* In ''ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'', the movie takes a break from the story of two western outlaws to have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_5l6rIUu4A a musical interlude]] with the characters riding around on a bicycle. It wouldn't be ''that'' weird except for the music they chose, "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head", which is cheerful, anachronistic, incredibly out of place, and one of the things everyone remembers about the movie.

* ''Film/TheCounselor'' has a most bizarre scene where Creator/JavierBardem's character Reiner recalls once seeing his girlfriend Malkina (Creator/CameronDiaz) have sex with his car. No, that's not a metaphor or exaggeration: she literally takes off her panties, climbs on the windshield, and humps the Ferrari while he watches. There's no reason given for this at all; she's just crazy enough to do that.

* In the awful live action ''Manga/CityHunter'' movie, there is a scene where Creator/JackieChan and his opponent crash into a ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' arcade machine and then start turning into characters from the game for the remainder of the fight until someone unplugs the machine. It makes no sense and is never explained or referenced ever again.
** And it's still better than either of the full-length live action movies in every conceivable way. Well, maybe some people might have a problem with Jackie Chan dressing as Chun-Li...
* In ''Film/RedSonja'' movie, BigBad Queen Gedrin summons her wizard to identify the strangers entering her land. The wizard does his mojo on some sort of mystic scrying pool... to reveal five seconds of [[SexSells a naked dancing woman]], which fades out to Sonja and her party. No one on-screen reacts to the naked woman, not even in a "Dude, seriously?" manner.
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic suggests that the wizard just left it turned to the porno channel.
** Gedrin is a blatant lesbian, so it may have been some kind of sexual magical loading screen that she has there just for kicks.
** I hate it when I forget to clear the cache and history in my scrying pools.

** The film has, among other [=WTF=], a scene where Batwoman and her Batgirls hold a ''séance'' to get advice from the spirit world on where the [=MacGuffin=] is. Has there been supernatural content thus far? Save for another [=BLAM=] about how the Batgirls are "synthetic vampires," no. Does the scene result in anything of value? Unless you count [[UnfortunateImplications a blatantly racist portrayal of Chinese people]], nope. Is it ever mentioned again? What do you think?

** Robo-Slut counts as a BLAM. A sexy girl at a party begins ''hurling'' herself at Sam with so little subtlety that the horniest guy in the world would be shouting "Hey, lady, back off!" ''Then'' she starts sprouting metal snake-arms from her ass and sending her metal-tongue (with the flesh tongue still on the end) through car windows. At no point in ''any'' of the films is it even implied that Cybertronians can mimic humans, especially not so well that they can climb on top of and make out with a human and he has no idea. She also never appears again.
* The Film/HammerHorror film ''Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'' features... Christ alive... a ''Big Lipped Alligator rape scene''. This was added by the [[ExecutiveMeddling mandate of the American distributors]] over the objections of both actors involved, cuts immediately to a scene where the victim is making coffee and is never mentioned or hinted at again. Though to be fair, Alice is a MythologyGag to the G1 Pretenders (Transformers that hid inside shells that resembled humans or humanoid monsters), and the scene where a news report about an animatronic ''Alice in Wonderland'' diorama which tips the characters off that they're dealing with a Decepticon that scanned the animatronic as an alternate mode was cut from the final film.
* ''Film/FatalDeviation'' has one scene in which, as {{Website/Cracked}} so eloquently said it: "[[http://www.cracked.com/article_18632_irelands-only-kung-fu-movie-is-worst-film-ever-made.html This man turns up with no reason, no lines and does nothing but show his ass.]]"

* ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'' has a scene where the main character is at home with his family, and then they're attacked by machine-gun wielding Nazi werewolves. It was all a dream -- but what does this have to do with the rest of the movie? Nothing whatsoever, that's what.
** There are two (arguably flimsy) reasons for this sequence. The vivid dream-within-a-dream explains why David is initially so certain that Jack's visits are just dreams. It also introduces the audience to David's family, who is otherwise never seen in the movie. That adds a little weight to the scene where he calls home to say goodbye to them before his planned suicide.
* In ''Film/WeddingCrashers'' Jane Seymour's character comes into Owen Wilson's room, exposes her breasts, and asks Owen to touch them. He obliges and she storms off, calling him a pervert. This is never brought up again and on top of that, the scene is followed by Owen Wilson telling Creator/RachelMcAdams how much he likes her family.
-->"Did you motorboat them? You motorboated them. You motorboatin' sonofabitch!"

* The drug-fuelled orgy in ''{{Film/Zoolander}}''.
* ''Film/ClerksII'' includes a deliberate BLAM when Becky is teaching Dante to dance and the entire cast and extras break out into a lip synced rendition of ABC by the Jackson Five accompanied by a complete change in directorial style, cinematography, and colour saturation. Though you do get to see Creator/RosarioDawson bounce around on a roof.

* The super nova scene in the ''{{Series/Lexx}}'' telefilm "Super Nova." Sure, you may think a scene where a supernova occurs is supposed to be epic...but not when the two stars involved in said event suddenly start ''speaking''. '''In English'''. To the main characters. Explaining that it's time to dance. What...the...fuck?

** ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'', like many Muppet films, doesn't take itself too seriously and has plenty of anachronistic jokes and BreakingTheFourthWall. But the 'Cabin Fever' musical number in the middle of the film particularly stands out as being off the wall even in context. The scene starts off quietly with sailors looking weary from several days at sea, and then one says he's got cabin fever. The sailors start to shake, and then most of the supporting cast and background players join in as a wild musical number begins as they all sing about going mad. The number itself even randomly changes genres at times, incorporating a square dance and a Carmen Miranda homage into it at points. After the number ends, everyone seems to come to their senses. One of the characters who missed the number due to being locked in the hold asks 'What was that song? Cabin Fever'. As Clueless Morgan is a bit of a CloudCuckooLander, his companions ignore him and the whole thing is never mentioned again as the plot resumes.
*** Admittedly, Cabin Fever is essentially a form of [[OceanMadness madness]], so having a random moment of absolute crazyness that you don't remember afterwards wouldn't be that unusual for someone in that position.

** ''Film/TheMuppets'' includes an impromptu hip-hop dance number from Chris Cooper's brooding character, Tex Richman, that is promptly never mentioned again. The scene with Mary singing and dancing alone in a diner feels pretty random and irrelevant as well. The former is lampshaded directly afterwards.
*** In this case, though, it's sort of a BLAM-by-deleted scene. A verse in the middle of the hip-hop number originally had Richman suddenly switch to an Operetta tone ([=BLAM=]ish in and of itself) and explain the reason he hates the Muppets is because during their performance at a childhood birthday party, he discovered he was unable to laugh. Including that scene would have explained the character's strangest habit ("maniacal laaaaaaugh...") as well as the actual conclusion to the plot.
--> '''Tex Richman''': The answer is no.
--> '''Kermit the Frog''': Well, you could have just said that.

* ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'' has a scene interrupted by a commercial for Applebee's.
** This scene was actually a TakeThat towards the quality of NBC's NASCAR broadcasts, since the commercial occurred during an overly-long crash.

** The random blasphemous hallucinations, though. that's just Creator/KenRussell being, well, Creator/KenRussell (seriously, that kind of stuff is as iconic for him as Hitchcock's cameos, JJ Abrams's obsession with lens flare, and Speilburg's shots of people looking at things).

* In ''Film/{{UHF}}'' Weird Al's character, George is seen watching an old rerun of "The Beverly Hillbillies" as he dozes off at his desk, which leads to an odd dream sequence with Weird Al's parody of Dire Strait's "Money for Nothing" simply titled "Beverly Hillbillies," complete with a computer generated music video. While there are several other dream and musical sequences in this movie, this scene is the most out of nowhere. It also adds nothing to the plot and afterward, George awakens and the scene is never mentioned again.\\
\\
Thanks to its mass syndication on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UHF_television_broadcasting UHF channels]] in the 1980s, "The Beverly Hillbillies" was commonplace on just the sort of TV station George is managing. So its a way of introducing actual contemporary UHF television station content into "UHF".

* ''Film/BluesBrothers2000'' was arguably more BLAM than actual plot, though some were more sort of WackyWaysideTribes. The most blatant was the sequence where the new Brothers and their band end up in an incredibly fake-looking Louisiana bayou where after refusing the voodoo Queen Mousette's command to play something Caribbean, the Brothers are magically turned into green-skinned zombies to play something Caribbean anyway.

* The dance montage late in ''Film/TheBreakfastClub''. Nothing suggests that any of the characters have any interest in, or ability to, dance, and it comes out of nowhere and is never mentioned afterwards.
** Adding to the oddness of this sequence, one of the students smashes a glass door despite the fact that they're all trying to stay under the radar of the anal retentive principal. Neither the principal nor anyone else ever mentions this act of vandalism later.

* The 2010 Coen brothers' adaptation of ''Film/TrueGrit'' has the Bear Man scene. Mattie and Rooster, believing they will meet LaBoeuf on the road, wait ages in the falling snow until they see... what appears to be a bear riding a horse. It turns our it is just a very large man wearing a complete bearskin, but he isn't much less strange, as he is carrying the corpse of a hanged man in his lap, claims to be a dentist, and offers sincerely to sell them the hanged man's teeth. Mattie and Rooster are nonplussed, the film moves on, and the corpse-nabbing bear-man dentist is never seen again. [[TropesAreNotBad In other words, a quintessential Coens moment.]]

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' of all movies has one with Ray dreaming about being fellated by a beautiful female ghost who turns invisible as she unbuttons his trousers. The scene comes out of nowhere during a montage of the protagonists' success, it makes no sense whatsoever and is never mentioned afterward. It was part of a deleted scene that they found funny enough to re-insert into the movie; the context being that Ray was investigating a haunting at an old military fort and he fell asleep there.

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' has two. Olaf the Snowman's song about summer seems to have no actual bearing on the plot, but at the very least helps introduce the character. The much bigger example comes later on in the film - a family of trolls busts out in a huge synchronized musical number in which they try to set up Anna with Kristoff. One could argue that, in fact, this helps in the development of their relationship - but it doesn't change the complete out-of-nowhereness of the whole thing. It's this wild, crazy, colorful shipping party in the middle of an icy winter-themed movie. And, to be fair, it doesn't help push along the immediate plot in any way, and is commonly criticized (rightly so) for being [[MoodWhiplash right in the middle of a VERY important, VERY dramatic scene.]]
** This is partially lampshaded as the elaborate costumes that are put on Anna and Kristoff swiftly fall off with the very first movements made after the song ends.
