Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
Aspiring actor Greg Sestero befriends the eccentric Tommy Wiseau. The two travel to L.A, and when Hollywood rejects them, Tommy decides to write, direct, produce and star in their own movie. That movie is The Room, which has attained cult status as the "Citizen Kane" of bad movies.Written by
Greg Sestero is 6'2, but Dave Franco is 5'7. Tommy Wiseau is 5'9, and James Franco is 5'11 which puts him somewhat convincingly in the ballpark to play Wiseau. Sestero is 5" taller than Wiseau, but James Franco is 4" taller than his brother, Dave. So while the real Sestero was looking down at the real Wiseau while filming The Room (2003), in the film "The Disaster Artist" the character Wiseau was looking down at the character Sestero from roughly the same height difference.

If you were to ask the five best filmmakers in the world right now to make a movie like this... it... it wouldn't even be in the same universe.
I was blown away. Like, like three minutes in, I turn to my friend, "This is the fucking greatest movie I've ever seen in my life."
It has withstood, like, ten years? And people are still watching a movie and talking about a movie. People aren't doing that about whatever won the Oscar for Best Picture ten years ago.
What genius is...

There was an odd buzz surrounding this film, that in my opinion was totally unmerited. It just scratches the surface of the story and embellishes some things. I'm someone who is not a fan of The Room because, well it's really bad. That being said I really wanted to see what Franco had to offer here as far as unpacking what the hell caused the debacle of a film. Really Disaster Artist was an empty look and borders on biography and parody. I found the end to be very very overdone and from what I know, entirely fabricated.
