I recently saw Failure to Launch (much to the sound of my protest) and was pleased to see a Prius in it. It was even hooked up with a overhead rack for their surfboards or bicycles or something. Perhaps if more media would use Prius cars, interest would be raised even further. As of now, I can only think of that movie, Family Guy and Scrubs in which I've seen Prius cars. I've heard that Just Friends, Kicking and Screaming, Must Love Dogs and Scary Movie 3 all have Prius cars as well. In what other movies or TV shows have you seen them?

Oh, I think Toyota is at capacity anyway, demand already outstrips producton.

War of the Worlds

There is a Prius parked on the street right before the martian's first attack in Spielberg's "War of the Worlds."

I pretty sure it wasn't one of the cars destroyed by the heat ray. Apparently, the martians knew that high tensile steel wouldn't melt so easily!

How funny.. I just saw Failure to Launch this weekend and thought the same thing. I also happened to watch "In Her Shoes" and I think that's where I saw another Prius..

Larry David drives a Prius in many episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (an HBO production).

In the final episode of "Six Feet Under" (also HBO), the character Claire heads off into her future in a Prius.

It's a little-remembered fact that the Prius made its prime time debut on a show that I worked on...Anyone remember Thieves? It was an ABC series that only lasted one season (2001) starring John Stamos and Melissa George. Melissa's character, Rita, drove a Gen 1 Prius...

Just saw Little Miss Sunshine. I wasn't really thinking about looking for Prii until they were leaving the Redondo Suites and there was a Silver and a Blue in the parking lot.

Highly recommend the movie, great cast and very funny!

I didn't notice the Prii. I must have been too busy laughing. It is a great movie.

Check out "The Last Kiss" which premiered this weekend. The Prius is practically a co-star. It befell an accident which was a glaring reminder of my first scrape which I found on my car just hours before. (And I didn't even park near anyone.)

The New Adventures of Old Christine

The very funny (imho...) Julia Louis-Dreyfus drives a Prius in her new sitcom "The New Adventures of Old Christine." It has even been featured in the dialog of some episodes.
