* AlPacino, from iconic performances in classic films like ''Film/TheGodfather'' and ''DogDayAfternoon'', was widely believed to be one of the greatest actors in the history of film. Al [[Film/ScentOfAWoman "HOO-AH!!"]] Pacino, from oversized performances in films like ''Film/{{S1m0ne}}'', ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' and ''Film/EightyEightMinutes'', is widely believed to enjoy {{money|DearBoy}}. Ironically, it's the latter who won the Oscar.

* Ralph Fiennes again in the ''ClashOfTheTitans'' remake, playing [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades]] in that film. In the midst of a mostly negative review in the Washington Post, the review comments that "Fiennes' appearance provides a jolt. Arriving always with his head curiously fixed within a cloud of swirling black smog, he knows how to make an entrance. His part is surely the best in the movie, and he's clearly having fun."

* ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' gave us SteveMartin as the ACME Chairman (no name given), who was undoubtedly a Dr. Evil-esque parody of James Bond villains, combined with corporation owner (arguably based on the James Bond film [[Film/TomorrowNeverDies Tomorrow Never Dies]]''). While the film wasn't exactly the greatest Looney Tunes piece ever made (quite the opposite, according to critics), Martin just went all-out with his character. In some of the developer reels, they talked about how Martin genuinely liked being silly with his character so much he would even stay in character during breaks for no other reason than because he could. [[ThrowItIn Half the stuff they threw in because he ad-libbed it on the set]].

* Brian Cox seems to be the only cast member from ''{{Troy}}'' who thinks "Ah, ItWillNeverCatchOn.", judging by his performance. "This is a man [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide drunk with power]]," he told an interviewer, "It's the best part in the ''film!"'' ** He is outdone by a fan of ''{{Troy}}'' in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QBrYq4Rg48 scene commentary]]: ''"The greatest battle of all time! MWHAHAHAHAHA!"'' ** BradPitt and Orlando Bloom had moments of this in ''{{Troy}}''. BradPitt, fully capable of all ranges in performance, looks halfway comatose unless he's got a shirtless scene, in which case he turns into a LargeHam. Bloom is clearly out to lunch for half the movie and has fun with it when his character gets lines.

* ChristopherWalken in ''The Country Bears''. It's one of Disney's mostly forgettable 'family films'. However, Walken's completely over-the-top performance as the [[VaudevilleVillain evil banker]] makes it a lot more tolerable.

* ''GrandiaXtreme'' isn't particularly well-remembered or well-liked, but it's worth it alone just to hear MarkHamill ham it up so hard that it makes [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries his]] [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum work]] as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker seem subdued. * ChristopherWalken ''again'' as Detective Magnotta in the early-nineties FullMotionVideo adventure game ''{{Ripper}}''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9xiZoIiTJHw#t=97s His performance]] could best be described as Walken doing a bad impression ''of himself''. It's '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFKylgGk73I un-fucking believable]]!'''.

* Many critics have said that Nicole Parker is the only part of a SeltzerAndFriedberg "film" that's even remotely enjoyable to watch. Critics said that while her roles in ''Epic Movie'' and ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Disaster Movie]]'' consist of just dressing up like celebrities and other movie characters and delivering some very low-grade "jokes", she actually puts some effort in it, and overacts with a style to the point where she can almost get a laugh.

* In ''Series/{{Batman}}'', Victor Buono loved appearing on the show as King Tut since cutting loose and being a LargeHam with the overacting was practically a job requirement.

** The {{Rifftrax}} for ''Film/{{Eragon}}'' refers to John Malkovich as "the [[LargeHam ham's]] [[IncomingHam ham]]. He makes Al Pacino look subtle."

** He pretty much did it again for ''Film/TronLegacy'' - his maniacal, campy DavidBowie impersonation made him one of the great highlights and sources of comedy in an otherwise dreary, over-serious film.

* While Christopher Lambert wasn't this in ''Highlander'', he certainly made up for it when he got cast as [[WTHCastingAgency Raiden]] for the ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie. He and Linden Ashby (Johnny Cage) were pretty much tossing the comedy ball back and forth for the whole film.
