Movies or scenes that make you hungry?

Whenever I see Pulp Fiction and Samuel L. Jackson takes a bite of that Kahuna burger I lose it. That burger looks so damn good, plus it helps that Jules sells it so well. That scene will put me in the mood to eat burgers for days and wouldn't you know it, nothing ever compares.

I actually get a similar feeling when I see the end of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. That's just more general hunger as opposed to wanting anything specific.

So, aside from the obvious (zombie & vampire movies), what movies or scenes in movies make you hungry? The movie doesn't even have to be food-themed. (like Soul Food or Eat Drink Man Woman).

Good examples.

Everytime I watch "The Terminal", I must have Burger King. "Fargo" also has plenty of scenes that give you the munchies.

"The Burbs", breakfast scene where Art is eating everything.
"The Matrix", Cypher is eating that really juicy steak...
"Stuck on You", scene where they're fixing all the burgers, etc.

Brad Pitt's constant eating in "Ocean's Eleven." Makes me wish I, too, had random food.

Do The Right Thing makes me crave a good, non-chain, mom-and-pop pizza. There's some pizza reference in almost every scene. (Store, delivery box, people eating, etc)

Another Goodfellas vote. Also, the scene in The Godfather where Clemenza teaches Michael to make sauce and Bobby D eating pasta with Clemeza and Tessio while planning Fenucchi's death in Godfather 2. When I was a kid growing up, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies with all the pizza scenes killed me. The first two movies at least, pretty much opened with pizza porn scenes.

Dinner Rush

When the sous chef quickly whips up Italian sausage and peppers for Danny Aiello's character, I soooooo want to make the same for myself.

So true! This was my first thought when I read the thread title.
I'd add Tampopo to the list too.

There's a certain scene in Re-Animator involving a disembodied head that makes me crave meat pies.

ever since i was little, the bazaar scene in Pollyanna, where she takes only one bite out of the corn on the cob, the watermelon, and the cake before someone rushes her away.
