Movie Info

The dynamic duo of Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have reunited for a dream project, Best F(r)iends. Be one of the first to see their new film, plus bonus content, coming to the big screen on March 30 and April 2 only! When a drifter (Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician's old habits. But greed, hatred, and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. Nothing can accurately describe basking in the unholy glow that is the 'Best F(r)iends' saga--a dark, strange journey that reminds you why we all fell in love with this amazing duo in the first place.

Critic Reviews for Best F(r)iends, Part 1

All Critics (7)

It won't tear you apart with laughter or leave you wondering how it got made, but very few films can manage that.

July 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Los Angles lore is referenced but never pursued, and director Justin MacGregor leans into the piecemeal ludicrousness with stylised sequences that embrace self-deprecating mockery.

July 14, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

To really enjoy this picture, one must require severe acclimatisation to the 'so bad it's good' style of filmmaking, the only discernible way to get the most out of Justin MacGregor's tame debut.

July 3, 2018 | Full Review…

While it doesn't top the eccentricity of Wiseau's cult favorite, Best F(r)iends is written by a man who understands, probably more than anybody, the appeal behind The Room's creator.

April 4, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Tone deaf at almost every turn, Best F(r)iends won't have the same legs as The Room but could offer a night of fun with some of your closest f(r)iends. It's terrible.

April 2, 2018 | Rating: D | Full Review…

As for the film itself, director Justin MacGregor certainly plays into the absurdity of the script's strange premise and twisted plotting.
