* ''Film/{{Clerks}}'' improved from executive meddling. First-time director Creator/KevinSmith had trouble finding a distributor, when it was suggested that part of the problem was that it had an [[DiabolusExMachina unnecessary and out-of-place]] DownerEnding in which Dante is killed by a robber. He changed the ending, and the rest is [[TheViewAskewniverse history]].

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' was the unfortunate victim of this, with the original 3 hour film being cut down to 2 1/2 hours, due to the studio being nervous about the commercial success due to the length. But when the [[Main/ReCut Ultimate Cut]] was released, many critics and audience members retracted their negative statements in praise of Zack Snyder's original vision.

** This happened in two media regarding the alien designs. The makers of the adult alien's action figure wanted to add genitals to them; the director of ''Film/AlienResurrection wanted to do the same to the "newborn" alien. Both times, the producers said no, saying it was "too much".

* ''Film/StreetFighter'': Early on, Steven E. de Souza decided that they should only include seven fighters from the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII game]] in order to avoid having a messy story and bloated cast. The representatives from Creator/{{Capcom}} initially agreed, but reneged on their promise and forced him to include nearly the entire roster, causing the core cast to balloon from seven to fifteen, which doesn't even take into account supporting roles or {{Canon Foreigner}}s. Also, Capcom really wanted de Souza to cast Japanese actor Kenya Sawada as Ryu, despite the fact that the director wast looking for a comedic actor with better English skills. The character of Captain Sawada was created as a compromise, causing the cast to bloat even further.

* Due to this tropes, ''Film/OnDangerousGround'' was supposed to have a depressing DidNotGetTheGirl ending. Executives thought that that wasn't going to go down well with audiences, so they forced director ''Creator/NicholasRay'' to cut it out. Thatís why the ending feels rather rushed; Ray refused to direct the revised final scene in question, so blocking was left to the main actors.
