t's an underdog story that ultimately has the last laugh, given we're watching James Franco recreate Tommy's life for a film that has become the dark horse this awards season.

If you've never seen The Room, don't try to figure out the phenomenon; simply enjoy witnessing the [creation] of it. And if you are, in fact, a Room devotee, prepare to laugh harder than you have ever laughed in your life.

What it all amounts to is a tremendously funny feel good film that doesn't quite stand on its own so much as it plays as a great (the BEST, really) companion-piece to The Room that a cult film fan could ask for.

The Disaster Artist is undeniably fun, but just skin deep.

Franco is all business portraying it's writer, director, producer and possible vampire and his strange behavior during the making of the movie. Oscar nomination for Franco? Better be. Oscar nomination for the movie? Possibly.

This is one of the funniest movies ever made. James Franco should be nominated for an Oscar for his performance. The film is non-stop laughter, with a few serious moments. I loved it.

The Disaster Artist is unique, off kilter and strangely inspiring in the end. To his credit, it's a movie only a fellow wierdo like James Franco could make. Go see it.

With this film, Tommy Wiseau has become famous again. He's selling Wiseau underwear and going on tour. He may be a Disaster Artist but with [James] Franco's help, he's having the last laugh.

'The Disaster Artist' is a great film that allows us to know a little better how such an unclassifiable work as 'The Room' was made. [Full Review in Spanish]

Well-intentioned and sometimes genuinely funny but ultimately still a little depressing.

Even Room obsessives who have read the book multiple times should find themselves laughing anew; the material is gold, and and handled masterfully.
July 23, 2019
A lovingly made homage to a film so inconceivably created, it not only deepens the cultish reverie of the film but adds a certain textual dimension to the still resonant Hollywood dream of making it in show business.

The spiritual companion piece to Ed Wood, The Disaster Artist is another cheerful Hollywood-insider piece about a man whose ambitions far outweigh his expertise.

A triumphant comedic companion to the 'The Room'.

So how is it? In a word, unnecessary. But in two words? Unnecessary and hilarious

One can't quite escape the feeling that it's punching down rather than up, its detached irony ending up as too arch and smug to really stick the landing.
