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 really enjoyed it, wasn't sure I would. Gonna rent the 'ROOM' if I can, but this was good even though I hadn't seen the original. TOO BAD the fix was in and they 'me tooed' FRANCO right out of the last awards season, or he might have at least been nominated for something or other. Hmmm, which competitor's film was worried...............?

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.

This is a phenomenal story and incredible entertainment. This is the kind of true story that it's just really cool that it exists. It is also a hilarious, yet honorable, tribute to the weirdos in all of us and the many many dreams out there that just are not backed up by god-given talent. The most profound line is when Wiseau is surrounded by the audience laughing at him, the center of attention, who poured all he had into his project. He points out that in his story, he is the hero, and all the anonymous, stakeless crowd around him laughing must be the villains. It is not possible to argue any other classification.

Seth Rogen was more restrained than I expected, but the movie is so pointless I coudn't finish. A remake of "Ed Woods"? How many "people with more money than brains make a movie" movies do we need?
