* TheyJustDidntCare: Apparently true of pretty much the entire cast & crew [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously save for Wiseau]].
** Even more so for the stage production of the movie, which ended up like a high school improv session. In particular, Greg Sestero used his stage time to mock the production instead of making a futile effort to take his lines seriously.
** ''Then'' you have the [=DVD=] release itself, which has [[TyopOnTheCover several mispellings]] on the menu and other errors. For example, the word "sexuality" being written as "sexualality" on the MPAA Rating screen and one chapter titled "Lisa Calls Mark" has the two L's replaced with the number 11.

** Claudette's dialogue makes much more sense if you assume she's a drama queen and an attention whore - traits that clearly run in the family. If, as she claims, "nobody listens" to her, this is probably not the first time she's made up something like breast cancer, hence Lisa's calm reaction.

** Some of the supporting cast aren't much better; Claudette is a more pragmatic version of Lisa, Chris-R is a violent drug dealer who holds Denny at gunpoint, Mike does absolutely nothing plot relevant, Peter (the OnlySaneMan) goes missing halfway through the film, and Stephen just casually saunters into the plot in the last twenty minutes and acts as if we have any idea who he is. Michelle is the OnlySaneMan who actually bothers to stick around for the duration of the film, and that isn't enough to prevent [[spoiler: Johnny's suicide.]]

** As utterly pathetic the WimpFight between Johnny and Mark was, Wiseau really was hurting Sestero as by the end of it, the latter had bruises all over his arms and wrists from the former's hands, which have apparent "cyborg-like strength".

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Both "Doggie" - the pug that is lovingly referred to as such by Johnny at the flower shop, and Chris-R seem to be considered the only good actors in the film, but that is not really saying much.

** According to [[Literature/TheDisasterArtist Greg Sestero]], Johnny from was this for Tommy Wiseau. A well-liked, well-off man with a lavish apartment in San Franciso. Honestly, if it wasn't for his girlfriend cheating on him with his best friend, the film would have ended after the first sex scene.

** The guys [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext playing ''football'' in ''tuxedos'']]. The scene has no significance to the rest of the movie.

** Since [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything we never actually see Johnny at his]] [[WhatExactlyIsHisJob vaguely defined]] (but supposedly high-paying) job at the bank, some fans have half-seriously suggested that Johnny is really a mentally challenged man who works as a janitor at a bank, and likes to pretend that he's a banker there. In particular, they point to the scene where Johnny claims to have given his bosses advice that saved the bank tons of money, and complains that he didn't get the promotion that his bosses promised him. It's possible that he just struck up a conversation with them while mopping the floors, and convinced himself that he was giving them sound financial advice. Or his bosses might have just patronizingly joked that [[AlmightyJanitor he'd running bank someday]], and he might have [[SarcasmBlind assumed that they were serious]].

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Johnny is a wuss, Lisa is incredibly stupid and / or callous, Mark is a douchebag and an idiot, and Denny has drug problems and a ''very'' creepy relationship with Johnny and Lisa. The writing and acting don't help, either.
