UNDERWEAR, I GOT THE PICTURE
DONT TAAAACH ME MAWTHER FUHKER
I love the pseudo-porn tone that stems from the way characters enter and exit scenes in this movie.
I think their apartment building is the nexus of all realities. There's a Warp Pipe in the metal shed on the rooftop. That's how people spontaneously arrive/depart.
I want "OHIMARK" on my license plate
I love the football tossing bits, it's like Wiseau is attempting to inject a note of naturalism and everyday minutae into his film because that's what guys do when they get together right? Awkwardly standing around talking and casually tossing a football to each other from two feet away, that's what guys do, right?
It only heightens the extreme unnaturalness of the film and Wiseau's conception of how Earth people interact.
It's like finding a bunch of junkies and staging an episode of Friends. All the usual tropes are there; but dear god, how strange they really are...
Is Wiseau under some kind of medication, spell or other weird effect? Is he a robot?
Judging from what (if I remember correctly) Old Zircon wrote about minding this guy for some event; solvent huffing.
Yeah, a friend of mine was in charge of minding him for 3 days and caught him sniffing glue last fall.
It makes a lot of sense. I've never done that, but I've known a couple people who did, and based on what I've heard about it, this movie kind of captures what it's like.

Christopher Walken's kid looks weird.

YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISA!
The citizen cane of its time.
maybe my tolerance is low today or something but this is physically painful to watch
"Johnny" is totally Tommy Wiseau's Mary Sue version of himself. He's successful and rich! His friends admire and depend on him! He has a beautiful fiancee, whom he showers with affection and roses! But he shone too brightly for this cruel world, and everyone betrayed him.
how long did it take you to string that theory together.
I saw this movie at the theatre but it got ruined by all these people shouting the whole way though. People have no decorum in the theatre these days.
Same here, but didn't care because I'd seen it a few times at home and was mostly there to see Tommy in person, which more than lived up to my highest hopes for it.
If it's ever revealed that this movie was made this way on purpose, down to every framed shot, the definition of genius would be made suspect.
I just noticed something: how the hell does Denny know what they were talking about before he showed up?
Wait there are holes in this plot?
I'm not impressed that there are holes, just that each new viewing reveals new ones. Plot holes within plot holes.

Wiseau's home planet hailed this film as the most accurate depiction of Earthlings ever put to film.
I watched the part where the one guy falls down / is shoved several times to figure out what the fuck happened.
I still don't understand.
