Storyline

This comedy sketch conglomeration (in the tradition of "_Kentucky Fried Movie, The (1977)_") is based on the idea that the viewer is watching cable TV and switching channels rather capriciously. Over a dozen separate sketches appear, but one particular sketch, "Battle for the Planet of Cheese" recurs in pieces again and again. "Battle for the Planet of Cheese" is a movie-within-a-movie which parodies "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)", "Planet of the Apes (1968)", "Aliens (1986)", "Star Trek (1976)" and many other science fiction films. Throughout the film the current "cable channel" appears on the screen every time a supposed channel change occurs. Written by Bill Cernansky

High Comedy on a Low Budget
20 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Created on a shoestring budget of around $7000, "The Best Movie Ever Made" was an epic undertaking by directors Bencich and LaMont, formerly known only for the public access television shows "TV or not TV" (a sketch comedy show shown only on Phoenix public access) and "Moviehouse" (an innovative movie review/sitcom show that they had hoped to market onto cable TV), TBMEM was a sketch comedy movie not unlike the Kentucky Fried Movie, staged with the plot device of the viewer flipping idly through channels between segments of the movie "Battle for the Planet of Cheese." Working from various locations in Phoenix and a rented sound-stage, Bencich, LaMont and their crew of unpaid college actors manage a sketch comedy extravaganza that, while sometimes woodenly acted, still manages to be hilarious. Sure, the ending is lame, and some of the sketches are groaningly bad, but it's a damn good effort.
