Do you think Darth Vader ever used a credit card? What about Forrest Gump, or Crocodile Dundee? Did Hannibal Lector pay for his side of fava beans and Chianti with cash or credit?
Credit cards can often be found on the silver screen, in the hands of some of our favourite stars and starlets. Here are three of our favourite plastic fantastic credit card movie moments!
Batman and Robin
Before Christopher Nolan put the darkness back into the Dark Knight, the caped crusader was portrayed by none other than George Clooney in the semi-infamous 90s film Batman and Robin.
At one stage, Batman finds himself in a bidding war against his young ward, Robin. The pair are both competing for a night alone with the beautiful Poison Ivy, and the action quickly gets heated.
"One million!" cries Batman. "Two million!" replies Robin. The bidding climbs higher and higher, with Robin remarking, "That's a utility belt, not a money belt!" Batman's customised 'GothCard' eventually wins the day. And believe it or not, that's not even nearly the movie's cheesiest moment.
Who could ever forget Julia Roberts' star-making turn as lady-of-the-night Vivian Ward in everyone's favourite romantic comedy/guilty pleasure, Pretty Woman?
Roberts' finest moment comes when her character – credit cards in hand – visits an upper-class fashion store on Hollywood's famous Rodeo Drive.
After being ruthlessly snubbed by a stuck-up shop attendant, she returns later carrying an armful of shopping bags, and gleefully waves at the shocked employee.
Home Alone 2
There's a good reason you have to be a certain age to own a credit card, as we all discovered in Chris Columbus' 1992 movie Home Alone 2.
In the film, Macaulay Culkin, portraying 10-year-old Kevin McCallister, finds himself alone in New York City after getting on to the wrong plane and becoming separated from his family.
Always one to make the most of a bad situation, McCallister uses his father's credit card information to book a room in Manhattan's very swish Plaza Hotel. His improvised holiday doesn't last long, however, as the concierge – portrayed in classic over-the-top fashion by Tim Curry – catches on to his trick and sends him on his way.
