The "we've got bush" part of Revenge of the Nerds.

Oh, and the fact that the Joe team spends the entire "G.I. Joe: The Movie" looking for Roadblock's unit.

Didn't really understand the "Nice beaver" line the first time I watched The Naked Gun.

...but I laughed anyway.

In Which Way but Loose, there is a scene where Geoffrey Lewis tells an annoying woman that Beverly D'Angelo has the clap. The woman ran away screaming. I asked my father what the clap was, and he said, "It's a....skin disease." Well, he wasn't really lying.

Not really a specific movie but,
Jm J. Bullock
Paul Lynde
Charles Nelson Reilly
James Coco
Cesar Romero
Johnny Mathis
Raymond Burr

I had no idea.

Honk!

In Ghostbusters, when the ghost unzips Ray's pants. I never understood what was up with that when I was a kid.

This is sort of a variation on the question; but I remember when I was 10 and my parents rented PARENTHOOD. There's the scene where the family is gathered for dinner and the lights go out, and Steve Martin goes looking for a flashlight. He comes into the dark going 'I found one. How do you turn this on?', then the lights come on and it turns out he's holding this giant vibrator. My father and I laughed, and my mother was utterly baffled. She nudged my father and said, 'What was that?' Both me and my father pretended we didn't hear her.

In Predator, when Dutch's team finds the crashed helicopter/ skinned Green Berets hanging in the trees. Billy, the Native American member of the team, says he thinks " guerillas " did it. My young mind didn't know what a " guerilla " was at the time, so I thought he was talking about " gorillas ". Imagine my disappointment when Dutch and his men never encountered the blood thirsty apes at any time in the movie.

A lot of stuff from both of the Ace Ventura movies. A lot of kids movies I watched when I was little, I see them again when my little sister watches them and I catch little jokes adults are supposed to get.

Seinfeld is also a big recource of these. I used to watch it with my parents and just laughed along.

Simpsons also I get a lot of jokes now I hadn't when I was little.

Same here! I used to love the show as a kid, but now that I watch the old re-runs I realize I wasn't actually getting a lot of the jokes. I had no idea what "mulva" rhymed with.

Boy, I feel old.

I'll agree with MrPeanut regarding "Three's Company". Unlike Seinfeld, I was actually a kid when Three's Company was first on.

A lot of sexual innuendo in the Bond films.

Best example - Q in MOONRAKER, with his back turned to the screen showing Bond and Holly Goodhead getting it on in the space shuttle: "I believe he's attempting reentry, sir."

Talk about naieve.
