Mary and Max (2009)
"Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera)" is heard in one scene.
One of the smokers that drops butts and annoys Max, is a parody of Audrey Hepburn from this film.

The boy sitting next to Max at the bus stop wears a "Save Ferris" t-shirt.
Max eats fishsticks on Wednesdays, just like Raymond in Rain Man
When Mary is crying in her room during her college years, there's an Abba poster on the wall. Mary is an overweight young adult living with her mother. In this film, the main character Muriel is also an overweight young adult living with her parents - obsessed with Abba. Mary's voice actress, Toni Collette also played the part of Muriel.
When Max buys ink for his typewriter you hear, presumably, the sales clerk say "thank you" in a raspy voice. This is the same sound clip used in Harvie Krumpet when he says thank you to the old woman in the old folks home. Adam Elliot is the creator of both Harvie Krumpet and Mary and Max.
Mentioned by Margaret Pomeranz as being among her favourite movies of 2009.
