The summer of “Best Worst Movie”


After a big opening night screening at the 2009 Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival, the documentary “Best Worst Movie” has moved up to theatrical screenings. Theaters around the country are showing the film in limited engagements through the summer.

The tour kicked off in April in Austin. While it isn’t scheduled to return to Alabama, it will screen July 23 at Atlanta’s Landmark Midtown Art Cinema.

The documentary catches up with the cast and crew of “Troll 2,” a horror movie many consider to be the worst movie ever released. The star of both movies is Alexander City dentist George Hardy. Birmingham brothers Alan and Hugh Hunter served as the doc’s executive producers.

    I live in Alex City where Dr. Hardy lives and practices. He’s really quite a character himself, and he’s embraced this with such a great attitude.

    He came to the Birmingham screening and seemed to have a ball — along with the entire town.

    Have you seen either movie?
