Critic Reviews for The Disaster Artist
Funny -- sometimes brutally -- and surprisingly touching, it works whether you've seen the source material or not, though there are plentiful shout-outs to die-hard fans.
Wiseau also makes a pretty good avatar for Franco himself: a mercurial, relentless performer whose ambition encompasses a thrilling willingness to crash and burn. And it's that identification that makes the comedy work here: Franco kids because he loves.
"The Disaster Artist" is a sweet, emotionally engaging tribute to friendship, the movies and the importance of dreams.
Franco delivers a comedy that's delightfully offbeat. It probably helps if you've actually seen "The Room," but you can safely spare yourself that experience.
[James] Franco has not just made a really sharp, funny movie about movie making. He's also made a layered and intimate portrait of a friendship with his own brother, Dave Franco.
Audience Reviews for The Disaster Artist
I'll preface this review by saying I think you need to have seen and been familiar with The Room in order to appreciate this film. Otherwise, it comes off as a strange story and an overly eccentric performance by Franco, rather than an accurate portrayal of story and character. You won't die laughing or be emotionally moved to tears, but it's a well-balanced film that gets an extra bump for doing justice as an homage to a hilariously awful cult classic.
Surprisingly funny. Franco did a wonderful job honoring the source material. I still cannot believe this was a real movie made by a real person.
Featuring excellent work from both Franco brothers, The Disaster Artist is a funny and strangely heart-warming film about the difficulties of Hollywood and the love of the craft.
