Famous Buicks in Movies

2018 Buick Regal

Seeing your favorite car on the screen can make your favorite movie even better. Here are some well-known titles where you can catch famous Buicks in movies.

Rain Man

Buick is one of the main stars of this road trip movie. In Rain Man, Charlie Babbitt goes on a road trip with his autistic brother, Raymond. What are they road tripping in? Their father’s inherited 1949 Buick Roadmaster that Charlie himself stole years back.


Cars… in Cars? Believe it or not, this talking-car movie absolutely features a Buick – in villain form! The villain of the movie, Chick Hicks, is modeled after a 1980’s Buick Regal. Its boxy ‘80’s feel gives him the tough vibe needed to be a real villain.

La La Land

One of the hit movies of last year (and maybe even of the decade) features a 1982 Buick Riviera throughout the movie. It stars in the opening sequence, with Ryan Gosling behind the wheel.  And of course, it becomes a joke later in the film when he honks that Buick wheel every time he picks Emma Stone up for a date.

You might not be a movie star, but you can always be a star when you’re behind the wheel of a Buick. Find your dream Buick today at Bill Roberts Chevrolet Buick.
