The Room (2003) Tommy Wiseau.
I admit I LOVE b-grade films. This has gotta be one of the unintentionally funniest films since Megalodon.
The Room is a vanity piece that was written, directed, and produced by Tommy Wiseau - who also plays the part of main actor Johnny. Johnny is a long
greasy-haired, old man wrestler-bodied, forty-something, high flying banker who is engaged to a young blonde. The true backstory to the production of
the film has been revisited in the The Disaster Artist (2017) with James Franco playing Tommy.
This film must be watched for the long, awkward sex scenes between Johnny and his girlfriend. Dubbed over the top of the love-scenes is a sound track
of 90s pop and added-in recordings of Johnny giggling, his weird heavy breathing and "ooooh" "mmmmms". These scenes are extremely corny including
pillar candles, red roses, what is meant to look like rain on a window but appears to be a hose spraying water onto a pane of glass. Oh and there's
plenty of nip action and unfortunately old man bum.
Johnny has so much fake laughter after every one of his lines. Literally, every line. His voice also raises several octaves in the space of one
sentence. The sound dubbing goes out in the majority of the film and there is one scene that is completely out of focus. No one can act at all and
often fumble over each others lines (see the florist scene).
If you are going to see The Disaster Artist definitely see The Room first. As bad movies go I give this 5 out of 5 for hilarity and poor acting.
Have you seen The Room? What was your take?
