A movie made and advertised as an action or disaster movie with more comedy dialogue than serious, making people wonder if it's supposed to be funny or if the script writers failed. Movies like these are usually critically panned but box office successes.
Deep Impact is a good example of a hidden comedy. It seems like a serious film about the end of the world and the survival of humanity, though quite a bit of dialogue sounds more like it came from a Mike Judge film.
