatomy Park allows visitors to see the diseases inside the body. However, Anatomy Park boasts the coveted Pirates of the Pancreas ride, which is very dear to Rick. All in all we would rather visit Jurassic Parkbut Anatomy Park is a close, close second.

Improve Morty’s math grade – “Inception”

When Rick finds out his grandson is failing math, he has only two choices. He can either spend time teaching his grandson the basics of the subject, or he can create one beginning Device and travel into Morty’s teacher’s dream to spread the idea that Morty deserves an A. We’re talking Rick Sanchez here, so of course he’s going for the crazier option.

Not only do you dive into the dreams of Morty’s math teacher, you also dive into the dreams of Morty’s math teacher. It might be a little difficult to wrap your head around, but then again, it is beginning.

Scary Terry – “A Nightmare on Elm Street”

Diving through dreams, Rick and Morty find themselves in a sordid world where they are being pursued by Scary Terry, a man with small swords on his fingers. If this sounds a little familiar, that’s because the character is clearly based on Freddy Krueger A nightmare on Elm Street Villain who has knives on his fingers.

However, unlike Freddy Krueger, Scary Terry actually has a nice side, and after Rick and Morty help him find her, he agrees to help them escape from the dreams they are trapped in.

Purge Planet – ‘The Purge’

Rick is thrilled when he and Morty arrive on a planet in search of mop water and quickly discover that a purge is taking place later that evening. According to the premise of The purge Movies, a mixed quality franchise, all crimes become legal for twelve hours.

Morty is initially reluctant to take part, but after reading a terrible script, he loses his temper and gives in to temptation. As so often with Rick and MortyA lot of graphic violence ensues, and when it’s all over the planet will arguably be in worse shape than when the couple arrived.

Space Beth Returns – “Star Wars”

However, Rick is reluctant to get involved in the fight against the Galactic Federation to avoid his adventures becoming too similar to the plot of war of stars. However, Space Beth’s return turns the Galactic Federation’s gaze to Earth, forcing Ricks to lend a hand.

There are plenty of jokes poking fun at the beloved original trilogy, including an advert for the Federation’s planet-destroying machine that “doesn’t have a hole that blows the whole thing up if you shoot it.” Rick may have been frustrated, but we’re very glad he did war of stars Consequence.

Heistotron – “Oceans 11” or another Heist film

Given the seemingly ridiculous nature of heist movies, it’s a surprise we had to wait until season four Rick and Morty to tackle the genre. The writers certainly don’t pull any punches, poking fun at everything from the crew’s makeup to the many often nonsensical twists and turns in the third act.

Given that, there could soon be more heist tropes for the comedy series to tease Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling have reportedly signed to play in one Ocean’s Eleven Prequel set to be directed Jay Roach.

Serpent Planet – ‘Terminator’

Have you ever wondered what The Terminator Movies would be like being set on a planet full of snakes? Well, now you don’t have to. By attempting to rescue a Serpent astronaut and then sending an imposter back to her planet in his stead, Morty is inadvertently targeted by Serpent Terminators.

What follows is absolute chaos. The Smith household is infested with snakes, half of which want to kill Morty and half of which want to kill him. However, the best moment of the episode comes when Rick adds four legs to a snake, causing it to slide and slide across the floor.

A Wet Egg – ‘Alien’

Although Morty had warned his grandfather not to look at a particularly wet egg, the scientist ignored his grandson’s advice, and the pair ended up with a face-hugger wrapped around their heads. These creatures are not identical to the terrifying Face-Huggers from the extraterrestrial franchise, but their designs are eerily similar.

Thanks to a handy toothpick, the aliens are unable to get Summer under their control, resulting in her becoming their leader. Of course, the aliens aren’t too pleased to learn they’ve been duped, and Rick and Morty unleash an insane amount of destruction before finally escaping.

Post-apocalyptic world – Mad Max: Fury Road

Desperate to escape the embarrassment of Jerry and Beth’s ongoing divorce, Rick, Morty and Summer travel to a post-apocalyptic world similar to the world they are seen in Mad Max: Fury Road. After stealing a gem, Rick leaves his grandchildren behind, allows Summer to fall in love with a helmeted warrior, and gives Morty, who’s armed with a muscular arm, a chance to vent his frustration by fighting anyone who does gets too close to him.

Though they both eventually grow weary of their lives in the post-apocalyptic world, it provided the perfect opportunity for both of them to come to terms with their parents’ divorce.

Blips and Chitz – Die Hard

A trip to Blips and Chitz usually guarantees a fun-filled afternoon of the best arcade games from across the galaxy. Unfortunately, on her last visit to the arcade, Morty remains trapped in a terrorist attack in Roy. Rick must find him before his grandson is lost forever, leaving Summer alone to save everyone by doing a Die Hard.

Although she hasn’t seen the film, her lack of knowledge actually helps her. The terrorist is actually a Die Hard Superfan, and the fact that Summer hasn’t seen the movie makes her unpredictable and impossible to stop. It may not be her Bruce Willisbut it’s just as effective when it comes to stopping terrorists.
