    Neil Patrick Harris in Harold & Kumar is a close second.

    Christopher Walken's was as good, probably better.

    I like it more subtle... like Chuck Yeager in "The Right Stuff" or Pappy Boyington appearing as a general in the old "Black Sheep Squadron" show. Little appearances that you wouldn't catch normally.

    That said, seeing Barker beat the shit out of Gilmore and throw in the "bitch" makes me cackle every time. And NPH in "Harold and Kumar"? Gave the dude a whole new career. Hard to beat that.

    "Back to the Beach."
    Frankie, now an insurance salesman in Ohio, and Annette visit their daughter in Malibu. Frankie and Annette have a big fight. Frankie goes to the bar to drown his sorrows.
    Drunk and slobbering, he keeps wailing away to the (unseen) bartender.
    "Another double, little buddy ... another double, little buddy."
    "Quit calling me 'little buddy,' " says the bartender as the camera pans back to reveal Bob Denver as Gilligan, complete with white sailor had and red shirt.

    "Coming to America:" Akeem, while on his date with Lisa, gives a bag of cash to two bums sleeping on the street. The bums turn out to be Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy as the Duke brothers from "Trading Places."

    Clint Howard in any Ron Howard movie. I always look for him.

    And the real Jim Lovell shaking the character Jim Lovel's hand as he steps on the aircraft carrier at the end of Apollo 13 is pretty neat.

    And Kevin Costner's wrist in "The Big Chill."

    This was mentioned in one of the other threads, but Gene Hackman's cameo as the blind hermit in Young Frankenstein was priceless.

    This might be considered a small part rather than a cameo, but I liked Stan Lee's appearance in Mallrats. Certainly better than most of his other cameos.
