RiffTrax of Jurassic Park, demonstrating what some creators must think is going to happen when they use this trope

"Just because there are celebrities in a movie, it doesn't mean anything. I don't think The Ant Bullynote  did all that well the first week at the box office."

"It's ridiculous - The industry spends so much money on celebrities, then they write off the duds and sell the DVDs. Maybe they think this is the formula for success. They'll pay someone $10 million to come down from Mt. Olympus and sit in a studio for two weeks, and 'this is my fairy princess voice, this is my astronaut, this is my carrot voice.' But it's them. There's no alchemy going on, there's no transformation."
