I heard about this movie and you are right, the writer/director was taking this project seriously. It took a colossally bad movie to knock Plan 9 From Outer Space off its throne and he managed to put that movie out.

Oh HI Review! This movie is so bad, it's amazing and there should be a class on it at film school. It's gets more entertaining with every view. I hope Doc Mock can get the rights to watch it on the show.

They showed this on Adult Swim last year as an April Fools joke. I ended up watching reruns of Rosanne.

I saw it when it aired on adult swim, I kept waiting for it to end but it just fucking kept going. He was on Tim and Eric the week before and was talking about it or something. It's Tim and Eric bad.

Well I believe, it's neither a comedy or in earnest. It's art for the sake of art. Reality theory rather than a mimesis of any sort of actual situation that could occur. it leaves you aware of the film and laughing in a sort of bemusement so powerful it borders comedy- BUT. it is not comedy.

Good analysis though,you always get them spot on and you tend to pick up on stuff some people dont even notice. =D

That's a pretty long way to say "it's a really shitty movie".



I remember seeing it on April Fool's Day on Adult Swim and thinking, "huh, they're showing some foreign movie this time."

Oh HIIIIII Protoclown!

There is also a fantastic rifftrack of the film done by the MST3K guys. They bent their "no R-rated movies" rule because the film was JUST. TOO. GOOD. TO. RESIST.

You forgot to mention the copious amounts of naked Tommy Wiseau ass in this film. COPIOUS. And the multiple, painful, gratuitous sex scenes (with recycled footage, I believe).

Actually, green screen isn't too expensive. The software costs more than the screen(matte green material is all you need, most people just use a dining table cloth)and even then it isn't too bad. But yeah. Still more than just going to the roof of a building.

Great review. I plan on seeing this sometime. "YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISAAAA"

The best part of the green screened roof top is the background changes *locations* from scene to scene!

Here in Austin, TX they had a midnight screening of it during in the summer and I heard about it and went in to see it. I had no idea what it was about and holy crap its the best example of a "so bad its good" film. It was hilarious and everyone was so into it. I would love to go see it again if they do it again.

For some reason I decided to talk like Tommy for a few hours this past weekend. The girlfriend wasn't amused.

Hahaha! But I am!

Did you at any point tell her that she was "tearing you apart"?

Tell her you'll never do it again, but make sure you always greet her by saying "oh, hi [name]".

Yeah, this movie is a perfect example of a "so bad, it's good" film.

By the way Proto, his accent sounds kinda like a mild French...

Yeah, it's a great game. I tested it out earlier this year at The Behemoth studios and was glad to see how well they copied the movie.
