  • In the 1996 action thriller film The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson, Jackson's character hears the song on the car radio while driving and starts to sing the chorus as "I'm not talking 'bout the linens...", instead of "I'm not talking 'bout moving in", and Davis's character then promptly corrects his mondegreen.
  • In the 2013 comedy film Anchorman 2, the song is briefly featured in a scene where Ron Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) revisits his divorced wife Veronica Corningstone (played by Christina Applegate) and his son Walter just as he is approaching the door of their apartment in New York City with a gift for Walter.
