* Done rather creatively in ''Film/TheBigShort''. Rather than fill the viewers in on complex financial issues through traditional exposition, the film BreaksTheFourthWall to introduce celebrities to explain them. We get Margot Robbie explaining mortgage bonds in a bubblebath, Anthony Bourdain using unsold fish to illustrate how banks handle unsold mortgages, and Richard Thaler and Selena Gomez at a blackjack table illustrating how synthetic [=CDOs=] work.

* In ''{{Mnemosyne}}'', some BackStory about the Tajimamori and the "Fruits of Immortality" are filled in during a lecture at Mishio's high school. Notably, the lecture is on the topic of legends and myths but turns out to consist of [[AllMythsAreTrue pretty accurate truth]].

* In ''{{Knowing}}'', Nicholas Cage's character gives some basic information about the sun and the fate vs. free will philosophies during his college lectures. * A class presentation but one not from a teacher, Sam attempting to sell his stuff at Show and Tell in ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' when told to give a lecture on his ancestors as part of his grade. However, he is distracted by Megan Fox doing that weird thing she does with her teeth. ** In ''Revenge of the Fallen'', Sam has a "full-blown meltdown" in the middle of the first day of astronomy class, and ends up [[MotorMouth babbling at breakneck speed]] about [[ChekhovsGun various things]] that become important later on in the film.

* ''TheFinal'' opens with a {{high school}} history teacher describing how [[ImperialChina the Han Dynasty]] would sometimes [[CruelMercy leave their defeated enemies alive, disfiguring them]] in order to serve as an example to those who would oppose them. Guess what a group of pissed-off teen outcasts do with this knowledge...
