The Room


the-room

Ay yi yi. Have you seen Tommy Wiseau's movie The Room?

If you like cult classics, painful dialogue, bad plot lines, terrible acting, atrocious set design, cheeeeeeesetastic love scenes, and one of the ugliest leading men to ever be featured, this is the movie for you. It is so bad that it is laughable. I guess there is some debate as to whether the director/leading man INTENDED for the movie to be awful or not. It is rather painful to watch -- one of those movies where you are laughing when you aren't supposed to be, and you want to turn it off but you just CAN'T.

I'm so bad at watching movies...I'm guessing if I don't watch this one I won't be missing too much. Or maybe this is the one I really shouldn't miss! ;)

He looks like the scary girl in "The Ring" or that other scary girl from "The Grudge". Haven't seen the film but I ma imagine from the review you gave it is probably quite popular with the ironic hipster crowd. - G
Today's captcha: gonshi . Don't know why that is funny, maybe because it sounds like gonch.

Kitty Stampede said...

I've heard about this movie before - it's supposed to be like, the worst movie ever. I'd like to see it though, because I'm always up for movies that are so bad they're actually enjoyable.

Tip: If you've never seen a movie called "Plato's Run", head to the video store pretty much immediately. Two words: Gary Busey.

hes painful to look at.

Char said...

i've heard that - that it was treated like "rocky horror" where crowds would talk back to it.

Missy said...

This sounds like a movie that I would choose to see...

I'm just going to take your word for it. I always get sucked into bad movies and I keep watching thinking, it has to have a point. Right? Then...there never is a point and it never gets better.

Ugh!

Christina In Wonderland said...

Makes me think of the donkey scene in Clerks II. "It's so disgusting but I can't look away."

That happens. Things are just so awful that you kind of have to see if it gets worse or better.

That is the best un-sell of a movie I've ever read!

I like Vincent Gallo movies, so there is not doubt in my mind that I would enjoy this. Netflixing...

WendyB said...

The poster alone is terrifying.

Kristin said...

Female trouble? Ah ha ha

tim and eric FTW!

Holy mother of God, I can't believe you just posted this. My boyfriend and his gang are all obsessed with this movie, quote it often and post clips on each other's facebook walls. So this director guy was actually in our city at a showing of this godawful movie and the crew went TO MEET HIM and TOOK PHOTOS WITH HIM. I've never seen anything so nerdy in all of my stupid life.

vint junky said...

Hmmmm...you know you've made want to see it.
Curiousity, cat and all that jizz!

Kathryn said...

Never heard of it..still wishing I hadn't - dude looks creepy. Sort of cross between Christopher Walken with a stroke with a bit 'o caveman quality with a touch of Marilyn Manson.

Jennifer DeDonato said...

This movie is SO bad! My friend got it for me as a joke gift. When you buy it the director signs the copies.It's such a bad movie it's funny.

this just showed up on the widgets and I had to go... my little brother in college is OBSESSED with this movie. there's a theatre here in Portland that plays this movie every night (So Portland, I know) and it has a huge cult following because it's so ridiculous. My Brother and all his friends went the night that he was there making an appearance and took all these pictures with him, so funny. he looks like a nut job. i still need to see the movie! my brother convinced me of its oddness and i'm intrigued...
