* CreatorsApathy: As production dragged on, professionalism just fell apart. Most of the crew were convinced the film would never be seen by anyone. Greg Sestero admitted to phoning in his performance. Entire scenes were out of focus because they did not bother to check the lens.

** Most of the cast are this as well, especially Greg Sestero (who appeared on the ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'', reprising his role as Mark, being confused about sexual behavior, again). The exception, surprisingly and ironically enough, is Tommy himself, as how he reacts to you depends on ''when'' you encounter him.

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: According to the book TheDisasterArtist, everything that fans love about The Room was ab libbed. Wiseau was writing, directing, casting, rewriting, and acting by the seat of his pants, practically making up the film as he went.

Added DiffLines:

* FamousLastWords: Kyle Vogt, the actor playing Peter, agreed to the role with advance warning to Wiseau that he had another acting commitment and would only be available to shoot for a certain period of time. As the shooting schedule dragged on and on, Vogt eventually had to leave ''the Room'' with several of his character's scenes still to be filmed. His character's final line before disappearing from the film entirely? An appropriately disgusted "That's it; I'm done."
** If you listen carefully just before the movie fades to black, you can hear the voice of (presumably) [[spoiler: a paramedic]] entering the scene and asking "Is everything all right?" Considering the number of times in this film that people tell one another that everything will be/is all right, it seems apropos for someone to ask one last time.

** That Chris R's actor puts on a better show than the rest of the cast during the 'gimme my fucking money' scene with Denny is apparently largely down to the fact that Wiseau ''genuinely'' pissed the actor off between takes.

* MethodActing: Chris R's also stayed in character during his entire time on set, resulting in the other actors being genuinely scared of him.

* CopiouslyCreditedCreator: Tommy Wiseau ignored the normal convention of placing his name at the end with the caption "Written, Produced, and Directed by." possibly in order to have his name in the credits as much as possible.

* FakeNationality: Wiseau claims to have been born in the United States, but given how little he has revealed about himself combined with his speech mannerisms it's pretty safe to say that this isn't the case. Him being from Eastern Europe is the most common guess, [[https://www.reddit.com/r/theroom/comments/1vklp3/i_think_i_have_found_tommys_nationality_new/ and there is reason]] to believe he was born and raised in {{UsefulNotes/Poland}}, which would make this trope apply to Johnny.
