Best Worst Movie Reviews

Behind every unique subculture is a great story, but not each of these stories is deserving of its own feature length documentary.

Lessons of Darkness

A warm, jovial and decidedly uncritical look at both [Troll 2] and its rabid fans.

Stephenson's self-exemption from his film's scrutiny feels craven, especially when he visits screen-mother Margo Prey to ogle her infirm mother and kitten-themed décor.

You might assume "Troll 2" aficionados are sarcasm-drenched hipsters, but "Best Worst Movie" argues that their appreciation is far less convoluted.

Delivers a well-rounded look at a remarkable turn of events without ever overdramatizing the actors' despair or over glamorizing their fame.

This curiously touching doc has a bittersweet ending.

The odds of making a film like Troll 2 are fairly small, of having people quite like that film even smaller, and of having it bring people together just enough to matter.

Stephenson acknowledges that, from the cast's perspective at least, this is not a story about delayed success but about disappointment and dashed hopes.

'Best Worst Movie' is as much about our reasons for loving movies as 'Cinema Paradiso' was.

Of course people are always drawn together by movies, but do the movies at hand always have to be GOOD ones? (TROLL 2 tells us the answer is no.)

The debacle that was Troll 2 has given birth to Best Worst Movie, easily the most enjoyable documentary you'll see all year.

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?

A riotously funny look back at the behind-the-scenes madness of "Troll 2," and at the unlikely success it has had in recent years.

For a while, the dentist and the documentarian revel in the celebrity-ness of it all %u2014 a glow that fades as they delve a little deeper.

Best Worst Movie is the populist doc to beat this year, following in the footsteps of last year's Anvil! The Story of Anvil and summarily outdistancing that self-serving and unchallenging crowd-pleaser.

For anyone who's wanted to know how Troll 2 came to be and how the torment of its awfulness has hounded the cast and crew for two decades, "Best Worst Movie" is your documentary Xanadu.

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.

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.

Being the best of the worst can be its own reward, if you're willing to accept it.
