The Room (film)

The Room (film)

The Room is a 2003 drama film written and directed by its main actor, Tommy Wiseau, who is also credited on screen as both the movie's producer and executive producer. The principal cast includes Wiseau, Juliette Danielle, Greg Sestero, Philip Haldiman, Carolyn Minnott, and Robyn Paris. The Room tells the melodramatic story of a love triangle between a man, his fiancée, and his best friend.

Without any studio support, Wiseau spent over US$6 million on production and marketing for the film. Wiseau promotes the film as a black comedy and insists that its humor is actually intentional, although a cast member has anonymously disputed these claims and many audience members generally view the film as a poorly made drama.

The Room has been cited by some critics as one of the worst films ever made, and has been called "the Citizen Kane of bad movies." After a brief run in Los Angeles, the film went on to develop a cult following and continues to have midnight screenings around the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Denmark.
