I'd say my favorite is the first 10 minutes of Austin Powers in goldmember, you have Tom Cruise, Gweneth Paltrow, Danny Devito, Kevin Spacy, Steven Spielberg, Quincy Jones, Britney Spears. After that, the movie goes to hell.
Also the Gus Van Sant cameo in Jay and silent bob strike back "damnit ben, can't you see I'm busy" (he's counting money)
the news off in Anchorman
Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of...

Alfred Hitchcock was the master of the cameo (and many other things).
Luckily, right at that moment, an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof.

He was quickly joined by a dwarf dressed as a nun.

The one which comes to mind is at the very end of Out of Sight.

Kinda like Charlton Heston's cameo role in Wayne's World 2.

It's amusing to see Francis Ford Coppola in Apocalypse Now.

And the Gus Van Sant cameo in Jay And Silent Bob is pretty damn funny. Posted Image

The very funniest cameo I recall is with Oliver Stone in "Dave". He's on the Larry King show claiming there's a conspiracy to replace the real president with a look-a-like.

Steven Spielberg as the frazzled county clerk in The Blues Brothers? Or George Lucas taking his family around Wally World in Beverly Hills Cop (3, I think?)

Bruno Ganz as the angel Damiel (from Wings of Desire) in the Icelandic film Children of Nature. Didn't see that one coming.

Sly Stallone as he bumps into John Travolta on the street in Staying Alive. When I saw that in the theater as a kid, the audience blew up.

Will Ferrell playing Chaz Reingold in 'Wedding Crashers.'

For me it's Stan Lee in Spiderman 1 & 2. If I recall he also appeared in Fantastic Four as well.

I loved Sean Connery as King Richard at the end of Robin HoodPosted Imagerince of Thieves.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

For some reason, all I can think of is really random stuff...

Alanis Morisette as God in Dogma. I'm not a big fan of hers, but she did kind of a cute job with the role. And she obliterated Ben Affleck. Bonus points there.

Reggie Jackson as a mind controlled drone trying to assassinate the Queen of England in Naked Gun.

Peter Jackson as a pirate in Return of the King. Didn't seem like much of a stretch.

Brett Favre as himself in There's Something About Mary. I didn't expect him to actually show up on camera.

Mel Gibson has done a few...

... as a celebrity anger management patient in Paparazzi

...as a body-pierced rock fan in Father's Day

...his hand in The Passion of the Christ
