Worst. Film. Ever.

Right, I realise I may be a bit slow in discovering this but I have just stumbled upon a film called 'The Room'. It is written, produced and acted in by a French guy named Tommy Wiseau. I have only seen four clips from the film but it is being branded the worst film ever.

Here is a line taken from an imdb review of the film:

This film is like getting stabbed in the head.

Says it all really, doesn't it?
Additionally, I checked out the trivia and goofs sections of the imdb page and found out the following:

Trivia: The film was shot simultaneously on 35 mm film and high-definition video. Tommy Wiseau was confused about the differences between the formats, so he used both cameras on the same mount. Wiseau purchased the cameras instead of renting them as film productions usually do.

OK, so the producer is clearly a dumbass... Surely anyone worth his salt in the film industry would know that.
Goofs: Plot holes: In an early scene, halfway through a conversation about planning a birthday party for Johnny, Claudette off-handedly tells Lisa: "I got the results of the test back. I definitely have breast cancer." The issue is never revisited during the rest of the film.

Breast cancer!? Sounds like quite a significant plot element don't ya think!?

Due to the above statements from imdb my curiosity has been triggered. I am now actively seeking out a way to watch this movie, even if I have to buy it. 

So, without further ado, here are some clips of this monumental film, The Room (2003).

Check out the brilliant acting in this first clip. The music really compliments the violence of these two gargantuan men... The whole way through this clip I was thinking, what are these kids doing hanging with this old French dude?

This second clip is quite possibly the worst scripted scene ever captured on film.

Clip 3 sees a compelling performance from Mr Wiseau, "You are tearing me apart Lisa!"
Again an example of awful dialogue in the fourth clip. I love the way he seems so angry then just says "Oh, hi Mark."

I hope you enjoyed that. I must see this film!


  1. hahaha omfg! first clip "i'm gonna kill you, you basteerrrrddd

  2. i love in the last clip where he goes "i am so glad to have you as my best friend and i love lisa so much" not seperating ANY words lol

  3. I know! hahaha!
    'Oh, hi Mark.'

  4. Oh God, The Room. It's a big deal out where I live (40 miles from West Hollywood). I really want to see it, and your clips of it only intensify that need.

  5. I want to see it too!
    But they only rarely have screenings in the UK and it's always in places like London which are too far.
    They sell the DVD on amazon in the US I believe.
