The Room is one of the worst movies ever made. It’s shockingly bad, with a terrible storyline, unnatural dialogue, and some of the cheesiest acting you’ve ever seen.
And yet The Room, written, directed by, and starring Tommy Wiseau, has become a cult classic. And now James Franco has made a movie about the making of The Room. How meta.
The Disaster Artist sees Franco playing Wiseau as he tries to act his way through his own terrible script and get The Room in the can.
The Room may be a terrible film, but The Disaster Artist looks like it will be worth watching. Unfortunately, you’ll have to watch The Room first to understand the references.
