Ladies & Gentlemen, Presenting The Worst Movie Ever Made: ‘The Room’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The Room

I hate April Fools Day. Hate it. It’s a day filled with weak attempts at elementary school shenanigans and absolutely zero pay off. All it accomplishes is annoyances and aggravations. It should be banned alongside The Hills, Madonna, and the Sham-Wow guy.

Now that I’ve vented, I must make mention of one of these horribly useless pranks on Adult Swim’s late-night lineup.

Adult Swim usually plays a couple of episodes of Family Guy at 3:00 and 3:30AM. Being a big fan, most nights I’ll throw it on and watch, especially because at that time of night, there’s very rarely anything else on. Last night when I changed it over to watch, it appeared that there was some kind of soap opera on. This confused and scared me. After a few minutes, the Adult Swim logo appeared at the bottom, so I knew mischief was being had. After a few more minutes, it was made known that I was watching something called The Room.

Now, when it comes to the description “Worst Movie Ever,” it’s something that’s used very liberally and very rarely does it hold any water. As I continued watching this odd film, still confused at Adult Swim’s logic, I quickly realized that it may indeed actually be THE worst movie ever made. As absurd as it sounds, though, I just couldn’t stop watching! The unbelievable amounts of horrid material that I was witnessing demanded that I keep watching, that I keep taking it all in. I’ve never once felt so vulnerable in my entire life.

Click over to check out the trailer for this one.

The acting is hands-down the worst you shall ever see. The dialogue is painfully poor. Nothing that anyone in the movie does makes any sense at all; no one and no event involves a motive; everything seems to be occurring at random. The direction makes Uwe Boll look like Fellini and it makes Ed Wood look like Scorsese. You may very well look more positively at every bad movie you’ve ever seen, simply because of how bad this movie is. There’s not even a freakin’ ROOM involved that justifies the title. They’re in various rooms throughout the movie, but never one special room that may be important. You might say that the product is purposefully bad — maybe a parody of some kind of soap opera — but it didn’t look that way to me… to me it looked like they were trying their best.

You may say “Wow, you’re being very mean.” This is true, but allow me to finish. I believe that everyone should go and find, rent, or buy this movie immediately! I don’t know what it is, but there’s something so excruciatingly joyful about taking this one in — you just have to see and experience it for yourself.

The point of this whole damn piece is to tell you about how Adult Swim pissed me off last night, and how I decided that it was my responsibility to share this movie’s existence with as many people as humanly possible so that you can see for yourself.

  2. Wait, it’s a comedy? Like on purpose?
    Is it bad I want to see this now?

    You have to admit that those were some sweet rooftop green screen effects.

  3. This is a pathetic excuse for a movie but its sheer awfulness is what makes it so damn funny. The guys at TIM AND ERIC AWESOME SHOW GREAT JOB are huge fans of THE ROOM and they even had the director Tommy Wiseau on an episode of their show recently so I sense the hands of Tim and Eric behind this one. I have this on DVD but I would have loved to catch it actually on TV. “You’re tearing me apart Lisa!” Genius.

  4. Wow, I… don’t even know what to make of this. I watched the trailer thinking “this can’t possibly be worse than ‘The Prince and Me 2′” (which I unfortunately watched the last time I was sick, when the remote control was left allll the way across the room from the sofa…), but I think it maybe is. However, I think this may mean that I have to watch it. I see it as “subjecting myself, so others don’t have to.”

  5. I am in love with this movie. I just found out about it about a month ago. I try to make people watch it but it fails 90 percent of the time. they laugh for he first 15 minutes and can’t take much more. soooooo bad. but im pretty sure the title has to do with the room that everyone hooks up in. seems to be the best explanation.
