The Outsiders (1983)
Johnny mentions the movie briefly. In addition, the title sweeping across the screen is an apparent homage.
Ponyboy (the smarter one) promises Johnny (the slower one) that things will be better in the country, and once they actually get to the country, there are several shots of rabbits. In Of Mice and Men, George (the smarter one) is always telling Lennie (the slower one) a story about how great things will be once they get out to a farm in the country and raise rabbits.
