A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Tommy Wiseau's The Room (2003).
Comedy Drama - This is a comedy based on the making of the infamously bad 2003 cult
classic film The Room, with James Franco both starring and
directing. Fans of him and his brother Dave, co-starring together
for the first time, will have plenty to enjoy here. Many familiar
faces in the cast such as Seth Rogen have smaller supporting roles
or just cameos, such as Sharon Stone. The target is younger adults,
and profanity, nudity, and sexual content make the film not for
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 14 S-words; 2 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: None. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant banter, wisecracks, sight gags, physical gags, comic situations, sometimes suggestive.
Roger EbertFull Review Average For all of its potential, in both the original source and even from the movie itself, the heart of "The Disaster Artist” is smaller than it should be.
USA TodayFull Review Good The film is an interesting beast, being a sort-of biopic of someone who is mostly unknown: If you've never seen The Room, Disaster Artist might as well be out-there fiction. The funniest material does call back to Wiseau's "best worst movie,” so while it's not entirely necessary, doing some preliminary viewing homework is worth it.
NY PostFull Review Good Funny — sometimes brutally — and surprisingly touching, it works whether you've seen the source material or not, though there are plentiful shout-outs to die-hard fans.
Rolling StoneFull Review Very Good ...a comic bonanza that deserves to form its own cult. But it's James Franco who hits a new career peak as actor and director by making sure his film is as heartfelt as it is hilarious. The Disaster Artist is his baby. But the movie beautifully pays tribute to both their talents.
