With the popularity of the iPhone growing more and more everyday, it's starting to become very evident, even on the big screen. I recently saw the movie "I love You Man" and I must say, the iPhone played a big role in that movie. The only other movie I can think of that displayed the iPhone is Sex Drive. Can anyone else think of other movies, tv shows, or commercials( minus Apple commercials) where the iPhone has appeared?

The iPhone has been in a ton of TV shows since the release. I know of CSI and Chuck right off the top of my head. Also, there was an animated iPhone in an episode of American Dad.

Yeah, I saw the CSI LV episode where the new guy, played by Lawrence Fishburne, was using his iPhone to take pictures of possible evidence in a crime scene. They also used the iPhone in CSI Miami.

The description for the video is hilarious.



This one's in Italian but I want the app he's using. lol

I love you, man was the first time where they actually used the correct sounds from the iPhone. I was impressed.

The TV Show 30 Rock with Tina Fey and Alex Baldwin have iPhone 3G's and they use them all the time and they are a part of the show.

Tina shows pictures of her boyfriend on the phone to the camera so you get a clear view that it is an iPhone 3G. She looks at text messages on the phone. Alex Bladwin talks on his all the time.

There was an episode where Tina Fey left her iPhone in a cab and the cab driver blackmailed her to get it back. He tried to extort $2000 from her to get it. She and Kenneth, another character on the show, went on a crusade to the Taxi office to get it back. She actually paid the $ to get it back. You've got to see the episode.

So, yeah 30 Rock showcases this phone all the time.

Only slightly off topic, but Seinfield talks about the iPhone quite a bit in his act, at least last time I saw him in Vegas.

Man last night was iPhone on the big screen night.

Charlie receives pictures of his ex girlfriend on his iPhone (v1) on Two and a Half men.

CSI - Miami there were at least 3 or 4 shots of the iPhone. Though they must put some overlay for it when it rings as there are all sort of moving images on the phones screen when it rings.

I watched Zack and Miri make a porno last night and Justing Long's character has a v1 iPhone. I thought it was pretty funny cause he did the mac commercials.

Justin Longs character in "Drag me to Hell" also has an iPhone. It's only shown in one scene.

In "The Hangover" there were a couple iPhone 3Gs. That was also the only time I have ever seen an iPhone on screen that was held correctly.
