* ''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. [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Yeah, we know]].

* In the 1995 film ''[[Film/{{Casper}} Casper]]'', there is a particularly odd scene where the Ghostly Trio goes inside Dr. Harvey and changes him into Clint Eastwood, Rodney Dangerfield, Mel Gibson, and the Crypt Keeper, and then reverting him back to normal. This scene is never mentioned again throughout the rest of the film, nor do the trio ever use their apparent morphing-abilities again.

* A cut scene from [[Film/ScoobyDoo the Scooby-Doo live action movie]] had Velma break out into the song "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" for no reason.

* ''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.

* The scene with the mini pterodactyls fighting over the cherry in the first ''TheLandBeforeTime'' movie. It presumably serves the purpose of [[MoodWhiplash lightening up the mood after the most tragic scene of the movie]].

* ''Film/{{North}}''
** After North meets his first set of potential adoptive parents from Texas near the end of his visit they randomly break out in a big musical number sung to the tune of the ''{{Series/Bonanza}}'' theme song with backup singers and dancers accompanying them, other than that one scene this is not a musical.

''Film/{{North}}'' has two definitive examples, [[spoiler:both of which can be justified since the events of the film were AllJustADream]].

* The entire "Humuhumunukunukuapua'a" sequence in ''HighSchoolMusical 2''. And judging from Troy's reaction, it's one of these in-universe, too. It was pointless enough that the scene was cut from the TV version and only added back in to the DVD version.

* 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.

* In the {{Bollywood}} movie ''Film/DariyaDil'', a camera pans to two costumes: Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/SpiderWoman. The lead couple is then shown dancing and flying around town in their costumes, singing "Too Mera Superman". The song ends with "Superman" in jail.
