The Best Uses of Dean Martin Songs in Movies

It’s amazing to think that Dean Martin, born Dino Crocetti, came up in such a hard manner. He was a boxer, a steel mill worker, and even worked in a casino. He teamed up with Jerry Lewis at one point and the pair made about 16 movies together in 11 years. After their split it was assumed the Dean wouldn’t really go anywhere with his career but he proved everyone wrong when he went even further into his acting and into his music. His golden pipes could be heard virtually everywhere, be it TV or film, and eventually he became something of a household name.

Dean Martin’s music can be heard even today in several films that are still in circulation or have just recently come out.

5. You I Love – Sandy Wexler

It’s pretty common to hear classic rock from the 1960’s and 70’s in Sandler’s films but maybe it’s a sign that he’s maturing when you can begin to hear older classics from such performers as Dean Martin. It might simply allude to the fact that the character of Sandy Wexler is a little more old-fashioned and isn’t as into the rock scene, but once again, maybe that’s just Sandler finally growing up a little more.

4. Ain’t That A Kick In The Head – Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

This seems like kind of an odd selection to put into a Mission Impossible soundtrack, but it kind of makes sense. Mission Impossible is a classic show, and has featured a wide variety of music in the film and on its soundtracks since it became a hit movie series. There’s nothing saying that a little Dean Martin couldn’t go a long way towards giving the film a different sound that might enhance the experience.

3. That’s Amore – Bridget Jones’ Baby

Maybe it’s a little too much amore. We’ve all seen Bridget Jones before in film, and quite honestly we know the woman’s not so lonely that she can’t find a date. The trouble she gets herself into in this film has more to do with the fact that she found a way to stave of loneliness, but it also managed to insure that she wouldn’t ever be alone again. How in the world would you handle a situation in which you had no idea who was the father of your child?

2. Grazie, Prego, Scusi – Old Dogs

One day you meet up with the woman of your dreams again and you think that life couldn’t have taken a luckier turn. And then it drops that she has kids. And then she informs you that the kids are yours. Need we go on? Yes we do because the funny doesn’t stop there. Add into this equation that your life is in no way equipped to handle children at this moment and you’ve got at least an inkling of what direction things might be headed.

1. Baby It’s Cold Outside – Four Christmases

What’s more hectic, Christmas with the family, or four Christmases with four different families? Oy, if this was what the holidays was truly like with split families it would be no wonder that a couple would seek to avoid them all and head out of town without telling them.

There are numerous films out there with Dean Martin’s sweet voice still crooning to heighten whatever scene the song is attached to.  Thankfully he had the kind of voice that most people don’t want to forget.
