Critic Reviews for Best Worst Movie
Troll 2 has become a midnight favorite, and Stephenson looks at the phenomenon while catching up with his profoundly untalented costars and the grouchy Italian director.
A documentary so enthusiastic, good-natured and sweet about such an abject disaster that it almost makes Troll 2 worthwhile.
A fantastic deconstruction of how a bad film actually earn its "cult fave" status.
Audience Reviews for Best Worst Movie
A surprising and bittersweet doc that will certainly appeal more to all those out there who share the same strange fascination for this unexpected cult phenomenon (me included), even if it simplifies too easily the reason of its shocking success into simple matters of being entertaining.
The only thing wrong with this documentary is the time. Too short for so many characters, actors, scenes and history that eventually doesn't appear. Very funny, exciting, moving... a great event for a great terrible movie.
Best Worst Movie is a documentary about the cult that's grown around Troll 2 and where the actors are now. George Hardy drives this movie, an affable dentist from Alabama who loves the weird new fandom he finds himself the centre of. At times it's a little bit sad when you see what's become of Margo Prey or that Robert Ormsby seems disappointed with his life. If Hardy is the hero, then Claudio Fragasso, the director of Troll 2 is the villain, a humourless pompous pseudo-arteeste who doesn't understand what good movie-making is, doesn't understand America, can't take criticism and doesn't want you to enjoy his movie wrong. As a whole, it makes you want to see Troll 2, which is kinda cool, I guess, I'd have liked to see more of Michael Stephenson, the grown up child actor who's behind the camera.
