* ''Franchise/IndianaJones''' spiffy fedora, which he never leaves behind [[IndyHatRoll even when he's about to be crushed by slowly descending doors]]. Many fans know it simply as "The Hat". The real hat was a custom job by Herbert Johnson for the original 3 films, with a subtly different hat each time. The hat for ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' was made by Adventurebilt, which got its start making replica hats for fans.

Added DiffLines:

* Disney/TheAristocats has lots of characters with Nice Hats - even though they're all animals.
** Roquefort the mouse wears a nice red one, matching his coat.
** The geese twin sisters Abigail and Amelia wear hats, with a flower on them, and tied around their necks with a ribbon; one of them blue, the other pink (that's a good thing, so we can tell them apart, as they're otherwise AlwaysIdenticalTwins).
** Their uncle, goose Waldo, wears a dark green hat.
** Human Edgar has one that doesn't look very remarkable, but he loses it to the dog Napoleon, who wears it for a while.

[[AC:Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'' has several Nice Hats: 1's bishop hat, 7's skull-helmet, and 2's combination candle holder and eyeshield.
* Fievel Mousekowitz' hat from ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''. It's apparently passed down through the family line (As explained by his father), and so iconic that possession of it is able to convince Papa (Who had spent the movie refusing to admit his son might have survived being thrown overboard and getting his hope up) that Fievel is alive. It somehow gains the ability to be unfolded into a cowboy hat in the sequel.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'':
** Joao has a nice bowler hat.
** La Muerte boasts an absolutely ''enormous'' one, bedecked with candles, marigolds, feathers and skulls, as par due to being inspired by ''La Calavera Catrina''. If she weren't a god, there is no way that thing would stay on her head. It also [[ExpressiveAccessory reacts to her emotions]]. The candles turn into flares when she is furious, and Roman Candles when she is passionately happy.
** Carmelo Sanchez wears an Aztec headdress which identifies him being of native Mesoamerican origin.
** Both of the Adelita Twins wear impressive looking sombreros.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBoxtrolls'', the members of the White Hat Council, the ruling body of Cheesebridge, wear very tall white hats as a status symbol; Snatcher and his lackeys wear similar red hats, and his obsession with moving up in the world includes getting a spot on the council and a hat of his own for wiping out the Boxtrolls.
* The Japanese Academy hat worn by Coraline of ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' is apparently very popular within the fandom. The hat was based on a hat that director Henry Selick bought for his son while on a trip to Japan.
* The hat in the ''Sorcerer's Apprentice'' sequence of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. (And it seems to have magical powers that let the Sorcerer cast at least some of his spells.)
* Mrs. Calloway in ''Disney/HomeOnTheRange''. It's her BerserkButton, and she gains a love interest (albeit a weird one) when he compliments it.
* King Julien's [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100130204741/penguinsofmadagascar/images/thumb/9/9d/KingJulien-01.jpg/284px-KingJulien-01.jpg crown]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''.
** [[spoiler:He's got a closet full of them.]]
* Doris the bowler hat in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' might qualify, if by "nice" you mean, "stylish and impressive", and don't mind that whole [[spoiler:EvilOverlord]] issue.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': Sandy Claws's red hat. Not awesome, you say? Consider that out of all the things blown up by the anti-aircraft shells, '''the hat was the only thing to remain intact'''. That is one badass hat.
* The magic portal hat(s) in the [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Pixar short]] ''WesternAnimation/{{Presto}}'' Not one awesome hat, but two!
* Dr. Facilier had a nice hat in ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', being modelled on the dapper [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loa voodoo gods]] Papa Legba aka Baron Samedi. He also had nice Hat Hair.
* Disney/RobinHood and his merry men all wear [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/6-wgjs5Pp-4/0.jpg nice hats]].
* Even the cowboys in non-western {{film}}s like ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''. [[TheHero Woody]] spends an entire scene of the second movie searching for his hat and in the third, [[spoiler:[[BigBad Lotso]] shows it to the other toys to convince them that [[TheHero Woody]] had died trying to escape Sunnyside.]]

[[AC:Live-Action]]
* The agents of ''Film/TheAdjustmentBureau'' all rock some seriously nice [[http://www.esquire.com/cm/esquire/images/Gl/esq-adjustment-bureau-hats-030411-xlg.jpg fedoras]] [[spoiler:that let them travel through a secret PortalNetwork]].
* The MadHatter in ''Film/AliceInWonderland2010'' naturally has a ''very'' nice hat that seems to exist solely to cause cosplayers agony when it's not being used as a form of transportation.
** Suffice to say that if he takes off the hat, the odds are good that he's about to do something incredibly risky or more crazy than usual ([[spoiler:sacrificing himself to the Red Knights so that Alice can escape, letting Chessur take his place at the execution while he sneaks around behind the Red Queen, and dueling the Knave, to name a few]]).



* Amongst the reasons for one to watch ''Film/MyFairLady'': Creator/AudreyHepburn, fantastic songs, Awesome Sets and [[NiceHat Fabulous Hats]]. For the latter, [[http://marziucciaaa.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/audrey_hepburn_my_fair_lady.jpg check this out.]]
* A wonderfully ridiculous one from ''Film/LoveBeforeBreakfast''. Creator/CaroleLombard [[http://www.doctormacro.com/Images/Lombard,%20Carole/Annex/Annex%20-%20Lombard,%20Carole%20(Love%20Before%20Breakfast)_01C.jpg rocks it]].
* The entire plot of short film ''Film/TheNewYorkHat'' revolves around a fancy hat bought for a young woman by a kindly minister, and the unfounded gossip that is provoked when the townspeople see the woman with the hat.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'':
** ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'': Captain Jack Sparrow ''really'' likes his leather tricorn. To the point that, when Jack tells the crew to leave his fallen-overboard hat behind near the beginning, they ''know'' something is seriously amiss. [[spoiler: Jack just learned that Davy Jones has sent his pet kraken on a seek-out-and-destroy mission, and Jack's the target.]]
** ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'':
*** Jack suggests an alliance with Barbossa. Offering to buy him a really big hat seals the deal.
*** At the end, Will acquires a hat with a big {{swashbuckl|er}}ing feather, lampshaded by Jack in a possible TropeNamer as he bids adieu to his captors. [-"And Will... NiceHat."-]
** Barbossa himself has a ''really'' nice hat. It never once leaves his head in the first three movies, and in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides'', it symbolizes [[spoiler: his return to piracy from privateering.]] Geoffrey Rush, who plays Barbossa, does ''not'' take it well when his hat keeps getting blown off in the HilariousOuttakes of ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd''. ''YE BLEW OFF MY HAT, YE [[SoundEffectBleep BLEEP]]!''
* Even the cowboys in non-western {{film}}s like ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''. [[TheHero Woody]] spends an entire scene of the second movie searching for his hat and in the third, [[spoiler:[[BigBad Lotso]] shows it to the other toys to convince them that [[TheHero Woody]] had died trying to escape Sunnyside.]]
* ''Film/DickTracy'' had his yellow fedora that matched his trench coat. The novelization of the film said he actually had dozens of them, as they tended to be ruined often in field work, and whenever he had to replace one, he saved the ruined one for a friend who collected them.
* ''Franchise/IndianaJones''' spiffy fedora, which he never leaves behind [[IndyHatRoll even when he's about to be crushed by slowly descending doors]]. Many fans know it simply as "The Hat".
** In one scene in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', he thinks he's lost it and he has a moment of silence for it. The same film has a flashback in the beginning that explains where he got it in the first place (along with many other traits he is known for).
** In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', picking up and putting on his hat is the first and last things he's shown doing on screen, both times with his theme playing, symbolizing his status as "Indy" or "hero".
** There is a debunked urban legend that the hat was stapled to Creator/HarrisonFord's head. (Started, presumably, by an outtake in which Ford jokingly put the hat on his head and then applied a staplegun (empty). He did have to use [[DuctTapeForEverything adhesive tape]], though.
** The reason the hat never comes off is that [[Creator/StevenSpielberg the director]] simply didn't want to have to deal with the nearly-inevitable continuity errors which would have come along with losing the hat. Thus, the Improbably Sticking Hat.
* [[BattleButler Oddjob's]] razor-sharp bowler hat in the ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''.
** We haven't mentioned that Bond has some nice hats too. Some early films show him throwing it into Moneypenny's office and it landing on the hat-stand. One can only imagine how many takes they must have done to get that shot.
* The fedoras Jake and Elwood wore in ''Film/TheBluesBrothers''. Notable in that Jake never removed his during the course of the film, and Elwood doffed his only twice.



* ''Film/MillersCrossing'' is all about guys in {{Nice Hat}}s. Near the beginning of the film, the fedora'd protagonist Tom Reagan has a [[DreamingOfThingsToCome prophetic dream]] about losing his hat.
** "Givin' me the ''high hat!''" said repeatedly by one of the few characters not to wear a hat.
* ''Film/TheSpirit'' is deeply attached to his fedora (and the rest of his outfit) and is caught multiple times ensuring it doesn't get away and recapturing it after fights. The Octopus doesn't have a consistent hat but in his first appearance he dons a ''very'' nice hat.
* The Neimoidians of ''Franchise/StarWars'' are, quite literally, a PlanetOfHats - [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Neimoidian_headgear Nice Hats]], that is.



* Literal "Nice Hat" in ''Film/JurassicPark''; Dennis Nedry to Lewis Dodgson. "What are you trying to look like, a secret agent?" The hat itself is not particularly notable apart from being a fedora.
** There was also Dr. Grant's hat that he losses about half way through the first movie, but he has it throughout the third.



* The fedoras Jake and Elwood wore in ''Film/TheBluesBrothers''. Notable in that Jake never removed his during the course of the film, and Elwood doffed his only twice.
* The feature movie pilot for ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'' features a space princess dressed in a [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/558798266236700334/?from_navigate=true large hat with horns, a silver bikini and very little else]].
-->'''Wilma:''' I confess I thought the Princess had you beguiled!
-->'''Buck:''' Well, she did have the nicest set of horns at the ball!
-->'''Dr. Theopolis:''' Yes - it was an attractive hat!
* In ''Film/CannibalTheMusical'', one of the bullying trappers wears a hat made out of a skunk. Whenever he tries to put down the main characters, Matt Stone's character always retorts, "Nice hat!", causing the trapper to look up at it self-consciously.
* Why I'm ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'' there's no doubt about that!
* Film/CharlieChan invariably wears a broad-brimmed Panama hat with a rounded crown.
* ''Film/AClockworkOrange'': Creator/StanleyKubrick had Alex and his droogs dressed in the height of nadsat fashion. And even if their platties were not what was described in the book, they still looked [[FutureSlang real horrorshow]].

The floppy brim disappears in later films, replaced by a flat, rigid brim and crown.
* ''Film/FightClub'': Marla Singer has one of these.
* Ramirez' musketeer-style hat with the peacock feather sweep in ''Film/{{Highlander}}''. The Kurgan had a very impressive hat as well, made of a skull and fur.



* Jef Costello, the hitman from Jean-Pierre Melville's crime film ''Film/LeSamourai'', never leaves his apartment unless his fedora is perfectly positioned atop his head. This is less OCD than [[BadassInANiceSuit extreme care about his appearance]] due to his code of honor.

** Gambit wears his hat throughout most of the film. [[http://angryweb.net/2009/04/28/lauren-shuler-donner-talks-gambit-spin-off-and-x-men-first-class/ It's a nice one, indeed.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBoxtrolls'', the members of the White Hat Council, the ruling body of Cheesebridge, wear very tall white hats as a status symbol; Snatcher and his lackeys wear similar red hats, and his obsession with moving up in the world includes getting a spot on the council and a hat of his own for wiping out the Boxtrolls.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'':
** Joao has a nice bowler hat.
** La Muerte boasts an absolutely ''enormous'' one, bedecked with candles, marigolds, feathers and skulls, as par due to being inspired by ''La Calavera Catrina''. If she weren't a god, there is no way that thing would stay on her head. It also [[ExpressiveAccessory reacts to her emotions]]. The candles turn into flares when she is furious, and Roman Candles when she is passionately happy.
** Carmelo Sanchez wears an Aztec headdress which identifies him being of native Mesoamerican origin.
** Both of the Adelita Twins wear impressive looking sombreros.
* In ''Film/{{Tampopo}}'', Goro's cowboy hat, which he even wears in the bath.
* ''Film/TimeBandits'': Each of the time bandits wears a different, eccentric hat. Randall wears a aviator helmet with goggles perpetually perched on his forehead.

Figit wears an upside-down colander with a candle on top.
* In the film ''Film/EasyLiving'' Creator/JeanArthur dons some very fashionable 1930s millinery.
* ''Film/WhyBeGood'' includes classic 1920s hats. So many beautiful hats. Sooo many.
* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': There ''would'' be a lot of these in the Capitol, but they are deliberately pushed into ImpossiblyTackyClothes territory instead.
* The feature movie pilot for ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'' features a space princess dressed in a [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/558798266236700334/?from_navigate=true large hat with horns, a silver bikini and very little else]].
-->'''Wilma:''' I confess I thought the Princess had you beguiled!
-->'''Buck:''' Well, she did have the nicest set of horns at the ball!
-->'''Dr. Theopolis:''' Yes - it was an attractive hat!

to:

* The MadHatter in ''Film/AliceInWonderland2010'' naturally has a ''very'' nice hat that seems to exist solely to cause cosplayers agony when it's not being used as a form of transportation.
** Suffice to say that if he takes off the hat, the odds are good that he's about to do something incredibly risky or more crazy than usual ([[spoiler:sacrificing himself to the Red Knights so that Alice can escape, letting Chessur take his place at the execution while he sneaks around behind the Red Queen, and dueling the Knave, to name a few]]).
* Cougar in ''Film/TheLosers'' has a nice hat he's particularly attached to. It's commented on late in the movie and when a mook tries to take it he dodges out of the way. [[spoiler:It appears that even with a gun to his head he's not about to give in.]]
-->'''Mook:''' You know, I like that hat. That's a great hat. [beat] I really don't care if there's a hole in it. What are you smiling at?
* In ''Film/DirtyDancing'' there is a dancer with a NiceHat. You see him briefly during the dance scene where Baby is carrying a watermelon.
* ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'''s turban. At one point, General Allenby is fascinated enough by it to consider trying it on, but then relents, saying it looks better on Lawrence.
* The agents of ''Film/TheAdjustmentBureau'' all rock some seriously nice [[http://www.esquire.com/cm/esquire/images/Gl/esq-adjustment-bureau-hats-030411-xlg.jpg fedoras]] [[spoiler:that let them travel through a secret PortalNetwork]].
* Matsu's preferred RoaringRampageOfRevenge garb in the ''[[Film/JoshuuSasori Female Prisoner Scorpion]]'' series includes a large-brimmed, dome-crowned black sunhat with a floppy brim. As well as being a decent disguise, it also looks decidedly feminine without being inherently sexy, and the floppy brim frequently obscures one of her eyes, perpetuating the visual theme of {{Youkai}} references. The floppy brim disappears in later films, replaced by a flat, rigid brim and crown.
* Fight Club: Marla Singer has one of these.
* Why I'm the ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'' there's no doubt about that!
* In the film version of ''Film/TheHobbit'' Bofur possesses a somewhat silly yet incredibly awesome hat. It has its own fandom.
* In ''Film/ASongIsBorn'', all the professors wear top hats to the New Jersey "wedding".
* Jack's Yankees baseball cap from ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}''. The fact that [[LastOfHisKind it's possibly the last one existing on the planet]] pretty much makes it this.
* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'': On Earth, Starfleet officers wear visored caps. Except for Kirk, who is far too MildlyMilitary to remember to actually put his on his head instead of carrying it in his hand.
* ''Film/{{RIPD}}'': Roy's cowboy hat which he loses early on, leaving him quite upset with Nick since he lost it from Nick pitching him into a bus as payback. [[spoiler:He gets it back in the end.]]
* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'':
** John Wraith is always wearing his cowboy hat in pretty much every scene.

* Detective Keith Frazier of ''InsideMan'', played by DenzelWashington, has a very nice white hat. The last shot of the film shows it being [[FetishFuel hula-hooped on the foot of his on-screen girlfriend]].

* The entire plot of short film ''Film/TheNewYorkHat'' revolves around a fancy hat bought for a young woman by a kindly minister, and the unfounded gossip that is provoked when the townspeople see the woman with the hat.
