JFK Assassination in Movies

Besides the obvious...JFK, Executive Action, Ruby, Love Field and In The Line of Fire I'm looking for other movies that have a JFK Assassination tie-in to the movie plotline or story.

I know there were a few made for TV movies like Ruby & Oswald and The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald and in a few tv shows like Quantum Leap and The New Twilight Zone so if possible I would like to know how many other TV shows also had a similar JFK tie-in.

Thanks

An X-Files Season 4 episode called Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man has a new angle on the JFK assassination.

There was a movie that came out last year. I think it was 'Interview with the Assassin' that was supposed to be about an interview with the 2nd gunman of the assassination of JFK.

Red Dwarf did an episode where they go back in time and accidently prevent the jfk assasination. To set things right they take a future JFK back in time so he can assasinate himself.

Oliver Stone's "Nixon".
And Seinfeld had a great parody scene about the Assassination.

Zoolander.

Matilda: Lee Harvey Oswald was not a male model.

J.P. Prewitt: You're god-damned right he wasn't. But those two lookers who capped Kennedy from the grassy knoll sure as shit were.

Salton Sea had a JFK assassination re-enactment using model cars and live pigeons as the passengers.

There was the mini-series KENNEDY starring Martin Sheen.

There's reference to the Kennedy Assassination in Clint Eastwood's IN THE LINE OF FIRE (A PERFECT WORLD incidently takes place a few weeks before the assassination)

And a really cool one is TIME QUEST (see my review!) in which a time traveller goes back in time to stop the assassination:
