Trademark Favorite Food: F Ilm
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits: Pirate Captain and his crew all love ham.
  • Pauly Bleeker of Juno and orange Tic-Tacs, his "only vice."
  • Shoot 'em Up's Mr. Smith hates a lot of things, but seems to really like carrots. This is largely part of an extended Bugs Bunny reference. It also makes sense in that he has no money to speak of, but can grow them in an abandoned greenhouse for next to nothing. He also makes a crack that they're "good for your vision," going toward his superhuman aiming skills.
  • The Proposition has Charlie Burns, eater of kangaroos.
  • Darryl Zero of The Zero Effect stockpiles Tab soda and canned tuna, amongst several other strange food obsessions.
  • MirrorMask: Valentine is ready for dessert, but did not hog those cakes. The Sphinxes like books.
    Hungry. Still hungry.
  • Frank Booth of Blue Velvet is very vocal about his choice of beer: "HEINEKEN?! FUCK THAT SHIT! PABST! BLUE! RIBBON!"
  • James Bond has his trademark vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred.
  • In the Errol Flynn movie They Died With Their Boots On, George Armstrong Custer loves his onions.
  • The alien refugees of District 9 love their cat food. Another mentioned favorite is tire-rubber.
  • Zombieland - Tallahassee just wants a goddamn Twinkie. He eventually gets one.
  • In The Big Lebowski, the Dude is rarely seen without a White Russian. He even prepares one with non-dairy creamer when no milk is available.
  • Napoleon Dynamite loves his tater tots.
  • Norman Bates in Psycho is often seen munching on candy corn, a habit created by Anthony Perkins for the character.
  • Theodore Rex loves "COOKIES COOKIES COOKIES!"
  • In Dick Tracy, Big Boy Caprice has a well-known fondness for walnuts, so much that finding walnut shells at a crime scene is proof enough for Tracy that he was involved in it.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
    • Captain Barbossa is frequently shown with an apple in hand. In the first movie, he claimed the first thing he would do once his curse was lifted was eat a whole bushel of apples. After his resurrection at the end of "Dead Man's Chest", he finally eats a green apple after The Reveal.
    • Captain Jack Sparrow loves rum. Sadly, the rum is always gone.
  • In Joe Versus The Volcano, the islanders are known for their love of orange soda—to the point where its cans become part of the national costume.
  • Garth's red rope licorice in Wayne's World 1 and 2. He even built a licorice dispenser inside the Mirth Mobile.
  • In the 2010 The A-Team, an angry Baracus can often be calmed by coconut curry with toast points, especially when prepared by Murdock.
  • In The Professional, Leon drinks nothing but milk, and is often shown going to the local store to buy more. It's part of his portrayal as a curiously innocent and childlike assassin. Part of Mathilda's training involves drinking lots of milk, which she does not care for.
  • In G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Duke really likes Dubble Bubble gum, and reluctantly gives his last piece to Breaker before the Paris chase scene begins. Breaker's love of the bubblegum is a carry-over from the comic character's trademark trait.
  • In Branded To Kill, the antihero is obsessed with rice and constantly orders it, but it's the aroma that he loves.
  • Donny, one of the characters in Cornered!, was nicknamed "Donny Donut" since he's almost always chowing down on them. In the end, the killer force feeds him them until he chokes.
  • Bubba and his "srimp" in Forrest Gump. Forrest himself loved ice cream, and was also a big fan of the soft drink Dr. Pepper. (Unfortunately, drinking too many caused him to need to make a run to the bathroom right when he met President John F. Kennedy.)
  • Mystery Team: "Chocolate milk just tastes better than regular milk"
  • Agent Sands from Once upon a Time in Mexico loves his puerco pibil, and will order it in any restaurant that he comes to in Mexico. Sometimes he'll eat a dish of this that he considers too good, prompting him to go around back and shoot the cook. In one of the extras for the movie, the "10-Minute Cooking School," Robert Rodriguez actually lays down how to make it.
  • In Zodiac, the lead police officer loves animal crackers.
  • Karl from Sling Blade loves his "french-fried potaters."
  • Alex of A Clockwork Orange with his Milk Plus, which he drinks in preparation for a bit of the old Ultraviolence.
  • Harry Knuckles and bananas.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man: This incarnation of Spider-Man seems to have a fondness for chocolate milk. Gwen Stacy herself is so fond of chocolate that she once wished she could live in a chocolate house, which tips her dad off when she claims to not want to come to dessert.
  • Jackie Brown: Ordell Robbie insists on screwdrivers.
  • Twister: The entire storm chaser team: "STEAK AND EGGS!" Specifically, Jo's aunt's steak and eggs. And gravy, considered in-universe a separate food group.
  • In Switchback, Sheriff Olmstead's BLT sandwiches, which he made himself.
  • In ''Frozen:
    • Anna and Elsa share a brief bonding moment during the coronation ball:
    Elsa: And what's that smell?
    (the two sisters sniff in the air together)
    Anna and Elsa (dreamily): Chocolate!
    • Meanwhile, Kristoff's pet reindeer Sven loves carrots.
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Reese's Pieces.
  • Ghostbusters: Twinkies are considered Egon Spengler's favorite food thanks to a scene in which he uses a Twinkie to illustrate the amount of paranormal/supernatural activity in New York City. After Harold Ramis' death, some fans left Twinkies outside the fire station used as Ghostbusters HQ for both films.
  • The Blues Brothers: Jake's four fried chickens and Elwood's dry white toast. Elwood moreso, seeing as he seems to just carry white bread around with him everywhere if the scene where he tries out a toaster he happens to come across by making himself some toast is any indication.
  • In Penguins Of Madagascar, Cheezy Dibbles are the preferred snacks of penguins and octopi.
