Weber grill in Movies
« on: October 21, 2019, 06:12:45 AM »
So, we were watching Misery this past weekend.  It seems the Weber Kettle is a minor actor in this moving, prolly has about 4 scenes in the movie with the Weber present.  The Kettle was upstairs in his cell/room, we he has to burn his manuscript (Lime green I believe), then she pulls it away out of the room.  Then the kettle is down in basement for some long shots.  Then, in one of the final scenes, James Caan is in the basement, raises his hand up and hits the aluminum ash catcher on the bottom of the kettle and the Sheriff hears it from outside (consequently it gets the sheriff killed).

Thought it was cool to have that much screen time and be involved in the movie to a degree.  I vote for 'best supporting prop' in a movie!


Any one else see a Weber in  movie?

Can't really tell one way or the other here, but it's Steve Martin in Father of the Bride.
Wife: Let me guess... you want to grill again

Not a movie, but if you make an appearance on the Simpsons, you've arrived.

Three wheeler style too!

My wife likes to watch "This is Us" and there are a lot of flashbacks to the 70s though the 90s.  I noticed in one scene there was a mint 18" lime.  Was the most eventful thing in the whole show for me.

There was also an episode of Supergirl where one of the new ivory mastertouches made an appearance with Superman grilling on it.  Kinda neat.

Quite a few scenes of a black kettle on Breaking Bad. My favorite is when WW sets fire to some cash in it, then kicks it all in the pool.

Kettles can be seen in the movie “It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world” during the hilarious hardware store scenes. Circa 1963 so get the pause button ready!

I swear, when I score a great deal on a 26" I'll stop buying grills... So often.

I know, it’s an animated movie and my imagination is part of this but…. There’s a kettle in The Incredibles Two!  So I think it was a Weber!
