The Room (2003) is an independent film written, produced, and directed and executive produced by Tommy Wiseau. It is the melodramatic story of a love triangle between a man, his fiancée, and his best friend. The principle cast includes Wiseau, Juliette Danielle, Greg Sestero, Philip Haldiman, Carolyn Minnott, and Robyn Paris. Without any studio support, Wiseau spent over $6 million on production and marketing for the film. After a brief run in Los Angeles, the film went on to develop a cult following in the city, because of its perceived unintentional humor. It continues to have popular monthly midnight screenings. Wiseau promotes the film as a black comedy and insists that the "unintentional" humor is intentional, although audience members generally doubt this.

But I can guarantee you this: whether it's a hundred or a thousand years in the future, nobody will ever make a film worse than this one. Seriously.      Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, exhibit A:            I was actually shocked - SHOCKED - to find this had …

If you've yet to see The Room, do yourself a favor and rent it asap.  Terrible acting, non-linear story, bad lighting and unbearable dialouge.  There may be worse movies, but not ones that are pretending to be legit. This clip really tells the whole dismal tale of The Room.
