The Room (2003)
Critic Consensus: A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau's misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again.

Critic Reviews for The Room
As someone who's watched more bad movies than you can imagine, I'm mostly immune to the so-bad-it's-good aesthetic, though I can see how, viewed in a theater at midnight after a few drinks, this might conjure up its own hilariously demented reality.
The Room, has been maligned as one of the most inept movies ever made when in fact it is a sardonic comedy about sexual politics in the age of terror.
Given audience reaction at screening attended, pic may be something of a first: A movie that prompts most of its viewers to ask for their money back -- before even 30 minutes have passed.
We sit there in the dark, our eyes move over flutters of passive motion, and eventually the screen goes black. That's it.
The Room is pure unintentional camp. Somehow 14 years later it's still popular and is now considered a cult classic.
Audience Reviews for The Room
Are you kidding me? This is brillant!!!
Behold, ladies and gentlemen, the new Ed Wood of the 21st century, a guy so laughably inept in just about everything (his acting is atrocious) that he made me even feel sorry for him - but then I only need to think about how misogynist this awful movie is to not care anymore.
Poorly written, acted and executed, yet entertaining to an extent amidst all the disaster. The Room, though sacred and notorious for one Tommy Wiseau, is so terrible it's great in its cult-like way. 1/5
