** 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.

* BlackHoleSue: Johnny is the very center of the universe. Everyone looks up to him or depends on him in some way. When something bad happens, it's never Johnny's fault.

* CanonSue: Johnny. Throughout the movie, he never actually ''does'' anything, other than have sex, buy some roses, and throw a football around. Everyone else's characters are defined, primarily, by their relationship to Johnny, and he somehow managed to land a major hottie, at least until he [[spoiler: AteHisGun]]. ** Also, barely a scene passes without ''someone'' saying how great Johnny is (with how beautiful Lisa is coming a close second). The man can't even buy flowers without being told how wonderful he is.

** Tommy Wiseau is never going to live down the fact that he actually ''made'' this movie. He seems to have accepted this, though, and doesn't mind how much the internet has made fun of it over the years.

Minor edit on the correct usage of fiancé and fiancée.
** Denny is, supposedly, an intelligent if slightly naive boy about to head off to university but given his actual behaviour - following a couple upstairs and jumping into their bed mid-foreplay, hitting on Johnny's fiance '''and then telling Johnny''', selling drugs when he's the adopted son of a banker - even [[WordOfGod Wiseau himself]] admits the film makes more sense if you assume Denny has quite severe socialization and learning difficulties.

* 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.

* MoralEventHorizon: Any sympathy for Lisa goes down the drain when she decides to [[spoiler:take advantage of her fiancee's suicide so she and Mark can be together]]. Although it's apparently not meant to be seen this way in-universe.

* WhatAnIdiot: Having sex with your fiancé's best friend at your fiancée's birthday party? [[SarcasmMode Good thinking!]] ** Better intimately dance with his best friend while your fiance's ''only a few feet away,'' too!

* 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.

** 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]].

*** When Johnny laughs at Mark's story, it might not be because he thinks it's funny, but because he thinks Mark is making it up, hence him saying "What a story, Mark!" ''TheDisasterArtist'' seems to contradict this interpretation, since Tommy Wiseau had to be told he [[DudeNotFunny shouldn't laugh at domestic abuse.]]

** Well, since [[Literature/FenimoreCoopersLiteraryOffences the movie's humor is pathetic]] ([[DudeNotFunny at best]]), [[FridgeBrilliance it's up to the]] [[Literature/FenimoreCoopersLiteraryOffences pathos to be funny]].

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Johnny, who comes off as creepily obsessive and a douchebag rather than the model husband Tommy Wiseau intended him as. For instance, he laughs at the thought of a woman getting beaten up and going to the hospital (and it's not one of those awkward, WTF "are you serious?" laughs, we think), and later on, while claiming he never hit Lisa, he shoves her onto the couch when she is ready to walk away. This has RealitySubtext as revealed in ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist''. Wiseau actually had to be told by the crew that [[DudeNotFunny domestic abuse wasn't funny]], as he was oblivious as to why he shouldn't laugh, but it stuck because they couldn't get a better take of the scene.
