* Played with in ''CitizenKane.'' "You're still eating?" "I'm still hungry."
* In {{Avatar}} Colonel Quaritch is sipping coffee in the cockpit of his flagship, while it's barraging the [[SpaceElves Na'Vi]] Hometree with missiles. Because [[MemeticMutation Colonel Quaritch doesn't give a fuck about your Na'Vi]].
* The Evil Popcorn Eating Guy from ''FreeWilly''. He can ruin [[MemeticMutation any moving or emotional scene]] simply by eating a single piece of popcorn, like a cynical and heartless bastard. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQmZwLErQJg Watch]].

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', Fred is often seen with snack food, even in serious situations. He was originally intended to be [[TheStoner a stoner]], but those references were taken out to make the movie PG, leaving a habit for snacking that's still pretty funny. They may never directly mention any pot use, but damn near ''everything'' about Fred's personality [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar still implies it]].

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', Happens in ''Film/GalaxyQuest'':
** [[TheCaptain Jason]] is more interested in sipping on his coke than listening to BigBad Saris on their first encounter on the bridge. Justified as he [[AndYouThoughtItWasAGame mistakes the situation for a staged act]].

* This has become a staple of actor Creator/BradPitt who actually stashes snacks around the sets so he can have a bite to eat while filming a scene, which ends up getting [[ThrowItIn thrown in]] because he tends to incorporate it into the character he's playing ''flawlessly''.

* [[http://imgur.com/gallery/OevvBMO This picture of a guy breaking up with his girlfriend while eating Cheetos]] became viral after it was posted on Reddit. Doubles as a StealthPun if the reason for the break-up was cheating.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the TortureTechnician called "The Tickler" spends all his torture sessions casually eating a pear while he questions his victims. This shows his [[InappropriateHunger callous detachment to the pain his inflicting]]. Appropriately, [[spoiler:when Jaqen H'ghar kills The Tickler by pushing him down from a window, he's seen munching on a pear in plain sight while everyone gathers to inspect the corpse]].

** Used deliberately by [[MagnificentBastard Hannibal]]. Knowing that the Romans are barely eating any meat, he set up lightly-guarded, easy to take herd of cattle, which was assisting his own army. As expected, when they learned about it, the Romans came in, take the herd after short fight, butchered most of the animals and started eating. When everyone was full and could barely move, [[CurbStompBattle Hannibal's troops arrived]].
