* 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.

* James Doohan is overplaying things just a tad in ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'', best exemplified in the scene where - in the midst of [[PrideBeforeAFall talking about how how he knows the ship like the back of his hand]] - he hits his head on a doorframe and does a hugely over-sold collapse to the ground.

** Chris Egan had only a bit part as Roran, but managed to spin it into a staring role on the vastly superior but tragically short-lived ''Series/{{Kings}}'' alongside the legendary Ian [=McShane=].

* Kate Nauta in ''Film/TheTransporter 2''. It's pretty clear from her line delivery and facial expressions that once she read the script (which calls for her character, [[TheDragon Lola]], to spend half her screentime wearing a soaking-wet negligee, disheveled hair and runny eye makeup while dual-wielding pistols and gunning down all manner of individuals), she decided to take it as far as she could, and she looks to be the only person not to deliver the cornball material in a serious manner.

* The [[{{Film/Spawn}} film adaption]] of ''Spawn'' is considered lackluster at best, with a weak story and special effects that looked old when it was released in the 90's. Among all this however is JohnLeguizamo, who seemed to realize what he was acting in, and hammed up his scene stealing role as The Clown/The Violator.

* Piper Laurie in the 1976 version of ''Literature/{{Carrie}}''. Upon reading the script, she believed that the film was a BlackComedy due to how over-the-top her character, Carrie's [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] [[MyBelovedSmother mother]] Margaret, was, to the point where director Creator/BrianDePalma at one point had to pull her aside to remind her that they were, in fact, making a serious horror film. It still didn't stop her from hamming it up and laughing hysterically between takes. [[TropesAreTools It ultimately turned out well for everybody involved]], as her performance was the reason why Margaret White became one of the most terrifying villains in horror movie history. The kicker? She ''[[http://www.npr.org/2013/10/18/236234923/carrie-had-the-power-but-mom-had-the-scary-going-on still]]'' thinks the film is a BlackComedy.
