If you have never watched the beautiful mess of a film that is The Room you are seriously missing out!
Here is a quick spoiler free summary of the film. Johnny is engaged to Lisa, who has grown bored of their relationship and starts cheating on him with his best friend Mark.
This might sound like some cheesy rom-com but trust me, this film is comedic gold. However, that was not its intention.
In fact, everything about this movie from the production, the writing and the acting is so terrible that it is hysterical.
It’s clear that the film was supposed to be a dramatic and intense story about love, betrayal and scandal but boy did that fail.
The Room wasn’t a big hit when it first came out back in 2003 but has since grown a cult following. Greg Sestero, the actor who played Mark and friend to the director, writer and executive producer Tommy Wiseau wrote a book titled The Disaster Artist about his friendship with Wiseau and the madness that was the filming of The Room.
Said book is now a movie.
The Disaster Artist stars Dave and James Franco as Greg and Tommy respectively. Just like the book of the same name, the film follows the chaos that is The Room and its creation.
At the time of writing I am currently reading the book myself, and if this film is half as entertaining as the book or even a fourth of The Room then we are in for a treat.
Here is the real question, what does Tommy think about the movie?
I 99.9% approve. No, football, the way he throw the football, I did not like that… I think you [James Franco] did a good job and I think I did a good job too. I have to be self-centered right now… No, you guys did [a] good job. They have the very good makeup artist, right? They did excellent job. So, I don’t have to complain about anything, actually.
I think he likes it.
At the time of writing The Disaster Artist is due to be released in US cinemas on the first of December but there is no confirmed UK release date.
