The Room Reviews

December 2, 2017
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.

It is, in short, the ne plus ultra of crap. A trash masterpiece.

...has what every landmark bad movie needs: total commitment.

I've seen worse.

One of the only films from the whole of the 21st Century to live up to every fragment of its hype.

If there is a 21st-century Edward D. Wood Jr., it is probably Tommy Wiseau.

Trust me, you've gotta check this thing out at least once, especially if you like football.

To make a movie that's so bad it's good you need vision, drive, luck and obsessive vanity. Fortuitously, The Room's writer/producer/director/star Tommy Wiseau appears to possess all of these qualities, combined with a total lack of acting talent.

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 question becomes, How much punishment can the audience take and still keep on howling?

Cult-phenom amateur melodrama best left to adults.

If you like bad films performed by those without talent, films like Ed Wood Jr. cranked out, then this one will do the trick.

In the dynasty of dung, among the many pretenders to the best worst movie throne, Tommy Wiseau and his oddly named tragedy truly earns their rotten rep.
April 26, 2010
This self-financed flick's shortcomings go way beyond the standard array of glaring continuity errors, dodgy sets and stagnant editing.

If you experience brain damage as a result of watching this film, I disavow any responsibility whatsoever.

And that's the conundrum of "The Room." It's so very bad that it becomes riveting.

It's hard to describe how bad the acting in The Room is.
August 28, 2009
Tommy Wiseau's film oozes sincerity, which is then slathered in a thick coating of oblivious narcissism, and sadly serves as an example that not everyone should follow their bliss.

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.
