DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The cast – full of talented actors.Especially Seth Rogen & Josh Hutcherson – small roles but you’ll crack every time you see them on screen.
2) Ed Wood – 2017 Version
3) The alley scene with Zac Efron

 

Cons –

 

1) The humor in the movie comes from the caricature what Tommy Wiseau is, however, there are very few scenes where the movie is actually funny.If a person watches this movie without any knowledge of The Room or Tommy Wiseau it’s gonna be very difficult for him to enjoy it.
2) Almost all funny scenes of the movie are already spoiled in the trailer.

4) The movie failed to explain the events of the prequel, establishing the prequel as a movie full of potholes.
