See It! The Room

In the tradition of Kickboxing Academy, Superfuzz, and Dreaming Of Society comes another great horrible movie. The Room is so bad that it's good. The characters are inconsistent, the acting is bush league, and the creator of this mess, Tommy Wiseau, is a untalented genius. This type of film only works if the writer/star/director is sincere, because if done on purpose it becomes one of those douche bag spoof films. This film has it all, huge plot holes, story lines that go nowhere, and every character has a bipolar disorder. Every scene with Wiseau is comedy gold. His creepy look,dubbed accent, and acting will have you laughing out loud. Wiseau is so inept as a filmmaker that this piece of crap somehow cost 6 million dollars, and believe me it doesn't show in any way. This film has had a huge cult following with Rocky Horror results. If The Room shows at a midnight showing near you, then do yourself a favor and see it. The DVD has a lot of funny extras and be sure to see it with a friend.


  1. Tommy Wiseau says that he was born and raised in New Orleans, but he has that weird Romanian type accent. I haven't seen the whole thing, but if it's on the same level with Dreaming of Society, I have to give it a watch. It is also rumored that he used both video and film cameras side by side because he couldn't figure out which looked better. The thought of this guy being able to raise $6 million makes me want to puke.

  2. Yea that dude is as Euro as it gets. They have a behind the scenes on the DVD and it shows the HD cam next to the 35mm camera. I have no idea which cam he lit for,but the final product sucks. He also bought them instead of renting, and said he didn't know the difference between the two type of cameras. He is also going to write a book and shoot a doc about the differences between the two cam, it must be for 4th graders.

  3. They have been showing this movie a lot at the Alamo Drafthouse, I just haven't had the chance to see it yet. Don't forget to include Troll 2 on that list of horribly great movies.
