* Creator/HaroldLloyd's race to stop his girlfriend from marrying another man (who's already married) in ''Film/GirlShy'' ends with a scene just like this. What's interesting is that ''Girl Shy'' is a silent film made forty years before ''The Graduate''.

* Done in ''Film/TheOtherSister'' with Daniel interrupting Carla's sister's wedding in order to profess his love for Carla. It's slightly different, in that he appears from the side of the church and slides down a streamer. It's also noteworthy that Carla and Daniel, in some scenes throughout the movie, are watching ''Film/TheGraduate'' on TV.

* The famous series of UK Renault ads, "Papa and Nicole" ended this way. For added randomness, the groom and guy Nicole runs off with are [[TheSmellOfReevesAndMortimer Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer]].

* One episode of ''KimagureOrangeRoad'' plays this one ''just'' like the movie [[spoiler: except it wasn't a wedding, just the rehearsal - the girl was replacing her older sister, who was the real bride but couldn't attend that session]] also notable for continuing the homage with them running away and the scene on the bus.

* ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' {{OVA}} #6 has Kei (in nun disguise) pounding away from the choir loft at Yuri's wedding. In this case, she isn't trying to move in on either half of the couple. She just needs to warn Yuri that the groom's "family" is on to them.
* Ogami and Sumire's super-combo animation in ''SakuraWars'' shows him crashing her wedding and eloping with her on a moped.
* The LiveActionAdaptation of ''GreatTeacherOnizuka'' has Onizuka do this to a teacher one of his students has a crush on; subverted when she refuses to confess her feelings.
* [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/241443/ This piece of promotional artwork]] (warning: large file) for ''LuckyStar'' parodies the scene from ''TheGraduate'' right down to the costumes.
* Homaged in ''{{Kuragehime}}'''s OP.
* Happens in ''TanteiOperaMilkyHolmes'' when Milky Holmes - Sherlock + Claris and G4 try to stop Sherlock's wedding to Prince Pero. Kokoro, of course, shouts "Dumbass!" into the church.
* The climax of the ''StrawberryPanic'' anime is a stunning example of this trope, despite not technically involving a wedding: [[spoiler: Shizuma]] crashes the Etoile ceremony, declares her love for [[spoiler: Nagisa]], and carries her off to frolick in a meadow, all with the greatest possible {{Melodrama}}.

* TropeNamer, of course, is the wedding scene from ''TheGraduate'', pictured and quoted above.
* Used in ''[[WaynesWorld Wayne's World]] 2'' (Wayne interrupts the wrong wedding).
** Then does it again at the right wedding (being held at the same church as the film it is parodying) Much hilarity ensues.
* Not a wedding, but Sam of ''LoveActually'' does this when he spots his crush from a glass-walled walkway suspended nearby her terminal at the airport. Though the shot is on the other side of the glass and a medium close-up, not even the audience can hear him.
** If you listen really, ''really'' hard... yeah, maybe just my imagination.
* In ''SavingFace'' a woman rescues her mother from marrying a man she isn't in love with in this way.
* SteveMartin does this in ''TheLonelyGuy'', only to find out he's burst in on the wrong wedding. [[spoiler: The bride still calls it off.]]

* Parodied in ''Series/{{Monk}}'', when the main character interrupts two weddings in one episode by yelling the bride's name and banging on a door. Same priest, same bride, mostly the same guests, same guy lets him in.

* Parodied in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' with Grandpa Simpson. He breaks through the glass and falls to the floor below and keeps yelling. This instance takes it a step further by including a ''Sounds of Silence'' parody.
** Quite possibly a reference: In the filming of the wedding scene for ''The Graduate'', the church they filmed the scene in was, in fact, concerned that in banging on the window Dustin Hoffman would do just that, which is why he extends his arms the way he does (he reasoned that just flapping his hands at the end of his wrists like that wouldn't put enough pressure to break) and gives everyone the impression that the director wanted him to be a messianic figure there.
*** Ben using a giant cross as a weapon in the famous scene doesn't really counter that impression.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode "Betrothed"; in the midst of fighting to get to Starfire to tell her that she's being tricked into her wedding, Robin shouts her name from behind a window to attract her attention.
* When {{Daria}} gets assigned to writing a fictional story starring people she knows, her first idea involves Jane interrupting Kevin's and Brittany's wedding and ends with [[CrackPairing Jane and Kevin]] escaping on a bus. The animators even went so far as to [[ArtShift shift to letterbox]] while showing their insecure expressions, probably to simulate a VHS or TV broadcast of ''The Graduate'' in which only the opening and ending credits appear in widescreen.
* Parodied in ''FamilyGuy'' with a Bar Mitzvah.
* HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw had this in an episode where Phil tries to marry Birdgirl. Harvey arrives to stop the wedding, not because he loves Birdgirl, but because Phil is actually her father. However, there is no glass, and Harvey tumbles off the balcony when he tries to pound on it.
* The ''FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' episode "Bride to Beat" does this at the end when Bloo crashes a wedding in which he thought was Mac's.

* In a deleted scene from ''Film/{{UHF}}'', George (Music/WeirdAlYankovic) goes to a dentist's office where his girlfriend works, and sees the receptionist, Elaine. Before he goes in, George bangs on the window shouting "ELAINE!" Cut to Elaine saying "I hate it when he does that."

* Subverted in an interesting way in ''Film/BubbleBoy'', after Jimmy stops the wedding between Chloe and [[JerkAss Mark]] (rather anti-climatically for laughs) and "[[DisneyDeath dies]]" [[spoiler:from not having an Immune System]]. Jimmy's Mother is the one winding up pulling off the signature pose by banging on the window of the Church upon seeing her son die.
