You arrive on set to find what seems to be a film GoneHorriblyWrong, complete with SpecialEffectsFailure, [[DullSurprise bad actors]] and a worse script. So what do you do? You could go "ScrewThisImOuttaHere", storm off and refuse to associate with the film ever again, you could [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously take the film seriously]], try with all your might to make it work... ''or'' you could unleash [[LargeHam The Hog]], and [[ChewingTheScenery Chew The Scenery]] into ''dust''.

* Although the movie isn't awful, ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid 2 - Return to the Sea'' has Pat Caroll as Morgana, Ursula's sister.[[note]]Caroll played Ursula herself in the first movie.[[/note]] Her EvilGloating in the climax is cheesy as hell, but her spectacular hamminess makes it very enjoyable.

** And then years later they pretty much gave the same gimmick to Damien Sandow and he managed to make it even campier.

* Ralph Fiennes again in the ''Film/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."

* In a similar vein, Lanny Poffo as The Genius. A talented, dexterous wrestler who was doing flips and high-flying stuff before it was truly appreciated, he was saddled with a cheesy heel gimmick in the late 80s where he would read condescending poetry before each match, while wearing an academic dress and mortarboard hat. To say Poffo made the most of it would be putting it mildly: he wound up playing the gimmick as [[{{Camp}} campy and flamboyant as he possibly could]].

* ''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.
