I just need to point out:
"Did you get your promotion?"
"You didn't get it, did you."

"I still love you."
"You're the only one who does..."
Somehow I think the entire script of this movie was the inner musing of a self-obsessed schizophrenic.
Five for the Room, automatically.
The best part of that line is how he pronounces "does"

Almost every scene and line in this film is a bizarre attempt to recreate the way people actually act, as if the people behind it have only ever seen social interaction as outside observers.
This supports my theory that this film was a student project by aliens studying the human race.
I have only seen this movie chopped into youtube clips and I have no goddamn idea what it could possibly be about
The Room is the story of a love triangle between Johnny (Wiseau), his "future wife" Lisa (Danielle), and his best friend Mark (Sestero).
At the beginning of the film, Lisa has become inexplicably dissatisfied with Johnny, confiding to her best friend Michelle (Paris) and her mother Claudette (Minnott) that she finds him boring. Lisa seduces Mark, and they begin an affair that continues throughout the film, even as Mark more than once tries to break it off.
Lisa stays with Johnny because he is a successful banker who has promised to buy her a house. As the wedding date approaches and Johnny's clout at his bank slips, Lisa gets closer to leaving Johnny for Mark, though he appears to be surprised every time she begins flirting with him.
The film has several subplots involving secondary characters. Denny (Haldiman), a neighboring college student whom Johnny supports and loves like a son, has a mysterious run-in with a drug dealer and struggles with his attraction to Lisa. Claudette, Lisa's mother, deals with real estate problems, failed relationships, and breast cancer. Michelle's boyfriend Mike (Mike Holmes) is shamed by Lisa and Claudette walking in on him with Michelle in Johnny and Lisa's living room. All of these subplots are introduced and quickly forgotten, particularly Claudette's breast cancer, which is only mentioned once.
When Lisa throws Johnny a surprise birthday party, she flaunts her affair in front of Johnny, and Johnny and Mark get into two altercations. Johnny has also attached a tape recorder to the telephone, recording an intimate call between his future wife and Mark. Claiming that he doesn't have a friend in the world, Johnny locks himself in his bathroom until everyone has left. When he comes out, he destroys his apartment, finds a handgun and shoots himself through the mouth.
Lisa and Mark discover Johnny's corpse soon afterward, and Denny is not far behind. Mark blames Johnny's death on Lisa, calling her a tramp and saying that she'll never have him, and that he doesn't love her. Denny blames Johnny's death on Lisa and Mark, urging them to leave him alone with the corpse so he can say farewell, but as the film closes, Lisa and Mark remain with Denny as police sirens grow louder.
And there is a Rifftrax w/Nelson, Murphy and Corbett commenting and they pretty much tear The Room to pieces.
You think about everything, ha ha.

He doesn't care about anything. Not even pizza.
One of the funnest things to keep an eye out for, when watching The Room, is which lines of Wisseau's dialogue are dubbed in, and which are actually him speaking. Apparently, some of the original takes were so bad that they had to be replaced in post. So keep that in mind, some of these awful line readings were (at least) the SECOND TRY.

So last week some friends and I got together to watch the room for the first time. Even though I very rarely drink, about five minutes into it I decide this movie requires a drinking game. The rules: Drink whenever the dialog seems to be written by someone who has never actually had human interaction. Some of us didn't make it.
No promotion? But he saved them bondles!
This movie is so artless that it becomes art. It gets better with every viewing.
They had a budget of 6 million dollars, but you sure can't tell from watching the film.
This movie is better than people give it credit for. Like that scene in the flower shop where he buys some flowers ... ? Well those very same flowers show up in this scene. That's just how good Wiseau is.
