Documentary that explores the cult status surrounding the 1990 film Troll 2. Very well made, and of particular interest to anyone who likes movies about movies, cult films, low budget films, or Troll 2. I will say that the documentary's attempts to rectify the embarrassment surrounding the film fails-- the people involved seem a little more crazy, honestly. Still this movie is well made and informative. By the way, there is no Troll 1. There is a movie titled Troll, but there is no affiliation whatsoever. I'm sure viewers will be surprised to learn just how many people worship Troll 2, which honestly is falsely labeled as the "worst film ever." Yes, it's low budget and doesn't consistently make all that much sense, but why would that be enough to say it's the worst? Personal opinion, of course, but I believe there are myriad worse films. Troll 2 is ridiculous, but astoundingly entertaining

This movie is funny, sad, and fascinating and even a little touching.

So, let me get this right - The 1989 garbage-movie called Troll 2 was such a putrid piece of trash that (get this) 20 years later (out of some weird compulsion, or whatever) another garbage-movie was made called Best Worst Movie and this piece of rubbish was made specifically to tell us all just how really terrible Troll 2 was...... Duh. Yeah. Yeah. I get the message. OK!!?? Sheesh! Like, give me a break, already!

And, with that said, I ask you - Why-oh-why do so many fans of bad movies seem to endlessly wallow and persistently marvel at such movie-ineptitude as trash like Troll 2, anyways? Eh? Why?

And if that wasn't inexplicably stupid enough - When it came to Best Worst Movie, as a movie, in and of itself - I'm tellin' ya - If one more, just one more, person/actor/whoever in this dismal excuse for a movie raved just one more time about what a terrific/wonderful/swell guy that actor/dentist George Hardy was (like, even Hardy's ex-wife got into the act. sheesh!) I think that I surely would've puked my guts out right there on the spot. I really would've.

It seemed to me that far too much of Best Worst Movie's running time was utterly wasted away in an inane attempt to firmly establish Hardy as the best "gosh-darn" guy (next to Jesus Christ, of course) ever to walk on the face of this here planet Earth. Golly-Gee.

All of this senseless and annoying praise and gushing over Hardy really put me off, big time. Like, was this all really necessary? In my opinion, all of this nonsense only succeeded in making Hardy (in my eyes) out to be an even bigger arse than he probably was.

And, unfortunately, because Hardy was such an integral part of Best Worst Movie's production I found it near impossible to even slightly enjoy this truly stupid movie for what it was (or what it wasn't) worth.... So, there.

This is a fascinating, funny, and sometimes poignantly sad documentary about how a very bad Z-grade sci-fi movie found a new lease on life as a cult favorite, widely revered for its awfulness.
