Trivia

Kyle Vogt had to leave before all his scenes were shot because of a prior acting commitment. He told Tommy Wiseau about it months prior, and Wiseau assured him filming would be wrapped by that time. That explains why his character, Peter, is not at the party at the end. Peter's lines were given to Steven (Greg Ellery), a completely new character who unexpectedly shows up at Johnny's birthday party. One of Peter's last lines is "That's it; I'm done." See more »

The "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of chamber dramas
23 February 2004 | by (W. Hollywood, Calif.) – See all my reviews

Forget all the three-line raves this movie has received (which all seem to be suspiciously similar in tone). THE ROOM is one of those rare laugh-riots that is so fantastically inept as to border on genius. While most bad movies offer a handful of terrible scenes divided by stretches of just plain dull, writer-director-producer-star Tommy Wiseau's film offers one moment of disaster after another.

Whether it's the made-up-by-fifth-graders dialogue, the deer-in-headlights performances, or the positively icky sex scenes (love those smushed rose petals on the chubby girl's back), you'll be howling from start to finish.

This movie has already amassed a cult of people who know what to yell at the screen and when; for a movie that's being self-distributed, this rates as some kind of crap-movie miracle.

Keep an eye out for the pointless insert shots of San Francisco, which give the idea of time passing even when it doesn't: one party scene, for example, features eight of these cut-aways.

You really can't believe how terrible THE ROOM is, but at least it's entertaining, albeit in ways that the lazy-eyed, odd-bodied, English-mangling auteur never imagined. Not to be missed.
