Tom Cruise´s wonderful a-capella version of "Little Deuce Coupe" in "War Of The Worlds".

"Wipeout"  (need confirmation that this   was indeed the BB with the Fat Boys version)

Well people forget too that the BBs themselves cameo in the movie and I'm pretty sure it's the same FB/ BBs version in the movie. Great comedy!

BTW of course HeftySums would know about this!

One of the Superman films (I think III) has a scene with some BB tune playing (that, I forgot, too).

Big help I am :D

I love how Good Vibrations was put to use in VANILLA SKY. Classic!

I
My favorite appearance of a Beach Boys song in a movie is "American Graffiti," which plays "All Summer Long" over the closing credits. (The characters also talk about the Beach Boys in the film, which is set in 1962.)

The use of All Summer Long at the end of American Graffiti is really effective because it's used over an epilogue section were we're told what happens to the (fictional) characters on the cusp of adulthood we've just been watching in the film.  And it's sort of 'died in Vietnam' or just quite mundane stuff that really suits the pathos of the song with its happy/sad ambience and "won't be long 'til summer time is through" refrain.  This was the first time I ever heard that song and it was one of the things that really got me a lot more interested in The Beach Boys than I had been up to that point.

I agree wholeheartedly, Sir Rob.  The end of American Graffiti first gives the brief bios of the male characters -- several of which are shockingly tragic after the bittersweet but warm tone of the rest of the movie.  Then the xylophone/glockenspiel intro of "All Summer Long" starts up -- and what is so cool is the way George Lucas, with what must have been a very low budget for credits, had the names of the lead characters and actors appear piecemeal in rhythm with the song.  Then, as the vocals kick in, the credits start scrolling.  This was at a time when most movies had very limited end-credit scrolls, if any (unlike the 4-5 minutes thank-everybody-and-the-caterer's-mom-to-pad-the-official-running-time we see now).  Perfect synthesis of music and visual. 

Plus I love the part of the movie when Mackenzie Phillips and Paul LeMat are riding in LeMat's deuce coupe and the Wolfman Jack plays "Surfin' Safari" on the radio, saying how he thinks the Beach Boys are going to go far.  Mackenzie says the Beach Boys are "boss," but LeMat says he hates surfing music and that rock and roll has been going downhill since Buddy Holly died.  Classic!  Assuming the movie is set in late summer 1962, the use of "Surfin' Safari" is not anachronistic, because it hit the charts in August.

Thanks - it's quite a few years since I've watched that film and you've brought it back to my mind more exactly.

On Three's Company, John Ritter at different times has sung parts of Fun, Fun, Fun (2 separate episodes), and Surfin' Safari. A version of Surfin' Safari was featured on an episode of The Golden Girls.


A pretty good list below:
