Did You Know?


Shot simultaneously on 35 mm film and high-definition video. Tommy Wiseau was confused about the differences between the formats, so he used both cameras on the same mount. He also purchased the cameras, instead of renting them as film productions usually do.


Carolyn Minnott's surname is misspelled "Minnot" in the closing credits. (It is spelled correctly in the opening credits).

What is it?

Just a little something.

It's like sitting on an atom bomb that's about to explode

Rating: 10/10

I have now seen Mr. Tommy Wiseau's cinematic tour-de-force, 'The Room'
three times. With each viewing, 'The Room' becomes more complexly
entangled in and inseparable from my own life. I no longer know where
The Room ends and I begin.

It is, without question, the worst film ever made. But this comment is in no way meant to be discouraging.
Because while The Room is the worst movie ever made it is also the
greatest way to spend a blisteringly fast 100 minutes in the dark.
Simply put, 'The Room' will change your life.

It's not just the dreadful acting or the sub-normal screenplay or the
bewildering direction or the musical score so soaked in melodrama that
you will throw up on yourself or the lunatic-making cinematography; no,
there is something so magically wrong with this movie that it can only
be the product of divine intervention. If you took the greatest
filmmakers in history and gave them all the task of purposefully
creating a film as spectacularly horrible as this not one of them, with
all their knowledge and skill, could make anything that could even be
considered as a contender. Not one line or scene would rival any moment
in The Room.

The centerpiece of this filmic holocaust is Mr. Tommy Wiseau himself.
Without him, it would still be the worst movie ever made, but with him
it is the greatest worst movie ever made. Tommy has been described as a
Cajun, a Croatian cyborg, possibly from Belgium, clearly a product of
Denmark, or maybe even not from this world or dimension. All of these
things are true at any one moment. He is a tantalizing mystery stuffed
inside an enigma wrapped in bacon and smothered in cheese. You will
fall in love with this man even as you are repelled by him from the
first moment he steps onto screen with his long Louis the Fourteenth
style black locks and thick triangular shoulders packed into an oddly
fitting suit, and his metallic steroid destroyed skin. Tommy looks out
of place, out of time and out of this world. There has never been
anything else like him. Nor will there ever be.

The Room begins with 'Johnny' (Tommy Wiseau) and his incomprehensibly
evil fianc
