Broken Flowers (2005)
Don mentions Sam Spade.
Don mentions Mike Hammer.
Don encounters a young, blonde, and promiscuously flirtacious girl named Lolita (wearing similiar heart-shaped apparel).
The scene where Don visits the grave of his former lover mirrors a scene from this film.
Bill Murray's best friend in this movie is a black guy named Winston.
When Don Johnston introduces himself to Lolita, she thought he was kidding. This is a reference to Don Johnson who plays Sonny Crockett in the 80's series Miami Vice.
Towards the end of the movie, Bill Murray, sporting a band-aid, is asked by his (possible) son if he is a gangster. In Mad Dog and Glory, he sported a band-aid in the same place throughout the majority of that film, and played a gangster.
The girl named "Sun Green" is a reference to the character from Neil Young's Greendale project.
