* "Hundred Dollar Baby"
** The title is a reference to ''Film/MillionDollarBaby''. The End of the episode also parodies the "stool" scene.
** The episode also provides references to the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' series, particularly the "running up the steps" scene.
** ''Film/TheKarateKid'' gets referenced with the "You're The Best" montage.
* "Charlie Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass"
** The Russian Roulette game in the basement is a shout out to the end of ''Film/TheDeerHunter''.
** The same episode also alludes to ''Film/DogDayAfternoon'', when Charlie chants "Attica, Attica"
* The ending of "The Gang Gets Held Hostage" has Frank in ''Film/DieHard'''s John [=McClane=]'s role with a pistol taped to the back of his head, and he even tosses Liam [=McPoyle=] off the roof of the pub like Hans Gruber. His line, "Yippy-kay-yay, Mister Falcon!" is the dubbed line from the edited-for-television version of the film that replaces "Yippy-kay-yay, mother fucker!"
* "The Gang Solves the North Korea Situation"
** Frank, Mac, and Dee hold auditions for a talent show, where they take on the personae of the ''Series/AmericanIdol'' judges. Complete with the red glasses of coke.
** In the beginning of the episode, Dee attempts a Christopher Walken impression using a bit of the famous "[[AssShove watch monologue]]" from ''Film/PulpFiction''.
** Dee does an imitation from ''Film/DoTheRightThing''
* "Sweet Dee Has a Heart Attack"
** Frank is put into a mental institution that is an homage to ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''. There is even a large mute Native American. Frank escapes the mental institution in the same way the Chief does in the book. The actor playing the Chief in the episode is the movie actor's son. This doubles as an ActorAllusion, since Danny [=DeVito=] was in the original film.
** Mac tries to emulate the plot of ''TheSecretOfMySuccess'' and sings the "Day Bow Bow" song featured in the film.
* "A Very Sunny Christmas"
** When Mac is looking at old Christmas recordings his family took of them all opening presents on Christmas Morning, Mac's reaction to his present might be alluding to the [[http://youtu.be/GGmCaAEDxDU Nintendo 64 Kid]].
** Dee makes clumsily-worded references to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** Frank crashes his Lamborghini and has a vision of a ''RudolfTheRedNosedReindeer''-type stop-motion world that also has a California Raisins reference.
* "Mac is a Serial Killer": The way the gang coaxes Mac in is similar to Chris Hansen's ''ToCatchAPredator''. Frank even says, "To catch a predator!" when they ask Frank where he's going.
* "The Gang Gets Extreme: Home Makeover Edition"
** The episode is an AffectionateParody of ''ExtremeHomeMakeover''.
** Mac wants to show the Mexican family they accidentally kidnapped ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'' and references the racist themes that critics accused it of having upon its release.
* In "Charlie Has Cancer", Artemis frequently mentions and acts out scenes from ''Film/CoyoteUgly''. In what doubles as an ActorAllusion, Katlin Olsen (Sweet Dee) had a minor role in the film.
* In "Charlie Got Molested", Mac can be seen wearing a jacket that say "Shermer H.S.". this is alluding to the fictional high school used in the Creator/JohnHughes-verse. According to the commentary, the crew has selected it from the costume department without realizing that it was a reference and only learned about it after the episode was filmed.
* "The Gang Gets Invincible":
** The film ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' is frequently mentioned, to the point that the episode could be considered an AffectionateParody. Everybody seems to call the film, "That NewKidsOnTheBlock Movie," apparently mistaking Mark Wahlberg for his brother, who was in the music group.
** Geoffrey Owens plays himself masquerading as football player Donovan [=McNabb=]. The gang recognizes him from his recurring role on ''TheCosbyShow'', and the coach makes it a point to insist he's "[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not the guy from]] ''TheCosbyShow''."
* "The Gang Wrestles For The Troops" makes a few references to the Wrestling/{{WWE}}, most notably HulkHogan.
* "Bums: Making a Mess All Over the City"
** Charlie makes repeated references to ''{{Serpico}}'', dresses up like the title character, and tries to do an Creator/AlPacino impression.
** Dennis names the cat Special Agent Jack Bauer after the character from ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]''.
* Frank keeps editing parts of {{Rambo}}'s life into his own past in "Mac & Dennis: Manhunters".
* "America's Next Top Billboard Model" is a parody of ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'', while Mac tries to turn it into a dating gameshow remnicent of ''TheBachelor''.
* "The D.E.N.N.I.S. System" has the gang go to a fair, where Dee's boyfriend Ben gets his face painted and says, [[http://youtu.be/CMNry4PE93Y "I like turtles,"]] referencing a popular YouTube video.
** * In the same episode, Dennis's sex scene is done in the fashion of the silhouetted sex scene in ''TopGun''.
* "The Gang Reignites the Rivalry" features Charlie trying to be a savant janitor instead of just a janitor like the lead of ''GoodWillHunting''.
* "Dennis Gets Divorced" has Maureen beating herself on the chest like MarkWahlberg in ''Fear''. It takes Mac and Charlie a few moments to figure out the reference.
* One of the high school students in season six is a {{Juggalo}}.
* In "Dee Gives Birth", ''Film/WeekendAtBernies'' is referenced and [[OfCorpseHesAlive pulled off]].
* "Frank's PrettyWoman" is a pretty clear parody of ''PrettyWoman'', complete with the Roy Orbison song.
* In "The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore"
** Mac references ''JerseyShore''
** Mac and Frank losing their precious rum ham is a reference to Wilson in ''{{Castaway}}''. It even has a face on it. Immediately after it floats away, the show cuts to Dennis and Dee on a ride called "Castaway."
* In "Frank Sets Sweet Dee on Fire," the guys go to Chinatown and are surprised that it's nothing like the scenes from ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina.''
* In "The ANTI-Social Network", while looking for a Dylan Tobak they found on Facebook, Mac and Dee discover that he's actually a fictional person made up by a woman named {{Catfish}}.
* ""Charlie and Dee Find Love": Dennis says that the rich Tafts are doing the same thing from such films as ''Film/CruelIntentions'', ''Film/DangerousLiaisons'', ''Film/ShesAllThat'' and "just about every late-Nineties movie." The reality is actually closest to ''Film/DinnerForSchmucks'', but that goes unmentioned.
* The HalloweenEpisode "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" presents the heavily inbred [=McPoyle=] family as shambling, misshapen, insane creatures, and brothers Ryan and Liam apparently trying on the Innsmouth Look. Add into that references to 'tainted blood' and you have a pretty clear shout-out to Creator/HPLovecraft. The episode also contains a reference to ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', with Charlie delivering a modified version of Quint's Indianapolis speech (regarding rats, Charlie's bete noir, instead of sharks). The homage includes Charlie adopting Robert Shaw's mannerisms, as well as the appropriation of entire lines, referring to the "black, lifeless eyes" that "roll over white" when a rat bites you (this is referenced by Dennis, who snaps Charlie out of it by directly questioning "is that the speech from ''Jaws''?").
* In "Charlie Rules the World," Charlie meets a girl from an fantasy MMO named "Queen of Thrones." This is almost certainly a reference to ''Series/GameOfThrones''
** It helps that Charlie goes into ManipulativeBastard mode once again, and It's glorious! Before the DownerEnding, It's very clear to the Gang that Charlie has them all by the throat.
* In "Frank's Back in Business," Frank and Charlie wear outfits and hairstyles ripped from Gordon Gekko of ''Film/WallStreet''
* "Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life": Dee walks around Charlie's apartment complex and comes across twin girls who say "Come play with us. Forever, and ever, and ever," which is an homage to ''Film/TheShining''.
* "The Gang Gets Trapped" When Frank is about to get caught he hides in a cuboard filled with stuffed toys leaving his face visable, like in ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''
** And of course the repeated references to ''IndianaJones'', right down to the hat and whip.
* In "The Gang Saves the Day," Charlie's fantasy is a reference to the opening montage in ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''
** In Dee's day dream, she becomes famous by playing a British male butler, referencing ''Series/MrBelvedere''.
