[The] doc offers fittingly low-tech amusement throughout --which is a hell of a lot more than can be said about the tediously incomprehensible movie it champions.
This is a sweet film about an unusual but notable part of "Hollywood," for a group of people who have, for the most part, barely been to Los Angeles.
| Original Score: 8/10
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.
Whether or not you believe Troll 2 is the single worst film ever made... any fan of so-bad-it's-good cinema will appreciate this loving tribute
All about the shooting and rise to cult status of Troll 2, deemed the Best Worst Movie of all time, this doc is entertaining whether you're a Troll 2-ite or not.
| Original Score: 4/5
What about old-school cult favorite "Manos: The Hands of Fate" ... Does Armond White have to step in with a Fresh review to get the ball rolling?
| Original Score: 6/10
Cheap laughs are still laughs, right?
| Original Score: 3/5
A very charming and touching documentary...
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...
| Original Score: B
A documentary so enthusiastic, good-natured and sweet about such an abject disaster that it almost makes Troll 2 worthwhile.
Fortunately, Best Worst Movie is not a revisionist attempt to rehabilitate Troll 2's dubious reputation. Instead, director Michael Stephenson, examines that 1990 film's unexpected rebirth as a midnight movie camp sensation.
Delivers a well-rounded look at a remarkable turn of events without ever overdramatizing the actors' despair or over glamorizing their fame.
I've been strong-arming acquaintances about this deliriously entertaining documentary ever since I saw it at South by Southwest last year.
A tribute to human endurance: most of the people we spend time with ended up somewhere far different than they wanted to, but most of them are pretty content, and none of them have given up.
| Original Score: 7/10
...a heart-on-its-sleeve documentary that is fun to watch but not something that will stay with me. It is more a snack than a meal, but it is kinda tasty.
| Original Score: B-
It's not often that a behind-the-scenes documentary is more entertaining than the movie itself but Best Worst Movie is not your typical Hollywood tale. There's nothing typical about Troll 2.
| Original Score: 3/4
An amusing celebration of a very special type of garbage.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
However, if you are a fan of trashy cinema and have always wondered what kind of people think up and participate in movies like "Troll 2," now you have your answer.
This curiously touching doc has a bittersweet ending.
a laugh out loud funny documentary steeped in nostalgia and good cheer with some sly social commentary worked in.
| Original Score: B+
