The Room



I've been hearing a lot of buzz about this movie, it's been regarded as the worst movie ever made. After reading the wikipedia entry I can't wait to see it. I was laughing my ass off just reading about it. Supposedly the director and star Wiseau spent 7 million dollars making it, my question is who the fuck gave this guy 7 million dollars. Here are some of the funny parts from the wikipedia page.

Plot holes.

In an early scene, halfway through a conversation about planning a birthday party for Johnny, Claudette off-handedly tells Lisa: "I got the results of the test back. I definitely have breast cancer." The issue is never revisited during the rest of the film.

Johnny claims that he doesn't drink alcohol early in the film, shortly before Lisa convinces him to get drunk on what appears to be a mixture of scotch and vodka (eventually labeled by fans as "scotchka")

The Premiere.

Leading up to the release of The Room, Wiseau began a promotional blitz in print and television, comparing The Room to works by Tennessee Williams though the playwright's name is repeatedly misspelled as "Tennesee". The Room premiered at a Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles on June 27, 2003, where Wiseau had rented limos and red carpet for the occasion. According to cast members, people in the theater began laughing at the film within the first ten minutes, and by the end, some of the crowd were "rolling around" and "crying with laughter".The film made less than $2,000 during its initial theatrical run.

- 2000 bucks hahahaha

IFC.com described Wiseau's speaking voice in the film as "Borat trying to do an impression of Christopher Walken playing a mental patient."

Wiseau attends many of the midnight screenings, selling t-shirts, DVDs, and film soundtracks to fans.

Interview on the DVD

The DVD features an interview with Wiseau, who is asked questions by an off-screen Greg Sestero. Wiseau sits directly in front of a fireplace, with a mantel cluttered by a candelabra, a football, a basketball, red roses, and a clock radio;[23] next to him sits a large framed theatrical poster for the film. His dialogue throughout the interview, like in the film, is heavily dubbed.
