* Parodied in one issue of ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'' where it looks like this is happening, but it's just the cheap calendar Homer bought falling apart.
-->'''Homer:''' Lousy calendar! The glue never holds up past March!

* Several decades pass in the first few minutes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''.
* The song "Strange Things" from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' shows Andy gradually abandoning Woody in favor of Buzz Lightyear.
* Creator/RalphBakshi puts a notable one of these in his animated ''WesternAnimation/TheLordOfTheRings''. "Seventeen years passed in the Shire..." the narrator solemnly informs us. Cue image of the Shire going through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter...repeatedly...and eventually sped up to near strobe-like swiftness.
* Several in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', though none of these montages provide any clues how much time is passing. They could have taken place in a number of days or even years. The plant EVE was carrying was only starting to dehydrate when it arrived on the Axiom, which would have taken less than a week in real life, but it's possible EVE has a built-in stasis field since the film implies seasons have passed.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', Maria doesn't get one, but Manolo and Joaquin share one that illustrates them growing from boys to men in San Angel.

* There is one in ''Blindness'' except the camera sweeps through the scene.
* ''CityOfGod'' uses this to show the history of drug-dealing in an apartment.
* In ''TheHudsuckerProxy'', during the montage of Norville's invention being made, there are periodic shots of the door of the marketing department as they come up with names for the new product. The secretary in front of the door is reading ''WarAndPeace''. By the last shot, when they finally come up with a name, she's reading ''AnnaKarenina''.
* ''PrideAndPrejudice'' (2005), where Lizzy Bennet seems to be sitting on a swing for several months.

* In the Disney comedy ''Rocket Man'', the main character falls asleep inside a stasis chamber made for a monkey (the monkey has taken the main character's chamber) preceding a montage of space nebulae, before then showing him waking up and finding that he hasn't even been asleep for a whole ''day'' (out of the many months of stasis intended).

* Parodied in {{Rugrats}} in which we view a street apparently cycling through various seasons with rain, snow, sunshine and so on. Then a character comments on the crazy weather they've had this week.

* In the 1960 American FilmOfTheBook of ''TheTimeMachine'' by Creator/HGWells, the protagonist sees a dummy in the window of a fashion store across the street go through changes of clothes and fashions in rapid succession.
** In the 2002 remake, one of the most awe-inspiring scenes is when the protagonist is knocked out by an impact as he's leaving the BadFuture and cranks the time machine into full gear. He sleeps as millennia change around him. A new Ice Age forms around him. Ice then melts, and things start growing again.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' does it ''twice''. First one is near the end of ''Lay Down Your Burdens''. After hearing the news of [[spoiler: Cloud 9's destruction, President Baltar]] wearily puts his head over the table and the camera slowly closes up while a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwHh3NNn_IQ song]] begins to play. Suddenly, there is light coming in from the windows and the camera pans back to reveal that [[spoiler: a year has passed and Colonial One is grounded on New Caprica]].
