    Incredibly entertaining, especially if you are a fan of The Room. The loving parody of the best/worst film is made better by the all-star cast of comedians that pop up throughout it. I saw it at a theatre that has been playing the room every month for years now, so it may be a little skewed, but the crowd was in hysterics for the entire movie. 10 months 2 weeks ago

    James Franco gives a very convincing performance as Tommy Wiseau and the attention to detail and fun in making this film are evident and mostly impressive. That said, the film presents nothing particularly moving or interesting. There are no grand messages to take away, no real understanding of why Tommy is so weird, and maybe that's fine -- it is a comedy after all.

    And yet, given the setup with the testimonials from celebrities at the beginning, you expect something more momentous to come from this film. Instead, you get an odd story about a guy that made a movie with someone when he couldn't connect with anyone else.

    Nonetheless, the film is very laugh out loud funny (when it's not just recycling awkwardness from The Room) and the closing side-by-side comparison is so impressive.
