    Wiseau’s a one hit wonder 😉 Neil Breen(!) somehow consistently delivers the goods, each of his new films somehow getting worse and worse as if he is failing miserably in his studies of our species and our interactions with each other.

      Neil Breen is soooooo great. I was turned on to him by watching Red Letter Media. They watched one of his films and nearly went into some type of otherwordly state lol

    “You’re tearing me to pieces, Nick!” (Or was it “apart,” lol?)

    I saw a news piece about this film some years ago, and it’s somehow stuck in my head just from that. I sure as heck won’t spend money to see it, but if the streaming services I use have it, I’ll be all over that.

    I recently got the appeal of horrible movies (“So bad, they’re good!”) after watching some awful sci-fi ones with my family. The main secret is that you need someone to watch it with in person or even narrate the highlights to via live chatting. Laughing about it together is the best part.

    Another key is that it can’t be just be the “blah”/boring type of bad, like some films I’ve watched. Those just make you genuinely angry and disappointed that you’ve just been lured into wasting 90 minutes or more of your life and free time.

    No, it has to be so outlandishly bad that even when potentially gruesome horror moments come along unexpectedly, it ends up being more hilarious (and thus enjoyable) than disturbing.

    And this movie sounds like it’s actually terrible enough to even be entertaining to watch alone…though I’ll definitely still have to share!

    Now I need to check this out. This is my first introduction to the film. I enjoy exploring cult classics.

  4. I really need to see this film before The Disaster Artist comes out! It seems necessary, especially as I’ve always heard “great things” about The Room.

  5. I can thank the Nostalgia Critic for introducing me to this beautiful trainwreak. We can all agree that as a serious movie, it fails in such a spectacular level. As an unintentional comedy, it’s utter gold! As such, let’s all just post quotes from this beautiful disaster.

    Mark: How was work today?
    Johnny: Oh pretty good. We got a new client… at the bank. We make a lot of money.
    Mark: What client?
    Johnny: I cannot tell you, it’s confidential.
    Mark: Oh come on. Why not?
    Johnny: No I can’t. Anyway, how’s your sex life?
    -Nostalgia Critic spitting out his water-
    Mark: I can’t talk about it.
    Johnny: Why not?
    Nostalgia Critic: WHY NOT?! How about you just brought it the f— out of nowhere you…WEIRD ALIEN MAN?!

    OK, that was actually from the N.C. review, but it belongs there since no normal human being ever brings that topic up in regular conversation.

    • Nick Kush says:

      LOL that’s probably my favorite moment in the movie. I remember the first time I watched the film, I was in tears at that point.

    • Jasmine M says:

      Dear Lord, I’m in tears just reading that—the dialogue is hilariously bad and doesn’t follow the grammatical/logical rules used in speech—rules already more casual than those of written formats, mind you!—and the reviewer’s reactions make it that much better. Now I’ll have to go check out that review, too.

      Thank you for sharing this!
