Johnny is referred to as the Gonk, but regardless of our opinion of his actor, wouldn't his character be closer to Informed Attractiveness?
No, because no one ever claims that Johnny is handsome.
Twice in the movie, Lisa says "You owe me one." Once she says it to Mark, and once to Johnny. No one ever explains what Lisa did for either one of them that they owe her one. Was that supposed to be some kind of catchphrase for her, or what?
In Johnny's case, I think it's supposed to be payback for her lifting his mood with pizza and alcohol after his disappointment at not getting his promotion. In Mark's case...um...it may be because she has wanted to talk to him before, but he has always blown her off because he's "too busy."
What the hell does the 'R' in Chris R stand for?
Tommy Wiseau said it is because Chris-R is a gang-member and wouldn't want to reveal his real name, which makes it strange why he doesn't just go for a pseudonym. It is unlikely Wiseau ever came up with a full surname.
In the scene where they all arrive in tuxes, Denny, Peter and Mark arrive in such quick succession that they must have seen each other coming up to the house - yet they act as if they've all just seen each other upon arriving at the house.
Well, I know there's been times when I've approached a house at the same time as a friend, and called out to him without him noticing me, so we had to enter the house separately. So...maybe they're just all idiots.
Why is the television positioned in such a way that the furniture blocks the view?
No one is ever seen actually watching it in the movie, even couch potato Lisa, so maybe it's just there in case someone wants to catch a game or something.
HOW COULD YOU LOVE HIM?!
Why does Mark act like he's completely innocent after Johnny's suicide? He puts all the blame on Lisa when he's just as guilty, if not more since he was completely capable of telling her to fuck off in the first place.
He was probably overcome with grief.
Plus, are you really expecting someone willing to sleep with his best friend's wife to be willing to take the blame for his best friend's suicide? Especially since he consistently blames his infidelities on Lisa, it's not like it's out of character for him to pass the buck.
Why would Peter even bother hanging out with any of them? In fact, how did they even meet?
Maybe he went to school with Mark? There are a lot of ways this is possible.
