Fun Movie! The best part was the end when they show side by sides with the original movie. It's actually pretty amazing that they were able to make a near carbon copy of the original Room movie. If you like dumb comedy this is pretty good also you don't need to have seen the original movie.

It's weird for me to give a movie like this five stars, but... it was exactly as advertised. It was great to see Dave Franco as a lead actor in his own right instead of being in his brother's shadow. And if you stay tuned through to the credits, you'll see a side-by-side, scene-by-scene comparison of the biopic and the original The Room - and you can see how spot-on James Franco's impression of Tommy is.

So bad I fell asleep, then refused to put my self through it again. Much, unnecessary nudity.

you have to watch the cult classic "The Room" by Tommy Wiseau first, before you watch this movie or you will not really understand this movie, which is very good by the way!!!! It is based on the book by the same title :"The disaster artist"...and later on was made into a movie. James Franco makes an excellent job playing Tommy Wiseau. I am very pleasantly surprised by this movie. I give a 4 out of 5 star.

I've seen The Room (the making of which is the core of THIS movie) dozens of times, and it never gets any better. This movie, on the other hand, brings a depth to The Room that I hadn't expected. It does NOT make me like Tommy Weisau (played by James Franco here) any more, but maybe I understand him a little more? *I* quite liked this movie, but I wonder how well it works for someone who hasn't seen the Room before...

This movie won't make sense unless you've seen The Room, but if you have, this is hilarious!

I agree w Vrouk - fantastic performances especially by James Franco and weird true story but really, does anyone care ?

Two francos for the price of one. One franco ain't no laughin' matter so you better be ready
for a lot of franco. Man I love Franco.

OMG we LOVED this movie!!! Amazing job that James Franco did, just amazing. The story is so unusual and the film was incredibly true to life. Watched as a group, wasn't that into seeing it, but absolutely everyone liked it!!! Not for a teen or millenial to understand or appreciate, must be an adult, to understand dreams and desires and making them come true. Ironic and spellbinding.

This was about a recreation of a movie of back in the day. It wasn't for me. However, the original seems to have a cult following. To each their own. The acting was good, but the subject matter was lacking.
