* On ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', Creator/AlexTrebek often re-records his reading of a clue in post if he stumbles over a word, but no lip-synching is involved because the screen usually shows the text of the clue rather than his face.

* On ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', Creator/AlexTrebek often re-records his reading of a clue in post if he stumbles over a word, but no lip-synching is involved because the screen usually shows the text of the clue rather than his face. This was taken to its logical extreme in a week of episodes in 2015, where ''all'' of the clues were re-recorded in post due to Alex having a cold at the time of taping that left him sounding very rough. A disclaimer was added at the start of episode indicating as such.

* The album version of the special ''Creator/BillCosby: Himself'', in addition to abridging many of the sketches, also loops lines at least twice: at one point, to cover up a flubbed line about "[[RunningGag brain damage]]", and at another point in the "Chocolate Cake for Breakfast" skit when he accidentally says that he was awakened at 4 AM instead of 6 AM.

* ''ThePresidentsAnalyst'' - during production, J. Edgar Hoover apparently expressed his disapproval of the portrayal of his agency, the FBI (and his own proxy character), so they changed the name to the FBR (Federal Board of Regulation), along with the CIA, now the CEA (Central Enquiries Agency) - footage already shot has obvious overdubs for the name changes.

A disclaimer at the film's beginning heavily lampshades this.

* Happens all the time with Tommy Wiseau's lines in ''Film/TheRoom'', for no adequately explained reason. Even in the interviews on the DVD, looped sentences and fragments appear seemingly at random.

It's incredibly obvious whenever it happens, because [[HongKongDub the words don't match up to the lip flaps at all]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Many'' instances in the ''Film/{{Clue}}'' feature film. For example, in one scene, the police rush the mansion and Martin Mull's Colonel Mustard throws his hands up in surrender, exclaiming "I'm only a guest!" However, his lip movements don't match the words being said, and in fact one TV spot for the film featured the unaltered scene; Mull ''actually'' said "I'm only a dinner guest!", with ''very'' different tonal inflections.

This is much more common than you may think. As a rule of thumb, any time you hear an actor make a noise and you can't clearly see their mouth on screen, it's been ADR'd. This technique is used on a wider and more noticeable scale in Asian live-action productions, particularly UsefulNotes/{{Bollywood}} and Japanese {{tokusatsu}} and ''{{Dorama}}'' television serials.

If the delivery suddenly sounds much more polished and you can't clearly see their mouth on screen, it's closer to the microphone, they've been ADR'd.

** Looping was a fact of life for ''every'' actor in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe). The most well-known case is Darth Vader, who was famously played by David Prowse but voiced by James Earl Jones, as no one would be afraid of Prowse's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSm9DDxQv8E voice]]. Prowse wasn't informed of this until the movie came out.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' -- the entire trilogy -- was dubbed in post: the enormous noise of the fans and the assorted background noise made it impossible to hear any of the dialogue. That is, the whirling bladed fans, not the squeeing or complaining ones.

*** This trope is often completely averted with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gonzo_pornography "gonzo"]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality_pornography "reality"]] porn, where all the live audio is left in, up to and including "actor" directions. There's a bit of a BrokenBase as to whether or not this adds positives to the scenes (with the director acting as something of a narrartor) or renders said scenes unwatchable with the sound on.
* Hugo Weaving as V in ''Film/VForVendetta'' had to dub all of his lines, because of the mask.
** Also because V was recast. He was originally played by James Purefoy, who left a few weeks into filming. Due to the mask, they only had to redub rather than reshoot the scenes.

* An infamous goof in ''Film/{{Eegah}}'' was a result of the botching of one of these: at one point, while the main characters are walking, one of them suddenly "shouts" "Watch out for snakes!" despite the fact that the character ''isn't speaking'' and the quality of the line's audio not matching the rest of the movie. As such, "Watch out for snakes!" has become a RunningGag on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', (where ''Eegah'' was shown) and went through a bit of MemeticMutation as well.

** The Bond films in general rely heavily on ADR for the same reason as the ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy.
*** To the extent that the ''007 Stage'' at Pinewood Studios, while the world's largest stage, is a silent stage, as its primary use if for big action scenes.

* Bane's dialogue in Film/TheDarkKnightRises had to be looped twice, as feedback from an earlier version of the film found that his voice was ''too'' muffled. Compare [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vBW6jvspF8&hd=1 the original]] to [[https://youtu.be/-Li998pZxwU?t=89&hd=1 the final version]].
