The Room

Directed by Tommy Wiseau (Wiseau-Films)


The Room isn't the first movie to feature awful acting, a tissue-thin plot and weird editing choices, but the extremes that it takes them to is what makes it one of the best worst movies. Tommy Wiseau not only wrote and directed but also stars as Johnny, a nice guy whose girlfriend cheats on him with his best friend. From this modicum of story Wiseau wrings out 99 minutes of hilariously bad film (the soft-core sex scenes add at least 15 minutes to the final running time). Watched alone it's just sad, but with friends it actually becomes entertaining.
