Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In real life Greg and Tommy did not move to Los Angeles at the same time. Wiseau offered his LA apartment to Greg rent free for several months, while Tommy came and went from San Francisco at random. Once Greg had booked some small gigs Wiseau suddenly moved in full time to the LA apartment, demanded rent from Greg and set up the divider in the living room as seen in this film. See more »
Goofs At the end of the film, text states that to this day nobody knows how old Wiseau is, where he is from or how he made so much money. In actuality, his naturalization records can be found online that show he was born in Poland on October 3, 1955 and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1984 in San Francisco. According to Sestero, he moved to France before immigrating to the United States and changing his name to Thomas Pierre Wiseau (likely from Tomasz Piotr Wieczorkiewicz or Wieczór). Furthermore, a documentary filmmaker discovered he was born in Poznan, Poland. However, it remains a mystery as Wiseau will not confirm these details, and how he became so wealthy is still not known.

Quotes [from trailer]
Sandy Schklair: Action!
[Wiseau enters the scene]
Tommy Wiseau: I did not hit her. It's not true. It's bullshit! I did not hit her. I did not.
[throws water bottle on the ground]
Tommy Wiseau: Oh, hi Mark.
[pause, then the crew applauds before Greg hugs Wiseau]
