Atom User Reviews for The Room
The greatest worst film ever made. My buddy Ameesh loves this film but won't admit it.
better than all oscar films this oscar
You can laugh at lines like: Hey, everybody, let's go inside and eat some cake; Leave your stupid comments in your pocket!; Man, I just can't figure women out. Sometimes they're just too smart. Sometimes they're flat out stupid. Other times they're just evil. In Wiseau's worldview, if The Room were a woman, she wouldn't be evil or too smart. That leaves flat-out stupid. [12 Feb 2012, p.B2]
That’s the trick to making a cult film. It can’t just be bad, it has to be memorably so, and The Room is.
The Room marks the writing-directing-acting debut of Tommy Wiseau, who's not just one of the most unusual looking and sounding (with an unidentifiable Eastern European accent) leading men ever to grace the screen, but a narcissist nonpareil whose movie makes Vincent Gallo's The Brown Bunny seem the apotheosis of cinematic self-restraint.
