No Indoor Voice: Live-Action Films
  • Faith Dane as Miss Mazeppa in Gypsy.
    SOMETHIN' WRONG WITH STRIPPIN'?!?!?
  • Used in a scene from the film Anchorman. Ron Burgundy and the news team are complaining to each other about Na´ve Newcomer Veronica Corningstone, shouting out their feelings rather than calmly talking about the situation. The normally quiet and reserved Brick Tamland has no idea why they're yelling about when they're all in the same room, but plays along with them anyway.
  • The title god of Thor.
  • Leonidas from 300. Just thought we'd mention that.
    • Strangely Subverted in the graphic novel the movie was based on, where Leonidas is typically speaking in a normal voice unless the situation demands yelling.
  • Spoofed in Austin Powers because shortly after he was unfrozen he had trouble controlling THE VOLUME of his voice.
  • The entire female cast of Mamma Mia! whenever they are together. Why are they shouting all the time?
  • Max Bialystock from The Producers, when he gets angry.
  • Biff Tannen's cyborg grandson Griff Tannen from Back to the Future Part II.
    "HEY, MCFLY!"
  • Don't forget the Nut Vendor from Kung Pow! Enter the Fist...
    • "THAT'S A LOT OF NUTS!!"
    • "THAT'LL BE FOUR BUCKS BABY! YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT!?"
    • "HE JUST LEFT!... WITH NUTS!"
  • Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead:
    "I'M IN CHARGE OF THIS MONKEY FARM NOW, FRANKENSTEIN, AND I WANNA KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE DOING WITH MY TIME!!!"
  • CROKER in Evil Alien Conquerors. Justified because he's a 100 foot tall giant who's been shrunken down to about six feet, and hasn't even noticed yet, much less learned to tone down his voice accordingly.
    "YOUR TINY VOICE BARELY REACHES MY HUGE EARS!!!"
  • In Bus Stop, Don Murray's character Bo ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE YELLING about something and causing a scene. One of the many, many facets of his inherent jerkassery.
  • While Jim Carrey often falls for it, he yells the most in Liar Liar. During the trial scenes it's justified (a lawyer needs to be passionate) but on other scenes he's just frustrated ("STOP BREAKING THE LAW, ASSHOLE!").
  • Pretty much the schtick of any Drill Sergeant Nasty, especially the Trope Codifier, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket.
    • The one from Forrest Gump puts a new spin on it by praising Forrest at the top of his lungs.
  • William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet.
    Abra: "DO YOU BITE YOUR THUMB AT US SIR?"
    Sampson: "I DO BITE MY THUMB SIR!"
    Abra: "DO YOU BITE YOUR THUMB AT US! Sir."
    [...]
    Sampson: "NO I DO NOT BITE MY THUMB AT YOU SIR BUT I BITE MY THUMB SIR!"
    • Made even more ridiculous when Sampson's comic aside to Gregory, "Is the law on our side if I say 'Ay'?" is screamed so that the two enemy servants can clearly hear him.
  • Rob Schneider's character in Down Periscope as the jittery Number Two on a World War II diesel submarine which is supposed to go up against a modern-day navy. While's it's his job as an XO to relay The Captain's orders for everyone to hear, he does this even when just talking to someone.
  • King Henry II in The Lion in Winter never stops yelling. EVER. The whole film is a two and a half hour shouting match between him and 4 other Large Ham characters and it's as exhausting as it sounds.
  • Christian Bale in Terminator Salvation. His portrayal of the elder John Connor as a military genius seems to consist of CONSTANTLY SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS VOICE NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING.
  • Every character in every film ever made by Ron Atkins.
  • The children in Woodchipper Massacre.
  • Captain Kip Kelley in Princess Diaries 2 constantly yells, feeling it is proper decorum. Resident Deadpan Snarker and best friend Lilly Moscovitz points this out to him and engages in some Lampshade Hanging
  • Gilbert Gottfried in anything he's ever appeared in.
  • Gordon Cole, a character in the tv show "Twin Peaks" and the film that followed it, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" always yells because he suffers from 99 percent hearing loss. Gordon Cole is played by David Lynch, the director of the film and co-creator of the show.
  • Fellini films generally feature quite a lot of shouting.
  • Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
  • Al Pacino suffers from this in just about any role he's had since about 1983.
  • Taken to the absolute extreme with God in Dogma, whose voice is lethally loud, and, unfortunately, she is incapable of toning it down. Hence the need for Metatron, the spokesangel.
  • Baron Harkonnen in Dune is ridiculously loud, as well as generally hammy.
