Some how combines the insanity of the original film with a touching true story, along with a James Franco performance so over the top, it's priceless. If you love The Room, then you'll definitely love The Disaster Artist.

I was rather pleasantly surprised and impressed by the film and James Franco's performance with this leading role as Tommy Wiseau. James Franco plays along side with his real life younger brother (Dave Franco) as they pair up to head off to LA to make it big in Hollywood.
The middle of the film drags for me, but it had enough "what the," to keep me watching, although somewhat uncomfortably, until the end.
Just before the ending credits, they show a split screen between the movie portrayal of The Room, and the real The Room. This film really nailed the life likeness of the actors/actresses and even to the set design. I had never heard of this film before, considered to be a cult-classic, because it was so bad, it was good? I have not seen the real film, although this biographical film about it, does not make me want to either!

this movie is right up there with "Florence Foster Jenkins", two eccentrics chasing their impossible dream, with equally consummate performances from both leads - a total delight

Wow. James Franco gives quite the performance and let's also hear it for his baby bro! Look for the cameo of the real person behind the movie in the after credit scene. Curious fellow to be sure.

An interesting movie and started to enjoy it mid-way. All in all it was worth watching.

Things that are less annoying than this movie: Fingernails on the chalkboard, a leaf blower at six in the morn on Sunday, the sound of infants crying on an airplane and my mother telling adolescent me how important algebra will be in my life. I have my suspicions that watching this movie gave me 14 extra gray hairs, a hemorrhoid and short term memory loss.

I did like some of the music though...

Terrible- James Franco couldn't even nail Tommy Wiseau's accent. Seemed like a bunch of snobbish poseurs making a pointless film about a talentless money launderer. Read Greg Sestero's book of the same name if you want to read an entertaining behind the scenes look at the film- it's more honest and funnier than Franco's film could ever be,

I didn't know what to expect from this movie. I had no interest in seeing the movie when it was in the theatre and I was not familiar with the story. I borrowed the movie from the library and thoroughly enjoyed this bizarre, but true story. The acting was great, especially from James Franco. After I saw the movie, I had to go online to learn more about Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero.

James Franco is a talentless loser who made a movie about another talentless loser making a movie so bad that it's laugh out loud funny. Ugh, don't waste your time- how about watching a movie that is actually good- there are lots of 'em out there.

If this film wasn't based on a true story, it would seem too absurd to be real. James Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, who wrote and directed a 2003 film "The Room" that is generally considered one of the worst films ever made. The film, "The Room" with its jaw-dropping yet hilarious awfulness, has achieved a significant cult status. The movie "The Disaster Artist" is about the making of "The Room". This movie is fascinating and entertaining, sometimes sad and often very funny. James Franco is fantastic as the eccentric and enigmatic Wiseau. I think this movie was excellent and it is a movie about friendship as much as it is a movie about movie-making. Highly recommended.
