Tommy Wiseau is the infamous director, actor, screenwriter, and producer behind the 2003 romantic drama, 'The Room'.

Not to be confused with the 2019 film of the same name, Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room' is now commonly known as one of the worst films ever to be made. All with very good reason.

With the vague tagline, "Can you really trust anyone?", 'The Room' consists of one of the most clichéd plots involving a relationship burning out, leaving room for something along the lines of an affair. The film could still have worked despite this unimaginative plot, had there been real production value and a strong script in the first place. But Tommy Wiseau chose to run a one man show and showcase his best talents to the world in one single film. However, it turned out to be far from what he expected.

'The Room' eventually released in 2003 to the amusement of critics and general audiences worldwide. It was meant to be a serious romantic drama, but due to the way it was filmed and produced, not to mention Wiseau's poor acting skills,  the film received poor ratings and even poorer reviews from critics. The film is even rated number 68 on the 'Bottom Rated Movies' list on IMDB with a 3.7 rating.

Some short quotes from 'The Room' include "Cheep Cheep", "Cool story Mark!" and "Why Lisa why?". Not forgetting the famous Tommy Wiseau chicken quote, these are all 'The Room' famous quotes to note. Although the movie was a dud and critics bashed it right out of the theaters, Wiseau was laughing all the way to the bank escalating to a net worth of around six million USD. This is because the movie was so bad, it was good, and people began watching it only for quick laughs.
