Lisa will tear you apart.

There are no words in my version of the English language which can accurately describe writer/director/star Tommy Wiseau's impossibly surreal 2003 romanatic drama The Room to anyone who has not yet experienced the film for themselves. Perceived unintentional humor abounds, highlighted by a deliriously entertaining albeit undeniably awful performance from its creepy long-haired creator and a plothole-riddled script that appears to have been haphazardly conceived by a classroom full of melodramatic second-graders who spent several weeks studying old episodes of All My Children. As genuinely awful as this whole mess may seem, you'll soon discover that it's actually quite difficult to despise The Room and its quirky inhabitants, especially once that bottomless collection of memorable one-liners, awkward sex scenes, and cheap R&B tunes works its way deep into your impressionable little brain. However, despite the miles of cinematic ineptitude laced throughout the picture, one can't help but wonder if this hilariously foul affair is some sort of bizarre experiment perpetrated by a savvy group of demented sketch comics with a decidedly warped sense of humor and the uncanny ability to hide their self-awareness. Either way, The Room is a blast from beginning to end. Watch it with someone you love, but remember to keep a cassette tape in your breast pocket in order to record damning conversations.

What's weird is that I find myself thinking about The Room more often than I probably should. If I could find the time, I'd probably watch it daily. No joke!

Why is THE ROOM on Adult Swim at 1am? It's not listed in the cable guide. This must be some kind of cruel joke. Thank the Lord I missed the sex scenes. I don't need any more sleepless nights.

That's excellent! I'm honestly not surprised that the brains behind Adult Swim would find this sort of nonsense appealing. Good for them; this thing deserves to be seen.

I just got The Room in the mail two days ago, (and autographed by Tommy Wiseau himself =D) and I loved it.
I showed it to my friends, and they said it was "the best movie ever crafted by human hands." The funniest parts were any scene with Tommy Wiseau (Johnny) in them, mostly because half of his lines are voice-overs, and near the end of the movie where he says "don't touch me mother-fucker."
There's about 6 sex scenes in the movie, which is also a plus.

Overall, I would say buy this movie if you want a laugh, it's actually a great movie.

It's only $9.00.
