Hyperbole is just exaggeration (an overstatement), so any example of exaggeration in a film would be an example of hyperbole.


"As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again"(Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind).(1)

"Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain"(Wizard of Oz in The Wizard of Oz).(2)
