MasterCraft in Movies

Alright, my son got Muppets Take Manhattan (one his many DVDs for Christmas this year) and was watching it this morning. All of the sudden, from another room I hear a familiar rumble like an accelerating boat with low restricted exhaust - like my direct drive. I came in to rewind the disk and low and behold I see this! By the way the movie was made in '84 so this must be an '83 maybe an '84 with a fiberglass platform and all.

What other movies are there that have MCs? I'm also curious if you know of a movie, TV show or ad that has towboats of any brand.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Didn't "Howard the Duck" have a ski boat in it. Can't remember if it was a mastercraft or not. I do remember seeing it being shot down the street from my grandparents house in Rio Vista. (California delta)
Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

What about Captiva Island with Banana George? I haven't seen it in years but there has to be an inboard or two in there. Lots of cool skiing too, barefoot, trick, Air Chair & seems like there was even a shot of George on his old standup foil skis.

Great Outdoors with John Candy and Dan Akroyd has a couple
of MasterCrafts in it Tristars. What a great movie "What are ya gonna do in a pontoon boat, invade Normandy. Or do you wanta go for a ride with your Uncle Roman in a Drag Boat?" Classis Akroyd.

I'll think of some others
