* TheyJustDidntCare: A revealing moment in ''Best Worst Movie'' has George Hardy re-enacting the fire extinguisher scene with Claudio Fragasso, only to ask how Michael would've known about the extinguisher and where it was located. Fragasso adamantly tells him it's not important. If he reacted that way two decades after the film was made, you can only imagine how much Fragasso said something like that during the actual filming.

* SequelDisplacement: The original ''Film/{{Troll}}'' was a real Hollywood prodiction, but due to being utterly SoOkayItsAverage, it would be completely forgotten today if not for the fact that it had a NoBudget DolledUpInstallment CultClassic of a sequel. This is debateable, however, since its [[DuelingMovies counterpart]] ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}'' with Fonducaro's future ''Film/{{Willow}}'' co-star Warwick Davis is remembered as well.

* NarmCharm: People have been known to love Troll 2 for its Narmtastic dialogue and plotting.

** A film that mentions trolls in the title but doesn't actually have any fits the modern definition of {{Troll}} perfectly.

* WatchItForTheMeme: The film's cult largely happened because of MemeticMutation. People were naturally curious to watch the whole film to see what exactly the context was for things like "they're eating her!".

* [[{{Memes/Film}} Memetic Mutation]][=/=][[{{Narm/Film}} Narm]]: Oh dear God, it's ''everywhere''!
-->'''Arnold''': They're eating her! And then they're going to eat me! [[BigOMG OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDD!]]
-->'''Michael''': You can't piss on [[SacredHospitality hospitality]]! I WON'T ALLOW IT! -- ''after Joshua urinates over the food on the dinner table.''
-->'''Joshua''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext They were trying to feed me ice cream so they could eat me later.]]
-->'''Joshua''': Nilbog! It's goblin spelled backwards!
** A double example can be found during the sermon at the Church. It's funny enough hearing the Preacher hammily ranting about "smelly bladders", but look carefully at the General Store Owner when hemorrhoids are mentioned. He puts his hands between his legs and squeezes them together.
** Let's be honest; most of Arnold's dialogue in general.
** Holly's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQRFh2Bfhps dance scene]] is one of the most flat-out awkward attempts at dancing ever put to film.

** Robert Ormsby as Grandpa Seth gives the film's only performance that isn't hammy, stilted, or hammy ''and'' stilted.

* FountainOfMemes: There are ''dozens'', if not hundreds, of bizarre, quotable lines in the film, not just the ones everybody knows.



** ''Best Worst Movie'' shows that "You can't piss on hospitality! I won't let you!" was George Hardy's signature line during his screening tour.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: ''Best Worst Movie'' reveals the director Claudio Fragasso, screenwriter Rossella Drudi and actress Margo Prey (who played the mom) all continue to take the film seriously. Fragasso bristles at the ironic cult following the film has achieved, while Prey compares the film to ''Film/{{Casablanca}}''.
