Trivia

A portrait visible in Manzini's shop is the painting from Troll (1986). It can be seen in the scene after the Garbage Pail Kids have had their weenie roast and are back at the shop recovering. See more »

Goofs

As it is well known that the puppetry and animatronics were not properly finished for the film, the filmmakers had to work with what they had, as a result the Garbage Pail Kid Ali Gator can be seen several times with his mouth open and immobile in wide shots. See more »

Quotes

Captain Manzini: Did you get the blood of a toad and the eye of a newt?
Dodger: Nope. The pet shop's out of unicorns, too.
Captain Manzini: No wonder there's no magic in the world today. You can't get the ingredients.

You can't possibly get any worse than this
24 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll admit, I couldn't finish this atrocity. I watched 10 minutes worth of clips and I wouldn't usually write a review of a movie I haven't seen 90% of, but the 10 minutes was enough to convince me that you will never find a worse movie. And I saw Troll 2. The humor is crude, there isn't anything funny about the things those kids do. The acting is so bad, even the laughs sound fake. But it wasn't any of that that really made me cringe, although they added to the cringe factor a lot, it was the puppetry and the kids in general. Oh. My. Goodness. They are so creepy! And on top of being creepy, they're gross? No thank you!! Bottom of the heap. As someone who usually likes to give even bad movies a shot, the fact that I couldn't sit through the clips is saying something. I'm also very generous in my reviews (I gave Troll 2 a 5/10 for goodness sake!) but there is no comparison, this movie is by far the worst thing in film history. This should be recalled and the actors should keep this off their resumes.
