It's obvious you haven't been introduced to the cultural phenomenon known as The Room
. What makes this scene -- the whole film, really -- so laugh-out-loud funny is that Tommy Wiseau wasn't
playing it for laughs. He made the film with the utmost of sincerity and intended for the audience to approach it as such. He thought he was making a deeply moving drama. Instead, the storytelling, the writing, the directing, and the acting were so thoroughly inept -- the delivery of the wretched lines so baldly on the nose -- that every every frame of the film descended into unintentional comedy. The Room
bombed at the box office but soon developed into a cult classic in the vein of Rocky Horror Picture Show
. . . except that whereas Rocky Horror
is a truly great flick, The Room
has been justly dubbed one of the worst movies of all time. If you have a taste for so-awful-it's-awesome cinema, you really need to give The Room
a try, preferably at a raucous audience screening. You'll either hate it with a passion or you won't be able to get it out of your head. Or both.
