Tampa Theatre Rewind: The Room says
I want to talk to the people who haven't seen The Room before. If that’s not you, you can skip this description — you're my favorite customer. See you on Friday, April 29th. Bye.

But for the rest of you, let's get this out in the light: The Room isn't a good movie. Actually, it's horrendous. It's incompetently made, stiffly acted, barely filmed, and written like somebody tore every other page out of a Harlequin romance and then translated it into Czech and back. And oh the interminable, unbearable "love" scenes.

But it’s not a REWIND movie because it’s bad. The Room is a REWIND movie because it’s perfectly naive. We can laugh at it ironically because it's about the least ironic movie of the last 50 years.

Tommy Wiseau made The Room, and nobody can ever take that away from him. He wrote, directed, produced, and stars in it. He thought it would make him a star. Beyond that, nobody knows him — he's given conflicting answers on his age, where he's from, how he paid for the movie, and what it even is. But art is a conversation, and whatever he was trying to make the audience feel, he succeeded in giving us a surreal, sui generi, pop-culture touchstone. He made a mess, and we made it funny. Don’t worry about it.
