Geocaching in Cinema

As the popularity of geocaching has grown over the years, there have been many references to it in mainstream media and even Hollywood movies. Sometimes it is only a side plot or an excuse for the characters to get away from the city, but for others it is a central plot device.

What movies or TV shows have you seen that highlight geocaching or reference it in the story? Would you recommend it for others to see?

Personally, I enjoyed the indie movie Splinterheads (2009). It was an amusing romance comedy that used Geocaching fairly prominently as a plot device to bring the main characters together. The movie is a coming of age story of Justin (Thomas Middleditch) as he joins Tracy (Rachael Taylor) on a series of geocaching adventures.

The geocaching plot of this doesn't feel shoehorned or out of place to the story and just feels like a fun hobby of the main character and they bring others along for the adventure.

I know I have seen other movies with geocaching mentioned or as a side plot, but this was one of the most natural feeling uses of it in the story. This movie may not be meant for younger audiences, but is still a worthwhile viewing for someone a little older.
