This time around, the Movie of the Week is Tommy Wiseau's "The Room". This bizarre, genre-confused film is regarded by many as 'the worst movie ever made', yet people love it. This film has developed a huge cult following over the past 15 years, so much so that a documentary has recently been made ("The Disaster Artist") by James Franco about the movie and the artist behind it. It has no redeeming value whatsoever - and that's exactly what is so charming and hypnotic about it.
Johnny (Tommy Wiseau) is a San Franciscan man who seems to have it all: a high-paying job as a banker, a bunch of friends--one of them being Mark (Greg Sestero), to whom he's the closest--and a beautiful fiancee named Lisa (Juliette Danielle), whom he's been engaged to for seven years. From the outset, Johnny's got everything going for him...that is, until he faces the worst form of betrayal ever, and from then on everything begins to crumble.
