"The Room" - One of those movies you just need to see.

And it's not good. It's not even bad. It's downright fucking terrible. But the same reasons it's downright fucking terrible are the same reasons it's downright fucking awesome. It makes for a great drinking game, though (I'll post the rules we used if you'd like).



Just thought I'd share this godawful film with all of you.

A bit of trivia, too...
  • The "director", actor, writer, editor, whatever else he is, Tommy Wiseau, supposedly funded this entire movie by "importing leather jackets from Korea."
  • Wiseau was supposedly 34 or 35 years old (somewhere around there) at time of filming.
  • Wiseau declared it to be a "black comedy" AFTER he saw all the negative reviews.

No. It's about a banker (Johnny) whose wife (Lisa) falls in love with Johnny's best friend (Mark). Lisa's mother (forget her name) encourages Lisa to stay with Johnny just for the sake of money. Tragedy ensues. WTFness happens. Hilarity ensues. You end up drunk.

Wiseau said in the Q&A section of the DVD, "I called it 'The Room' because it's a safe place for viewers to be" or something weird like that. The guy's an oddball, for sure.

$6,000,000 budget on this movie. Not even kidding.

No. See above and/or watch the trailer.

In all reality, the title of the movie has nothing to do with the movie itself.

Just watch it. Then get a group of your friends together and play a drinking game.

Any variety of, "Oh haiii!" Take a drink.
Any variety of, "Johnny's such a great guy." Take a drink.
Any variety of, "Johnny and Mark are best friends." Drink.
Any variety of, "Lisa is so pretty." Drink.
"Don't worry about it." Drink.
Front door opens. Drink.
Drink for full 18 seconds of florist shop scene.
Toss a football (carefully) around the room during football tossing scenes. Whoever drops it or is the last person with it has to drink the rest of their drink.
Johnny's awkward laugh. Drink.

Following these rules, you'll end up completely annihilated by the end of the movie.

I feel like I heard about this movie before. Someone on reddit maybe said it was so bad you just have to watch it.

There are only two problems with that suggestion:

1) I don't drink alcohol.
2) I don't have any friends.

They apparently did this for a few years. A more... censored... version.
