** ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'': Two messages to hammer home: TheVietnamWar was bad-''bad''-''BAD'' (and anyone who thinks otherwise is either dumb, a {{Jerkass}}, or otherwise seriously misguided), and [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped we must take care of our veterans.]]

-->'''Nelson Mandela:''' Someone gave me this note when I was leaving Boi Patong, and I want to read it to you. ''[reads from note]'' It says, "No peace; do not talk about peace. We have had enough. Please, Mr. Mandela, no peace. Give us weapons, not peace." ''[puts note aside]'' Here is my answer There is only one way forward...and that is peace. I know that is not what you want to hear, but there is no other way. I am your leader, and as long as I am your leader I am going to give you leadership! As long as I am your leader, I am going to tell you, always, when you are wrong. And I tell you now, you are wrong. I have given my life to the struggle, I have been willing to die, I have lost 27 years of my life in prison. But I tell you now, I have forgiven them. If I can forgive them, then you can forgive them. We cannot win a war, but we can win an election. So, my people; stay home, be peaceful, and when Election Day comes...vote!

* In ''Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'', Nelson Mandela gives an especially anviliscious televised speech near the end of the film.

** Disagree. With the chorus of anvils about how war is bad and Americans are evil, I found this movie to be about how Americans are the dicks Gotham (Western society) deserves, but not the one it needs right now, so we'll hate them because they're not our hero, they're our reckless, arrogant, stupid guardians.

** Which borders on a FantasticAesop because you'd have to be a [[BeavisAndButthead complete and total idiot]] to actually eat nothing but fast food for an entire month, and to force feed it to yourself even if you're full, and to suddenly switch to such a diet from a completely antithetical diet. The [[ComeforTheXStayForTheY secondary bits of the movie]] that don't involve Morgan force-feeding himself, while not exactly even-handed, are far more sensible.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' doesn't make any effort to hide Nolan's skepticism of the Occupy movements.

* ''Film/FacingTheGiants'' keeps bringing up God in every other sentence; every time something good happens, who do they thank? God. It's to the point in which some might consider this Christian Propaganda disguised as a football movie.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfTheHunchback'' is not subtle at all, specially with the moral of the story: TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside. [[AsTheGoodBookSays It even quotes the Bible]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfTheHunchback'' is not subtle at all, specially with the moral of the story: TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside. It keeps saying that by making it a constant discussion, [[AsTheGoodBookSays It even quotes telling that the Bible]].Bible tells you that you should respect ugly or deformed people]], and putting a full song with that purpose.

* Like Stone, AaronSorkin seems to have this as part of his brand. His latter-day screenplays are arguably less and less guilty of this, though.
