Spotted some tiki action in two films recently:

- Robinson Crusoe on Mars. The stranded astronaut is trying to light a fire in the thin atmosphere with a matchbook which has a tiki mask on it from the Kailua Klub in San Diego, California. Actually, a really good movie too.

- Muppets in Space. Yeah, I know, but there was nothing else on. The muppets are having a tropical themed jacuzzi party and a couple of them are sipping from tiki mugs.

Does anyone know if there is a list of films with tikis in them? If not, there should be.

Cheers,
Kelly

Here's one:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off. There's a scene in the beginning of the movie where Ferris is on the phone trying to persuade Cameron to come pick him up. He's sitting in a lounge chair by the pool sipping a drink from a Hawaii Kai Hula Girl mug.

I think that most Robinson Crusoe movies have a high tiki-ness, though most don't feature a heavy Tiki count (apart from this reacent made for TV version that I saw with lots of new caledonian tiki's in it) but inessance the whole tropical island theme, grass huts and bamboo furniture, think of the disney film "the swiss family robinson" that tree house would make a brillant tiki bar.
And I agree "Robinson Crusoe on mars" is ace

This thread points to one of the problems of this board: New (and old) members don't have the time to browse through all previous posts, not even the ones that are on the same page.
This should have landed under the ol' "tiki bar scene in old movie" header...

The Tiki bar scenes thread is for scenes shot in Tiki bars. This one seems to be a "spot the Tiki" thread. The pool scene in the Elvis flick "Clambake" (brought to our attention by bigbrotiki) is a Tiki scene in a movie, but as I recall (before I fell asleep) it was not a Tiki bar scene. Splitting hairs, perhaps, but we all seem to be mighty good at that.

Since this thread has officially been dubbed "Non-Tiki Bar" Tiki spottings in movies, I'll add one I saw the other night. Black Widow with Theresa Russell and Debra Winger. A large Tiki carving can be seen outside of a Hawaiian resort where the girls stay. Other than that, the few highlights of the movie feature Theresa Russell in a bikini and Debra Winger applying CPR to Theresa...

I've been asked by a local film maker of my acquaintance to dress a mock "home tiki bar" for an independent film he's directing. Most of the dressing will be from my own collection, but I'll probably have to build a bar from scratch as mine can't be moved. Should be fun - I'll let you know how it goes. Say Woffmut - interested in carving something for use on the silver screen?

I saw 3 movies on video this weekendwith Tiki drinks: 1 was the afore mentioned "Muppets from Space" (Ratso & PePe are drinking from tiny green tiki mugs & there's a 3rd in the background), "Weird Al" Yankovic's "UHF" (Al goes into a bar & orders a Blueberry Daqueri & it comes in a "Mr. Bali Hai" mug), & "Boys on the Side" (Drew Barrymore's character's playing Putt-Putt golf while drinking from a coconut shell mug with an umbrella & fruit garnish).

Rapa Nui (sorry it's not on DVD yet)

A forbidden love story, the annual birdman competition, and of course carving Moai heads, moving Moai heads are mostly what the film is about.

Lots of great tikis, even if there is not lots of great acting.

Bio-Dome with Pauley Shore has several Tikis and hawaiian signs during the big luau scene. (Looks like the same stuff for rent at Oceanic Arts.)

Chairman of the board with Carrot top has all kinds of cool things, rat finks, moon eyes, Tiki's, hula girls, etc.

The old film "Come Back Little Sheba" starring Burt Lancaster & Shirley Booth has a scene where she is listening to an exotica music radio program called "Taboo".
