* ''Literature/{{Congo}}'' was a book by Creator/MichaelCrichton without much comic relief to speak of. Then, in TheFilmOfTheBook, someone got Creator/BruceCampbell to show up for five minutes just so killer gorillas could throw human eyeballs at him and then slaughter him off-camera as he screams. Then they brought TimCurry in as a "Romanian Philanthropist" who is "[[VampireVords Travelink de vorld und doink goot!]]" - and the gorillas kill him too! Delroy Lindo shows up too, asking for "More" money, calling Tim Curry a "Big Bag of Shit" and telling him to '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis STOP EATING MY SESAME CAKE!]]''''' He stays home, so he doesn't get killed by gorillas.

* In a series which has been suffering from SeasonalRot, many found the over-the-top performances of Rebecca Mader as [[Literature/TheWizardOfOz Zelena]] and Greg Germann as [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Hades]] to be the only saving graces of ''[[Series/OnceUponATime Once Upon a Time's]]'' fifth season.
** [[Creator/RobertCarlyle]] manages the rare feat of being both this ''and'' TookTheBadFilmSeriously due to the dual nature of his character Rumplestiltskin. One moment he's giving a heart wrenching performance as a tragic villain, only for him to chew the scenery for all it's worth as the Dark One in the very next scene.

* The 1964 adaptatiom of ''Literature/LordJim'' is pretty boring... until you meet Creator/EliWallach 's [[Fil/TheMagnificentSeven Calvera]]-like Arab overlord "The General", a lisping, mincing man with an awful buzzcut, who struts around in a black vest, pretty much having the time of his life.

* Wrestling/ShawnMichaels used this to do a TakeThat to Hulk Hogan, when backstage politics lead to him getting buried in a match. Michaels, rather than try to turn in the normal top-tier performance you're supposed to try for a PPV, spent the whole match [[http://gifcrap.com/d/1258-1/Shawn+Michaels+overselling+for+Hulk+Hogan.gif flying around the ring]] in ways that would make a RagdollPhysics programmer think he was overdoing it.
** You can also count on this whenever Michaels teams up with Wrestling/TripleH (rarely these days, unfortunately) in D-Generation X. Wrestling/{{WWE}} is so intrinsically absurd anyway that you tend to [[SeenItAll get used to all the folderol]] and usually manage only a mild chuckle - but DX will make you laugh right out loud. ''Uncontrollably''.
* [[WadeBarrett Bad News Barrett]]. While it isn't enough to redeem the gimmick in some fans eyes, he ''clearly'' enjoys it.

** 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.

* ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' gave us Creator/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]].

** Had a cast of veteran actors, including big profile stars Aaron Eckhart and Oscar winner Creator/HilarySwank. Yet Creator/StanleyTucci seems to have been the only person in it that was aware of the utter ridiculousness of the plot and thus provided a really campy performance. He is arguably the most entertaining thing in the movie. You can't necessarily tell from his performance, but Creator/AaronEckhart later admitted [[http://www.urbancinefile.com.au/home/view.asp?a=7475&s=interviews in an interview]] that he could barely keep a straight face through most of his lines.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', while not a ''bad'' movie, is widely criticized for being overly dark and dreary. However, Creator/JesseEisenberg as Lex Luthor is the sole exception, portraying the character as completely insane and more akin to The Riddler. Needless to say, he is deemed by some as one of the sole spots of levity and humor in the film.

** He's only in a few scenes, the title for the largest ham in Eragon has to go to John Malkovich, who, along with his silly over the top costume, emphasises every single sylable and sound.

** ''Film/BatmanForever'' has JimCarrey babbling about "brainwave manipulation", stating that his neon wardrobe keeps him "safe while he's jogging at night." Ham and cheese on rye. One gets the impression that TommyLeeJones was using the film as an excuse to enjoy himself as well. Case in point, the entire sequence involving the attack on Wayne Manor.
** UmaThurman's performance in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. She clearly thought she was signing up for something good (Batman? And Creator/GeorgeClooney and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger are gonna be in it? Sounds awesome!) and then...got the script. And saw the sickeningly neon costumes. She plays Poison Ivy as a completely over-the-top villainess, and she's clearly having a fabulous time doing it. One of the very few saving graces of that movie. The same goes for Schwarzenegger, who admitted to hating the [[AnIcePerson Mr. Freeze]] armor he had to keep wearing. He sure looks like he's having fun though.

* About 50% of the ouevre of Creator/ChristopherWalken is this, especially since TheNineties. It is an article of faith in Hollywood that, if you have a real stinker of a movie, just give a supporting role to Walken, and that'll be good for an extra two or three stars on Website/IMDb. And you know what? It's true.
