* ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' serves up a good one. The heroine, Bethany, is about to be beaten to death by some wicked teenage hockey-playing demons. Just as they're about to strike, JayAndSilentBob leap into action to save the day by beating the crap out of them. "Snooch to the muthafuckin' Noooooooch!"

* In the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries'', these are somewhat plentiful and frequently awesome. Film 1 has Bumblebee saving Sam from a pack of [[AngryGuardDog angry guard dogs]], Bumblebee saving Sam & Mikaela from Barricade, Optimus saving Sam & Mikaela from corrupt government officials (though this one doesn't work out so well), and Bumblebee & Mikaela saving the soldiers from Brawl. Film 2 has Bumblebee saving Sam & his parents from the kitchen appliances brought to life by the Allspark shard, Optimus & Bumblebee saving Sam & Mikaela from [[spoiler:the revived Megatron]], Jetfire showing up in the final battle to kill Mixmaster [[spoiler:and Scorponok]], and Bumblebee saving Sam & co. from [[spoiler:Rampage & Ravage]]. ...Bumblebee gets to do a lot of these, doesn't he?

** Cue two torpedoes destroying the Borg cutting beam as the massive Enterprise swoops between the two ships ([[ThemeMusicPowerUp while the TNG theme pounds away in the background]]), drawing the cube's fire and suffering no damage! Picard then tops this by taking command of the fleet and ordering them to concentrate their fire on a single, non-vital spot, which opens up its secondary power relay to a direct assault from the Enterprise's quantum torpedoes. The formerly "invincible" Borg cube was destroyed within ''seconds''.

* Subverted in ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'', when, just as it looks as though XXX Corps is going to break through to relieve the besieged paratroopers and make the plan a success, the Allied offensive runs out of steam just a mile short of Arnhem.

* Subverted Lampshaded in ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'', ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'' when Creator/MichaelCaine's character quips that it would be bad form for TheCavalry to arrive ahead of schedule. "In the nick of time would do nicely." However the trope is averted when, just as it looks as though XXX Corps is going to break through to relieve the besieged paratroopers and make the plan a success, the Allied offensive runs out of steam just a mile short of Arnhem.
