The Room

The Room

Magic. Pure magic. No matter how many times I see The Room it boggles my mind how perfectly bad it is. Every bit of its badness is executed with incredible comic timing. Its performances are a hypnotic blend of overacting and flat acting. The casting is a thing of beauty. It's almost painful to see some characters sharing the screen. The dialogue is instantly quotable. Unlike most bad movies, The Room is outrageously entertaining, and consistently entertaining. When its raucous ending kicks in to gear, I have to ask myself, is Tommy Wiseau a comic genius who has pulled one over on us for the past decade and a half? I don't know, but either way, I thank him for The Room.
