** Since Lisa [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor keeps switching between intended sympathy and total bitchiness]], one is left to wonder whether she actually might have legitimate reason to cheat on Johnny with Mark that she hides behind the ForTheEvulz reasoning, or if she's just TheSociopath some other characters accuse her of being, especially since Johnny is the textbook case of a "[[DoggedNiceGuy Nice Guy]]".

* HarsherInHindsight: Many fans and critics alike suspected that [[ManipulativeBitch Lisa]] was reflection of how Tommy Wiseau [[HeManWomanHater viewed women.]] His behavior towards women, on and off the set, in ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist'' all but confirmed this, and with an implied [[FreudianExcuse reason]]: [[spoiler: an unfaithful fiancee that cheated on him several times.]]

* HypeBacklash: Despite it's reputation as [[SoBadItsGood "Best Bad Movie Ever!"]], some people just see it as a plan bad movie with no merit whatsoever.

* HypeBacklash: An extremely convoluted example: the film is ''not'' meant to be enjoyed as a good movie, but rather as one that's [[SoBadItsGood so bad that it's good]], but plenty of viewers just saw a bad movie and nothing more.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Lisa's mother, Claudette. Some view her as TheScrappy for her repetiveness and others tolerate her, because her [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously actress actually gives a shit]].



* TheScrappy: '''LISA'''. Everyone in the movie's annoying due to their bad acting and/or stupidity, but she ''really'' takes the cake. Her annoying, repetitive mother Claudette and idiot not-boyfriend Mark come in very close second.

** Also, the scene where Mark tries to ''kill'' [[RememberTheNewGuy Peter]] but is immediately EasilyForgiven.

** [[VideoGame/TheRoomTheGame The Newgrounds flash game]] gives an extended ending: [[spoiler: Johnny is an incorporeal alien sent to Earth to learn earth customs. When he kills himself, he's merely releasing his alien form to return to the mothership and, provided the player collected all the {{MacGuffin}}s, turns Earth into a giant spoon]].



** 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 be running the bank someday]], and he might have [[SarcasmBlind assumed that they were serious]].
*** But how would Johnny be able to not only pay for a really good-looking car, but also Denny's schooling? It's highly unlikely a job at the bank, janitor or banker, could earn that much.
*** He might be getting disability pension as well and/or got a small loan of 1 million dollars when he was younger.

* 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 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.

* 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.
