* In ''Disney/RescuersDownUnder'', when Bernard, Bianca and Jake reach McLeach's hideout where he's keeping Cody, Bernard and Bianca start digging under the door to get in while Jake sarcastically says "Have you tried 'Open Sesame'. At that moment, McLeach opened the door and the three rodents were raised into the air on it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeTheSailorMeetsAliBabasFortyThieves'', Popeye pursues the Forty Thieves when they kidnap Olive and Wimpy to their cave and has some difficulty remembering the magic word he overheard them use to open the door. Later, when Popeye is beset with the thieves and can stands no more, he takes out his spinach can and says to it, "Open, says me!" and it magically opens.

* Used amusingly in ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'', when Auto prompts the captain for voice confirmation, he replies "Uhhh..." - which, of course, is accepted.

* ''{{Sneakers}}'' has a voiceprint lock that requires a specific phrase; unlike in ''Shadowrun'', it ends up being possible to beat the lock with a tape recorder.
* ''[[Film/TheBourneSeries The Bourne Ultimatum]]'' has [[TheDragon Noah Vosen]] keep all his incriminating documents in a safe with a voiceprint lock. [[IdiotBall Rather stupidly]], the phrase he uses is his own name [[spoiler:and he answers his phone in the exact same way]].
* At the end of ''TheHotRock'', Dortmunder finally gets the sought-after diamond after a bank guard was given a hypnotic suggestion. He casually utters the key words "Afghanistan banana stand" to the guard - there's some tension as the guard doesn't ''act'' hypnotized, but he does follow instructions and hands over the diamond.

The fact that it sounds an awful lot like [[OpenSaysMe "Open Says-A-Me"]] is a coincidence: the phrase is directly translated from Arabic "Iftaḥ yā Simsim", and the pun doesn't work. The use of "Sesame" ("Simsim" in Arabic) is a just a random word, which makes sense; [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish why would you make the magic words to a secret chamber of riches something anyone could figure out?]]

* Subverted in ''Videogames/TheStanleyParable'': at one point, you are presented with a door that has a voice receiver, and the Narrator tells you the password. However, due to Stanley being a HeroicMime (or the game not supporting voice input, whatever), ''the door cannot be opened''. The Narrator interprets your silence as mockery, and grows more agitated.
