The Disaster Artist review: an unusual Hollywood story/bromance with a twist

Ambitious filmmaker Tommy Wiseau drops $6 million on his film The Room, which is a notorious flop, then gains worldwide cult status after hordes of people discover this "Citizen Kane of bad films".

About: With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau-an artist whose passion was as honest as his methods were questionable-into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Subsequent screenings of the movie inspired audience participation including bringing plastic spoons and soft inflatable footballs, which will be encouraged at the Regal double feature.

Struggling San Franciscan actor Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) strikes up a friendship with his eccentric but bold acting classmate Tommy Wiseau (James Franco), who writhes around the stage and scales the walls during his monologue.

Not just for The Room fans, The Disaster Artist will also appeal to anyone interested in an unusual Hollywood story, or even a bromance with a twist.

But I saw "The Room" first, and I can't help but think my experience of watching "The Disaster Artist" was enhanced by viewing the train wreck first. Cost for the event is a $5 upcharge over the regular theater ticket price.
