Let’s share a few from a recent Reddit discussion to get you started, then perhaps you can add more in the comments that we all may have forgotten.

The Hunt for Red October - When a defecting Russian was dying and said, “I… would liked to have seen Montana….”
A River Runs Through It – Brad Pitt fly fishing. That pretty much says it all.
Twin Peaks – An important character is from Missoula and there are tons of references to Montana landmarks throughout.
What Dreams May Come – Robin Williams bumps into his soul mate while relaxing on a boat in Glacier Park. Epic.

Chill Factor - a crappy movie starting Cuba Gooding Jr. referenced Missoula.
Knockaround Guys – This Vin Diesel film name dropped Billings and Wibaux.
Sidenote: Many, MANY movies have been filmed in Montana. Most of which do not reference this Big Sky Statebut have used it for it’s amazing scenery. A full list of movies filmed in Montana is here.
