* A take-that to Brooklyn from the film ''Film/TheMadMissManton'': --->'''Lt. Mike Brent''': Look, lady, it's been ten minutes since you called us. The murderer, that is if there is a murderer, could be in Brooklyn by now - that is, if anybody wants to be in in Brooklyn.

* It is believed by some fans that the villain of ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', Charles Muntz, is a jab at Charles ''Mintz'', the man who took the rights to WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit away from Creator/WaltDisney, in addition to his animation team, forcing him to start over with his own company and create WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse. However, This has actually been {{Jossed}} by Pixar staff, who claim that it was just a coincidence.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/WithinOurGates'' is considered a response to ''Film/TheBirthOfANation''. It is one of the earliest known films directed by an African-American and is a "race film" (an early film by black people for black audiences). The film focuses on racism and contains a lynching scene.

* ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' is a widely regarded classic, but TheRemake couldn't resist making a joke at the expense of Bubo the mechanical owl (Perseus's sidekick from the original):

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'', the characters' disturbed reaction to Sandy when she becomes a realistic-looking squirrel might be a shot at how live-action movies unintentionally make beloved cartoon characters look creepy when they're rendered in elaborate cgi.

* The start of ''Film/XXx'' (the Creator/VinDiesel spy thing, not the porn genre) features a tuxedo-wearing spy finding himself in a club, looking very out of place amongst the hip young kids, before getting himself shot several times.

* The original ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'' showed a torn poster of ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' in the background of one scene. Creator/BruceCampbell reveals in the DVD commentary that Creator/SamRaimi intended it as a sly dig at Creator/WesCraven's film, as if to say: "If you thought ''that'' was scary..." Craven responded [[ShoutOut goodnaturedly]], by having ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'''s protagonists seen watching the trailer for ''Film/TheEvilDead1981''. Raimi then answered back by showing Freddy Krueger's infamous glove hanging above a door in ''Film/EvilDead2''. The whole thing was actually started by a scene in ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' with a torn poster for ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' in the background, which Raimi took as a similar "If you thought that was scary" swipe.

It's complete with a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' ShoutOut: "Oh my god, you killed Lenny. You bastard!"
