Storyline

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 rorybobglynn

Goofs

During the film's premiere, scenes from The Room are shown out of order. Specifically, the "You are tearing me apart, Lisa!" scene is shown before the rooftop "I did not" scene, when in actuality it is the other way around. See more »

Quotes

Philip: [to Greg] Can we ask you something? What's this movie about?
Robyn Paris: I have a theory - it's autobiographical. Someone in his life was a Denny, a kid brother, someone he looked out for. Someone else was a Mark, the better-looking friend he was always jealous of. I'm sure there was a Michelle somewhere, and a Mike.
Juliette: So who was Lisa? Someone who broke his heart, stabbed him the back and ruined his life?
Robyn Paris: Pretty obvious to me - that's the universe.

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.
