The Terminator has the "TIKI MOTEL" that Sarah Conner and her protector (what ever his name is) stay at this motel while on the run. Nothing Tiki but maybe the light fixture in the room.

"The Big Bounce," currently showing, prominently features two large Hawaiian tikis fronting the beach in one of the opening scenes.

The story is located in Oahu's North shore and some of the shots are of lovely fauna and beautiful emerald green ocean. Surfing buffs will also love it.

Don't know if this one is mentioned elsewhere but there are tiki and polynesian decor sightings in some scenes of the classic John Wayne movie "IN HARM'S WAY"
co-starring Kirk Douglas & Carroll O'connor.

"A Guy Thing" which came out a few months back kicks off in a new-looking Tiki bar complete with Tiki statues and the like. The plot revolves around the main character who meets a 'Tiki girl' (In this context, a Tiki Girl appears to be someone who dances in a bikini and a lei in a Tiki bar) on his stag night. As a result there are many references to him being with this 'Tiki Girl' throughout the movie which is otherwise utterly unremarkable in every respect.

Has anyone ever mentioned that the whole "Why am I funny?" scene in Goodfellas takes place in a tiki establishment?

Hours later...Thanks Woody! I never posted in the old thread, thats about all i can remember about that. I guess that would have to do with the fact that I am trying to perfect a Sufferin' Bastard at home after work daily. Almost there, but..

Indded we have. In fact, it was in a thread you started off!

I guess memory loss is one of the downsides of too many high-quality rum-based drinks....

Yes too bad the film's script was so thin and that blond actor guy is just plain annoying! I love Morgan Freeman though, it would have been better if it just was about him, the blond girl and Sheen hanging out with surfers and tiki carvers on the north shore. Now THAT would have been way more intersting!

In the movie "Swingers" they meet the girls in the "Bamboo Lounge" after the chicks get off work.

Several tiki sightings in the old John Wayne / Lee Marvin movie Donovan's Reef.

Tiki in "50 First Dates"

I haven't seen this movie yet...it takes place in Hawaii, and here's a picture of Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler holding Tiki mugs(albeit new dime-a-dozen ones)

I'm embarrassed to say I've seen this (I must have been home from work with the flu and nothing else was on... uh, yeah)

THE EXPERTS (1989) starring John Travolta, Some other guy, Kelly Preston, etc. Two wannabe club promoters from NY asked to redo a club in a small town. The club is an empty tiki bar, at the site of which Travolta get all offended and throws a hissy-fit. As expected, they turn the place into a late 80's nightmare (horrific even by 80's standards) Painful to watch in so many ways, but it's interesting to see the "Me" decades' attitude toward tiki... the result of which we all know too well.

On AMC today I stumbled across a scene from the John Wayne flick "Wake of the Red Witch" (1948 or 1949)...John and some other white men were with some natives-of-unknown-origin gathered in front of a large and very cool looking Moai that had a fire pit in front of it. The native spokesperson presented a big chest of pearls to the Duke and this angered one of the white guys who pulled a gun, shot wildly, then ended up falling into the fire pit beneath the Moai. The natives took this as a good sign, the Moai had no reaction.


P.S.: I attempted two searches to see if this film had been mentioned on Tiki Cental before. Apologies if it has and feathers are ruffled, noses out of joint, or butt cheeks have clenched permanently shut. Maybe it's mentioned in the B.O.T. and if it is again with the apologies for not having that tome firmly set page by page in my memory.
