Director: James Franco
Starring: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogan, Zac Efron
This film is a bit like a surprise, and unexpectedly nice. I agree James Franco deserves recognition as it is amazing how a story of failure and disappointment can be transformed in to a good entertaining film.
This film is about the aspiring actor and film maker Tommy Wiseau and his journey of making a really bad, probably the worst ever film which becomes the cult movie “The Room”.
I have not watched the film “The Room” neither have heard of Tommy Wiseau before, but James Franco and his brother and co-star Dave Franco has managed to show a story of friendship, empathy and passion in addition to some comedy in style.
For me it is like seeing James Franco acting for the first time, I can hardly recognize him while he is completely absorbed in to the lonely, strange, bruised weird character including the strange accent.
My rating of 7/10 is mostly based on the performance of James Franco
The film has received two nominations for the Golden Globe Award in the categories of Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and won the later with no nominations for the Bafta
I found the film on Netflix and watched it a little while ago. I think your review is excellent.
After watching about 5 minutes of the film, I told Sama that this a very good film that she should pay more attention to it ! I was attracted to the idealistic ideas, ambitions and sincerity of Tom WIseau although I did not like the way he spoke and his weird accent. Sama was very bored and as the film went on and I also became a little bored but continued to watch it to the end. There was a hole in the film not knowing who really was this Tom Wisaeu,where he came from, and where he got his money. Knowing this was a real story made me more confused because if he was a real character , then why the director kept this a mystery to the end of the film. The confusion was partly explained by the end of the film by saying that they still don’t know where he got his money or where he came from (which seems incredible to me. My final confusion was at the end where they show scenes from the original ‘the room film’ and the present film. So are we seeing the exact duplicate of the original film film or what?

Thank you for sharing the post and for your comment. I agree it is replicating a lot of the original movie. But that is why in my review I mentioned it is surprising to see a nice move based on a failure one. I liked the acting of James Franco and the friendship angel they showed in this movie.
