Rocket Gibraltar (1988)
Kevin Spacey answers "sir" to Burt Lancaster and when asked why, he replied, "Leave it to Beaver."
Burt Lancaster's character has lunch with his grandson played by Macaulay Culkin and they discuss the ocean. The grandpa talks about fish and sharks and the kid replies with, "Like the shark in Jaws"? The Granpda then says, "Yes like the shark in Jaws. That is the exception to the rule." Also, when seeing Bill Pullman in the pool reading a newspaper, Kevin Spacey puts his hand up to his forehead (acting as a fin) and runs toward the pool while humming the Jaws theme song.
Kids biking out to boat wish they could fly like kids in E.T. -- but that was a movie, they are "real."
Given as a gift to Lancaster, seen on tv
