A bunch of people are babbling or arguing all at once. This often happens in some sort of crisis situation, especially when most of the people involved are just civilians and they don't know how else to react. Unfortunately, all their noisy anger/panic/confusion etc. is preventing any real conversation or coordination. (Moreover, it's preventing the audience from actually listening to any particular line of dialogue) Somebody needs to take charge and act like a leader. The leader may start by simply talking to people, but he finds that no one can really hear him. In any case, he decides to make a really loud noise to make everybody else shut up. This may involve a loud "SHUT UP!", or it may involve some other way of making noise, such as firing a gun into the air.

Related to BigShutUp, but differs because it only applies when the intention is to shut up a noisy crowd, and it may involve non-vocal ways of doing so.

* ''Film/KungFuHustle'' has an entire slum of hundreds of people air their grievances to the miserly, miserable old Landlady after she snaps at a resident who just saved them all from getting massacred by gangs. Her response is to calmly put out her cigarette and scream '''SHUT THE HELL UP!''', which lasts so long and so loud that it shatters glass. [[spoiler:It hints that she's not exactly an untrained civilian - her power is based around [[MakeMeWannaShout shouting.]]]]
* In ''GuiltyBySuspicion'' (a film about the RedScare), at the top of the film we're at a party with lots of people chattering, and one gets everyone's attention by saying "Ladies and gentlemen...Ladies and Gentlemen!....'''COMRADES!''' That got your attention, huh?" Note that it wasn't a communist meeting, just a get-together, but it was later cited as a communist meeting during the protagonist's trial.
* ''Film/KindergartenCop'' had Arnold Schwartzenegger's character do that to a kindergarten class. They shut up all right... then they start crying.

* This happens several times in Muppet films.
** In Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper, Kermit tries to call the meeting of him and the Happiness Hotel's gang to order with a loud, "QUIET!" upon which everyone stops talking...except for Janice. "...So I said, 'Look, mother, it's my life, okay? So if I want to live on the beach and walk around naked- oh." The second time is when everyone is making excuses to not go stop the crooks, Fozzie shouts them down so he can make a RousingSpeech.
** In Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol, Fozzie, as Fezziwig, tries to get everyone's attention at his Christmas party, Animal bellows, "QUIET!" After the noise stops, he mutters, "Thank you..."
