"I want more sand in the desert!"

 

- Vittorio De Sica directing in After the Fox

 

This one's great, a bad movie within a bad movie (which oddly enough is pretty entertaining).

 

Another one that fits these parameters is "Best Worst Movie", a documentary of how they made Troll 2.  Troll 2's ratings ended up in the toilet, but the documentary got a fairly high rating and much higher popularity on its own.
