- Okay, in a movie full of Narm, Chris-R's one scene was actually pretty awesome at face value. It helps that his actor has the most competent acting in the movie and is totally believable as a pissed-off drug dealer about to kill Denny. Of course since this is The Room, the awesomeness is quickly replaced by Narm when Johnny and Mark show up.
- Made even more awesome by the fact that Dan Janjigian is not a professional actor and did it as a favour for his roommate.
- And, of course, there is the beauty that is the original take of the Chris-R scene, which is near-universally considered to be better than the rooftop version due to the believable acting from almost everyone involved. Of course, the fact that Dan Janjigan's performance didn't suffer in reshoots counts as a doubly awesome moment because of this.
- In said unused take, Mark yelling “DON’T GO NEAR THAT KID AGAIN!”
- Heck, even with how narmy it is, Johnny and Mark subduing a drug dealer and wrestling his gun out of his hands is pretty impressive.
- Any midnight screening of the movie, since the Audience Participation levels rival The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Want us to prove it?
- When Lisa's mother is interrogating Denny over his dealings with Chris R, Denny finally snaps and screams "You're not my fucking mother!" It's the only time anyone actually stands up to that insufferable woman.
- Peter, in general, for being one of the few characters to possess anything resembling common sense. He gives pretty sound, reasonable advice for the characters to follow, is one of the first to correctly diagnose Lisa as a sociopath, is the only guy not keen on playing football in tuxedos, tells Mark to lay off the drugs, and he's quick to leave the film when things start to get a little too weird.
- In the final scene, after Johnny kills himself, Mark finally grows a spine and tells off Lisa for her appalling behavior.Lisa: I've lost him but I still have you, right? Right?
Mark: (shoves her aside) You don't "have" me!
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Word of God confirms that Claudette makes a full recovery from her breast cancer.
- The main theme. That'd be a good theme for any movie. In a movie this bad, it's outstanding.
- A meta example: Tommy Wiseau somehow managed to raise six million dollars in order to make this film. That takes some determination, all things considered.
- It's less awesome in that he didn't raise it, just had it. He gave Greg Sestero a car for a gift, so he was independently wealthy.
- How many bad movies get praised dramatic movies that chronicle their making? Not a lot, for sure.
- What makes it even better? Wiseau himself loves the film!
