“The Disaster Artist” has audiences rolling in the aisles

Dave Franco, playing Greg Sestero, and James Franco, as Tommy Wiseau, attend the premiere of their movie “The Room” in “The Disaster Artist.” Photo used with the permission of the Tribune News Service.

Fourteen years after the worst movie to ever be made was released, James Franco and Seth Rogan revived Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” by bringing “The Disaster Artist” to life.

To understand “The Disaster Artist,” one must understand the movie it was based on. A movie directed, produced and acted by Wiseau, “The Room” follows the twisted relationship between successful banker and his fiancée Lisa. The movie is a trainwreck, with multiple plot holes, strange scenes that do not flow well, terrible acting and a confusing storyline. “The Room” became a cult classic for being so terrible it is funny.

Franco and Rogan’s “The Disaster Artist” documents the making of the movie, following the book of the same name written by Greg Sestero, who played Mark in the original film. “The Disaster Artist” is hilarious, and is easily one of my favorite comedies. Franco perfectly captures Wiseau’s mannerisms and accent, and the dysfunction of the production process of “The Room.”

I loved “The Disaster Artist,” but it would be hard to understand if I had not previously seen “The Room.” Most of the jokes are still funny, I died watching Franco do the rooftop scene over and over again, but an understanding of how awful “The Room” adds to the experience of the film.
