[Insert clever quote from The Room here.]
I can only assume that most of you reading this have either seen (and loved) The Room – one of the worst movies ever made – or are at least aware of its reputation. Self-financed by, written by, directed by, and starring Tommy Wiseau, it had a notoriously troubled production and the resulting film was nothing more than a spectacular disaster.
Well, its leading actors, Wiseau and Greg Sestero, are co-starring in a movie for the first time in almost 15 years. Best F(r)iends. It’s a road trip film, in which Wiseau plays a mortician and Sestero plays a hitchhiker, and they go on an adventure together. Or something. It looks horrendously bad, but I can only assume (and hope) that’s the point.
Unfortunately, Wiseau isn’t directing Best F(r)iends. Gary Fong took the helm, making his directorial debut. There isn’t currently a release date for Best F(r)iends, but you better believe I’m excited to see it whenever it is released.
