* DownerEnding: Looking past the DissonantSerenity of this masterpiece,[[spoiler:Johnny discovers Lisa's affair, ransacks his own apartment and kills himself. The film ends with Lisa, Mark, and Denny variously screaming at each other and crying.]] In addition, [[spoiler: we can assume that both Denny and Lisa are likely doomed, because Johnny was paying their bills. Really the only bright spot in the ending is that Lisa gets her comeuppeance and according to WordOfGod Claudette overcomes her cancer.]]

** Johnny begins a scene visibly(?) frustrated over the accusations of him hitting Lisa and gets upset when Mark even asks him about it. ''In this very same scene'', Mark tells him about a woman who ended up in a hospital as a result of domestic violence and [[DissonantLaughter finds this amusing]].

-->'''Mark''' (after visibly noticing Lisa is trying to seduce him): "I mean, the candles...the music...the sexy dress, I mean...what's going on here?"

* EasilyForgiven: Mark ''nearly shoves Peter over the edge of the roof'' and is forgiven almost instantly.

* FemaleGaze: According to ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist'', this was the reason behind the gratuitous close-up of Tommy Wiseau's bare ass. He was inspired by a movie where Brad Pitt did it, and claimed "[[SexSells we have to show my ass or the movie won't sell]]". Unfortunately, he seems to overlook that... he doesn't pull it off as well as Pitt does.

* FemaleGaze: It's definitely there to look at, that's for sure. According to ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist'', this was the reason behind the gratuitous close-up of Tommy Wiseau's bare ass.

Unfortunately, he seems to overlook that... he doesn't pull it off as well as Pitt does.The reception can be painfully, ''painfully'' subjective.



* FlatCharacter: Due to a lack of characterization and an abundance of bad writing, very few, if any, characters have any effective personality traits or CharacterDevelopment that make them well-rounded characters. Greg Sestero personally described Mark as a character "without a head or tail".

* ShowDontTell: This film is a major violator of this rule. We are told, repeatedly, that Johnnie is "a wonderful person," though he comes off more as a creepy weirdo who bribes people to like him. And, as mentioned many many other times in this page, we are told time and again that Lisa is "beautiful," which the actress hired for the role doesn't quite live up to. Anything we need to know about a character is told to us point blank, usually awkwardly.
