* [[invoked]]TroubledProduction: The Film.

to:

* [[invoked]]TroubledProduction: The Film.book and ''The Room'''s reputation as a SoBadItsGood film owe their existence to how troubled the production was. Between all of Wiseasu's constant penny-pinching and PrimaDonnaDirector tendencies, Greg considers it a testament to the determination of the cast and crew that the film ended up finished at all.

** Another with Tommy's fake review blurbs; One of his made up "Movie Review publication" sources is ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''....which was a television drama series and not a movie/entertainment publication.

*** Both strangely DoubleSubverted in that....while the finished product is horrible....it's horribleness made it a [[AchievementsInIgnorance success]].

** Tommy submits his film to Paramount, hoping to get them as the distributor. While Greg notes it usually takes about two weeks to get a reply, the film is rejected within ''twenty-four hours''.

** It's strongly hinted that Tommy wrote the quotes from reviews in all the promotional material for ''The Room'', which are from nonexistent sources such as "Entertainment Today" and "Series/BeverlyHills90210" and say the same thing: "Tommy Wiseau is the new Tennesse [sic] Williams, a true ragin' Cajun."

* BerserkButton: Aside from the well-known prohibition against asking questions about Tommy's origins or his personal fortune, you do not leave the set while shooting, you do not steal focus in the scene, and you do ''not'' call Tommy a "pansy."

** On the other hand, other scenes become much funnier. Knowing that "It's not true, it's bullshit, I did not hit her, I did naaaaaat... Oh hai Mark," took thirty-two takes over three hours makes it somehow more hilarious.

** When Greg and Sandy go to cash Tommy's first check, the bank teller gigglingly calls Tommy's account "a bottomless pit". Obviously she doesn't reveal how much money Tommy actually has, but Greg notes that it must be truly astronomical to get her to say that much.

* ExtremeDoormat: Greg. Even considering the fact that Tommy never backs down no matter what, Greg is pretty submissive to him. By the time the timeline reaches actual production of ''The Room'', he offers absolutely no resistance to anything Tommy does or plans to do.

** Once Tommy finally successfully completes a take of the scene of Johnny walking down the stairs and crossing the room to the answering machine, he's quite smug about it. Greg decides not to remind him that earlier that day, Carolyn and Juliette had filmed an entire scene--in the middle of which Carolyn had collapsed from heat exhaustion, gone to the hospital, and returned to finish the scene--in less time than it took Tommy to film that one shot.
