Atom User Reviews for The Room
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.
