Johnny is a successful banker with great respect for and dedication to the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa. The happy-go-lucky guy sees his world fall apart when his friends begin to betray him one-by-one.
Tommy Wiseau as Johnny a romantic at heart with a heartless fiancé who's shagging his best friend in the quintessential so bad it's bad film. Golden Gate Bridge. Swashbuckling music. The way Tommy says "Hi babe." Curious Denny. Pillow fight. Slow dancing. Rose petals and boobs. The way Tommy wiggles his ass while he is having simulated sex. Mommy dearest. Lisa's pouty face. Of course the "other man" has a badass beard. Mark's teeth. Is it hot in here? More ladies need to use that line. Trust me it will work. Oh hell yes! This seduction scene music sounds like a cross between Sade and TLC. Sexy florist. How long is free months? Lisa kinda looks like a Ninja Turtle…
I finally watched this and I now think that no words of mine can do it justice and only the words from the film itself can do that. For those who have watched the film it would be a trip down your cherished memory lane and for those who haven't the following would be reasons why it is criminal not to see this at least once in your lifetime. So here it goes.
Mark: How was work today?
Johnny: Oh, pretty good. We got a new client and the bank will make a lot of money.
Mark: What client?
Johnny: I cannot tell you; it's confidential.
Mark: Aw, come on. Why not?
Johnny: No, I can't. Anyway, how is…
"The Room" masterfully written, directed, produced, and starring Tommy Wiseau tells the Shakespearean tragedy of Johnny, a banker who is betrayed by the "love of his life", Lisa. Fueled by powerful performances and flawless directing, "The Room" is a masterpiece in filmmaking that will definetely leave it's audience speechless.
Wiseau's face is a Picasso.
The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.
It goes from appallingly bad to hilariously bad to post modernist Nirvana.
I have to rate it five stars for even that cannot make sense.
Tonight I discovered the best way to watch THE ROOM: With someone who has not only never seen it before, but has no idea what it is. Their reactions to the madness, particularly in the early scenes, were absolutely priceless.
Oh hai Letterboxd.
Did the San Francisco Tourism Bureau finance the opening credit sequence? Why is a grown couple hanging out with a 14-year-old rando? Are they done having sex yet? Why is there a decorative shower in their bedroom? Do the gods know there’s a mortal named Mark with hair that luscious? Why is he surprised Lisa’s coming onto him when she called him “baby” over the phone earlier? Was the camera supposed to go out of focus? Wait, why are they kissing now? What happened between kissing her and Mark telling her he wasn't going to do it? Are they seriously going to have sex on a hard-ass, uncarpeted, cramped spiral staircase? Are they done having sex yet? Wait, have they…
i love showing this movie to people who have no idea what they're in for lol
The pinnacle of so-bad-it's-good.
13 years later, The Room continues to mystify audiences everywhere. GGI'ed rooftops, an abundance of incredibly awkward sex scenes and the enigmatic oddball that is Tommy Wiseau make this a surprisingly watchable piece of cinematic schlock.
Watched this with kids in my dorm ENTERTAINMENT at its finest
I was hoping this was the film version of The Room by Hubert Selby Junior, but it's not. Then I realised that even if it were I would lose my temper for a long time because all films based on Hubert Selby books are so utterly distanced from the original, so twee and boring and hopeless as to make me very unhappy, and the book delirious with contempt (Hubert Selby himself is so blasted out by his own vision and so grateful to film directors he never seems able to detect the travesty, but I can), and then I have to say a lot about that to anyone who will listen and no one ever does listen because they don't,…
Best worst movie ever
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
What is The Room? Let me tell you.
First off, the acting is mediocre at best. Greg was good, Johnny and Denny were okay, and Claudette and Lisa were bad. The directing is just okay.
BUT... The music is great. This movie is perfectly edited. The story is interesting. Sure it's not perfect, but it's very enjoyable and I highly recommend this movie to everyone.
Also, this movie seems similar, but is the complete opposite of The Shape of Things, a movie I watched about a month ago.
with amy, dan, sean, max, and mary.
This shoulda been launched into space along with Chuck Berry and the reel of people speaking in different languages in order to showcase the sheer breadth of the human condition.
I was semi-lucky enough to get into a screening of Tommy Wiseau's The Room with Wiseau, himself, in attendance. I say semi-lucky because this was my first time watching The Room after years of waiting for the perfect moment to screen it. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it, because I did, I just wished that the audience was a bit quitter during some parts. Out of the "film" 's 100 minute run-time I probably heard about 30 minutes of actual dialogue and then pieced together everything else from what I remembered from the Nostalgia Critic's hilarious review. It's hard to get in on the joke, as obvious as it is, when you have no idea what's being said. For…
