    This is a documentary about what happens to you when you appear in "Troll 2."
  2. 75
    Doesn't make the case that watching truly bad movies is worthwhile. But it does make you realize that nobody gets up in the morning, showers, breakfasts, dresses and goes to work thinking they're making the worst film in history, either.
  3. The surprisingly rich documentary Best Worst Movie views the phenomenon from a unique perspective.
  4. In its more amusing and accepting moments, Best Worst Movie captures the geek-joy fizz when fame morphs into notoriety, and artlessness becomes its own art.
  5. Reviewed by: John Anderson

    Strangely moving, insightful and entertaining documentary.
  6. There's no denying that it is often outrageous fun, and the news that Fragasso and Drudi are working on a script for "Troll 2: Part 2" is but the icing on a very nasty cake.
  7. This fawning appreciation wears thin, despite the good-natured clowning of Alabama dentist/would-be actor George Hardy, who's like a poor man's Bruce Campbell (our apologies to Bruce Campbell).

    Best Worst Movie covers the phenomena of the bad movie and, in this case, what imdb calls the "worst" movie ever made Troll 2. Like TommyBest Worst Movie covers the phenomena of the bad movie and, in this case, what imdb calls the "worst" movie ever made Troll 2. Like Tommy Wiseau's The Room or Ed Wood movies Troll 2 took off and became a cult hit phenomena amongst bad movie and horror movie fans. The star of this documentary was George Hardy, who nowadays works as a dentist after his career in acting never took off. But he is in generally in good spirits today. The only time he lost his patience is when signing autographs at the Horror Movie conventions. He wanted to bolt outta there! Troll 2 was so bad that one of the stars Connie Young (credited in the movie as Connie McFarlane) does not put this movie on her resume because she knows if she does and a producer watches the movie she will not get the role. She does not participate in anything Troll 2 related and wants nothing to do with it. You can't help but feel disgusted and also feel sorry for Robert Ornsby, another Troll 2 star who never really did anything with his life. Never got married. Didn't bother to go to LA or New York to try to make it as a star. Just stayed in Utah and watched Family Guy and let his life fritter away. Best Worst Movie also contains a ton of special features which will keep you entertained for hours. Even if you are not a horror movie fan, check it out. Very entertaining documentary. Expand

    I just find it ironic that this is currently the Worst Best Movie. Other than that, I have nothing to add to this review, so instead I thinkI just find it ironic that this is currently the Worst Best Movie. Other than that, I have nothing to add to this review, so instead I think I'll ruminate on the fact that it's rather astonishing how anyone would even bother to focus on a film such as Troll (or any of its sequels), and somehow think that anyone would find it even remotely interesting. But to each his own, I guess. Expand

    The mildly entertaining "Best Worst Film" is kind of a companion, or commentary for Troll 2. If you haven't seen Troll 2, you're not missingThe mildly entertaining "Best Worst Film" is kind of a companion, or commentary for Troll 2. If you haven't seen Troll 2, you're not missing much.
