Our Take

8.6
The Staff

A hilarious and smart comedy that is almost impossible to hate. It doesn’t matter if you liked The Room or not; or if you’ve even heard of it, you will find The Disaster Artist extremely enjoyable. Same applies for James Franco, it’s irrelevant if you think he’s the hottest man walking or a complete waste of screen-time – this movie is better approached without any preconceived ideas. It follows the true events surrounding Tommy Wiseau’s making of The Room, a movie so bad it actually became a worldwide hit. Tommy’s character, played by Franco, is 100% mystery. He pops out of nowhere and does and says things that contain little to no logic. Capitalizing on this, the movie is both absolutely hilarious and intriguing from beginning to end.

I didn’t watch the room, but it’s possibly a better movie than this.

I’m a Franco fan for life! I laughed, and making me laugh is not easy to do!

Actually one of the only comedies I’ve watched in recent memory that genuinely made me laugh. Like laugh-out-loud laugh.
