Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
Hugh Grant's falling into water scene references Trevor Howard's falling into water while (badly) rowing Celia Johnson on a similar lake in a similar looking boat, after which, they too fall to laughing. In addition, this reference hints that Bridget and Daniel's romance will only be a brief encounter.
The closing song, "Have you Met Miss Jones" was featured in the 1955 classic "Gentlemen Marry Brunettes". The music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart, and sung by Rudy Vallee.
