So bad it's goooood.
The Room is a joyfully maligned schlock classic about a warped love triangle and featuring Hollywood hopeful, Tommy Wiseau as writer, director and lead character of the film. Tommy stars as Johnny – a successful banker who lives happily in San Francisco with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, for no apparent reason, she decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. The story takes off from there.
The Room was recently elevated to even more mega cult status by James Franco’s Oscar nominated film, “The Disaster Artist” – based on actor Greg Sestero’s memories of making the original movie, and fondly referred to as the greatest bad movie ever made.
The final word goes to Rotten Tomatoes: “A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau's misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again.”
