** ''Film/LegallyBlonde'': "BEND AND SNAP!"



** Even in ''Film/{{Wild}}'', her most restrained performance to date, her opening scene has her yelling at the top of her lungs:
--> (throws boot off cliff) '''FUCK YOU, BITCH!''' (lets out a SkywardScream).

* Reese Witherspoon has the unique distinction of hamming it, even when she's playing straight, as she makes so much exaggerated facial expressions per second (squinting, pursing lips, raising eyebrows, etc.), it would make any ham lover full. Here are some of her best:

SNAP!"
** ''Film/WalkTheLine'' is a subverted example, as she definitely overacts while on stage, it's intentional as her character usually performs comedic bits before singing.
** Even in ''Film/{{Wild}}'', her most restrained performance to date, her opening scene has her yelling at the top of her lungs:
--> (throws boot off cliff) '''FUCK YOU, BITCH!''' (lets out a SkywardScream).

** Vanessa Lutz in ''Film/{{Freeway}}'' has Witherspoon devouring the entire movie. With a southern twang, no less:
-->[[ItMakesSenseInContext "Well, pee in there, motherfucker!]] I ain't kiddin'! ''NOW!''"
** Her performance in ''Film/{{Election}} is basically an over-the-top parody of the most condescending student in your class, turned up to 11, and while mostly restrained, she has plenty of delicious outbursts.
*** ([[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger while pointing, of course]]) "YOU'RE GOING TO PAY FOR MY HAM!"

* Creator/MichaelShannon's [[Film/ManOfSteel version of Zod]] can be quite hammy as well. While he's most restrained and cool, his VillainousBreakdown and MadnessMantra near the beginning of the movie is pretty delicious.
-->'''Zod''': ''Jor-El was right! You're a pack of '''fools''', every last one of you! And you... you believe your son is safe... I will find him. I will reclaim what you have taken from us! I will find him. I will find him, Lara. ({{Beat}}) ''''I WILL FIND HIM!''''
* The follow-up to the new Zod was, appropriately, Lex Luthor in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. And Jesse Einsenberg gives the expected ham, with talky dialogue [[MotorMouth spoken really fast]], a perpetually manic mood ("Ow-wow! That is a good grip!You should not pick a fight with this person!") and a ridiculous haircut that just fits the overacting.

--> '''Luthor''': Ding ding ding! Gotham roasts, ''extra crispy''!
** And when he's taunting Superman:
--> '''Lex''': Fight night! The greatest gladiator match in the history of the world. God versus man! Day versus night! ''SON OF KRYPTON''…versus '''BAT OF GOTHAM'''!

** Edna Mode certainly qualifies as well, with delivery of such lines as "I used to design for ''gods''," and "Go! Confront the problem! Fight! '''WIN!'''" It says something that Lily Tomlin, the director's first choice to play the role and no stranger to scenery-chewing herself, felt that she couldn't do it justice.

** Speaking of Chief Inspector Clouseau, in [[Franchise/ThePinkPanther Revenge of the Pink Panther]], when he disguised as a "Salty Swedish Seadog" complete with a peg leg and inflatable parrot, his mangling of the sea shanty "Dead Man's Chest" climaxes in a really hammy manner deviating from the true lyrics even more:

* ''EarthGirlsAreEasy'' had him in a natural role - a randy space alien with a talent for mimicry, at one point imitating James Dean out of nowhere, wailing "You're ''TEARING me aPAAAAHRT!!!''
