Giving this a solid 3* because as appallingly bad as it is — in many but not all respects — it makes you sit up and take notice, as well as stays in the memory, a hell of a lot more than 90% everything else you see. And it is made from the heart. Never was there a truer auteur than Tommy Wiseau. In this film, he lays bare his hopes, fears, insecurities, and dreams. Thank you, Tommy, for this unintentional gem!
