Movies: The Room (2003) - Cult Film of the Week

What do you call the worst drama film ever made?

The best comedy of all time.


The Room (2003) centers around a group of friends - the couple of Johnny and Lisa, best friend Mark, "adopted" child Denny and mother Claudette, as they deal with jobs, faltering romance and the future. 

At least that was the intended plot, except the film - written, directed, produced, financed and starring Tommy Wiseau (Johnny), fails to provide the audience with anything other then a comedy due to its broken narratives, terrible lines, amateur film-making, 
inconsistent casting and just the overall inability to take this film seriously. 

The actual serious trailer for the movie. 

However, this horrendous quality has led this movie to garner cult support, its corny and repetitive lines being uttered on university campuses worldwide, with sellout film showings, fan clubs and play reenactments popping up everywhere. There's even a video game The Room: The Game.    

Yes. It's that bad.

If ever have the chance, go to a screening of The Room. It is something that everyone should experience at least once in their life, just don't sit in front of the screen and make sure to bring a lot of plastic cutlery. 

SPOONS!


Have you ever seen The Room? How about at a screening?
