There's a guy in The Dark Knight Rises who has taken upstaging to new heights. During one of the scenes in the pit where the inmates are chanting for Batman to escape, one of the extras looks directly at the camera. It's literally a fleeting second where his eyes flicker straight towards the camera while everyone else looks skywards. But it really, really bugged me! I need to see it again just to make sure it wasn't my imagination, but when I was sitting in the cinema I immediately had to turn to my girlfriend and say "did you see that?" To which she replied "shut up, I'm watching the film." Fair play.

Another one from Star Wars is the strutting Tie Fighter pilot who follows Vader in the corridor during the battle of Yavin, as Vader heads towards (presumably) the hangar bay.

His walk is just ridiculous

A guy in Star Trek Generations, who the writers point out in commentary - after the Klingons have been blown up, the camera goes back to our heros and just before Data does a fist pump, an extra does his own little version of it. Once you see it, you cannot but help see it every time from then on.

Don't want to seem like I'm stalking you or anything, but I agree. That guy is annoying and I am angry at myself for not thinking of him first

Also, the dude with his trousers unbuttoned at the end of Teen Wolf.....

Ever since I'm aware of the kid's crotch-pointing antics I can't watch that scene without being completly taken out of the film.

Near the end of 2012 when they're on the ship, there's a crew member who looks like Alan Carr and there's two scenes where the ship gets hit and in both he does a ridiculously camp "ohmygod we're gonna die!" look which makes him look even more like Alan Carr.

annoying isn't quite the word as the mrs and I piss ourselves each time we see it...

Such bizarre delivery on that line.

Spoilers, man.

In, I think, Empire Strikes Back, Vader is talking to Needa (maybe) and he turns round to give someone else an order and the guy is like 6 inches away from his face. Always makes me laugh.

"bomb ? Did he say......bomb ?"

I suppose the real culprits are the scriptwriters but the dull as dishwater delivery doesn't help !

The guys working at the pipeline in Batman Begins who feel the need to frantically yell reminders of the plot at us every 10 seconds or so towards the end.
It's annoying that Nolan/Goyer decided that they needed to do this in the first place, but their completely OTT delivery is a real sore point in a great movie.

The TDKR thing was especially bad because it totally destroys the tension of the scene.

The contrast between the camp delivery of "A WHaAAaAaA!??!" to the shouty machismo of the "BITE RADIUS CRAP" dialogue a few seconds later always cracks me up.

Has just reminded me of a moment in Sahara. There's a guy/guard on a train travelling through the desert who doesn't have any lines, but has to eat a monkey nut and throw away the shell. And he does it in such a ridiculous, over the top way, it drives me insane every time I see it (which will make it two times).

Ghostbusters!

Towards the end of the film when the 'Busters are approaching "Spook Central" there's a really annoying guy with red floppy hair in the crowd who's mugging it up atrociously and starts clapping his hands like a simpleton when the Ectomobile comes into view. But it doesn't end there as he proceeds to yell "Ghostbusters! Alright! Alright" as Venkman walks toward the crowd.

I want to destroy him.

I'm sure there was also a scene in Empire where two rebel troopers were talking to each other in the Hoth hanger - one quite camp with hand on hip, badly delivering the few words of dialogue he had.

Oh dear lord yes, great call. I haven't seen Ghostbusters for years, but I can picture that exact guy and that exact moment. I know just what you mean!

I never understand how these moments get left in. The Nolan one that annoyed me, for instance, there's absolutely no reason why that couldn't have been edited out - it's about one second long. And I can't believe they've been missed in the editing suite?!?!

I sat through it yet again a few days ago. Great entertainment from start to finish. There's a thread in Favourite Films that rightfully makes a comparison to Indiana Jones. Link
