I..... hesitate to give this a rating. The problem is this: THE ROOM really IS so bad it's hysterical and I highly suggest everyone at least watching the best of the major moments. But it's gotten so much attention that it now makes money which gives Wiseau some semblance of a career which should be avoided at all costs. Somebody like him should not be given the option to do this as a career.
That being said, I laughed so hard at some moments that it's up there with TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET. The difference is that I STILL don't know if R. Kelly was kidding or not, while I KNOW that Wiseau thought he was making a great drama. From an experience standpoint, this is a 70% - totally worthwhile on a so-bad-it's-good scale. But judging it as an actual film really can't be done - it's so beyond bad that being forced to take it seriously is akin to cinematic waterboarding.
PS. I give this a 1%, but I'm not allowed to give it a 0% apparently.
