1998  Rush Hour                 
"Surfin USA"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Co_4qOsbo8

"The Beach Boys are great American music."
"The Beach Boys gonna get you a great ass whoopin."

LOL This scene makes me bust out laughing every time I see it.
Thanks for that!

My kids roared when we watched that scene in the movie! 

Hilarious, even now!   LOL

I'm sure there is plenty to add to the list since these posts.  There have been some nice examples of more obscure tracks I've noticed being used in prominent films.  Ones that come to mind for me include Sail On Sailor in The Departed, River Song in Marley & Me, and Ol' Man River (among others) in The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

1990 Graveyard Shift    
"Surfin' Safari"
I saw it a week ago, very funny scene: [a bunch of night workers are given a task to kill all the rats in the basement of the textile factory. Tackled with hoses, they see] some of rats sliding the water on small woods. There is a tape recorder with Surfin' Safari on. The very 1st "Let's go surfin' now..." begins the rat "surfing", so it seemed like the guys picked this song for laughs. 1 or 2 even sang along. This is the only good moment in the otherwise bad horror flick (about a huge semi-rat/bat).

"Wouldn't It Be Nice" used very effectively in the fantastic but depressing Michael Moore GM "documentary" Roger & Me.

I redbox'ed (is that a verb?) the new movie "No Way Jose" starring Adam Goldberg and was pleasantly surprised to hear the bulk of "Little Bird" featured.

Not a movie, but they played God Only Knows on Coast to Coast the other night.  Also, one morning years ago I was flipping through the channels and Imus was playing the vocal snippet from Don't Talk as lead in music.

Some years ago I was pleasantly surprised at the theater to hear the BWPS version of Good Vibrations over the end credits of the hilarious "Wild Hogs".

Yesterday, I watched Hotel Transylvania 3 with my family.  Good Vibrations is played near the end.  Spoiler alert:  The villain controls the kraken in his effort to kill all the monsters by playing an evil song but Dracula's son-in-law counters this by playing positive music...  "Good Vibrations" being his first choice.

Can't forget the Old Man River acapella mix in Wes Anderson's 2007 adaptation of Fantastic Mr. Fox. At first I was astonished when I heard it, and then remembered that it's a Wes Anderson film with Randall Poster as music supervisor so of course they're gonna use an alternate version of a bonus track from the Friends-20/20 two-fer.

You can add Five Summer Stories a MacGillivary Freeman production from 1972. A surfing movie (arguably one of the greatest of all time) which had major cinema release in the USA and Australia and played through to 1975. Use of the Beach Boys tracks were given free of charge by the band and it went a long way to giving the band credibility in the 70s:

Feel Flows
Surfin Safari
Surfin
California Girls
Do It Again
Good Vibrations
Surfs Up
California
Sail On Sailor
The Trader
Long Promised Road
