Part of Midnight Movies.

A friendly, selfless man who greets everyone with a disarming "Oh, hai..." discovers that you can't trust anyone after getting engaged to a manipulative, self-serving siren who seduces his best friend and destroys his life. Upon release in Los Angeles, THE ROOM began attracting a small crowd of devoted cult followers. Word of THE ROOM's hopelessly incompetent, unintentionally hilarious charms began to spread, and screenings started to crop up from coast to coast.

“THE ROOM plays out like a Jacobean tragedy set to a sleazy slow jams soundtrack, ultimately resolving in what it tries very hard to present as a sad ending. But THE ROOM utterly fails in its attempts to make us take seriously these characters and plot points, because we’re too busy marveling at the weirdness of every single thing happening onscreen.” —Aja Romano, Vox

“THE ROOM rises above garden-variety awful for a number of reasons, not least of them Wiseau himself. With his hulking physique, mane of black hair and vaguely Teutonic accent, Wiseau is jaw-droppingly miscast as a Regular Joe romantic lead. He looks like he should be playing a death-metal singer or a Viking warrior.” —Nate Jones, Time

“I've seen the film well over a hundred times, and there is no irony in my admiration.” —Gene Park, Washington Post
