"It sucks out your mind and replaces it with stupid!"

"And looming over it all: Tommy Wiseau, a colossus of terrible movie making; a mystery to this very day; a man who made such an exquisitely awful movie that countless articles have been written about it AND THIS IS ONE MORE; a man who occasionally tries to hint that this was his intention all along -- to make a "comedy!" He is some sort of twisted marketing genius, and his money may well have come from selling Serbian children's kidneys on the black market. But no, The Room was not an intentional comedy. You cannot fake stuff this bad. It is a relationship melodrama gone unimaginably wrong, and one of the funniest movies you'll ever see."
RiffTrax, via Cracked

"The Room is a phenomenon because it is the perfect storm of incompetency and passion. But it also contains a serious intellectual component. Watching the film is like watching a child throw a temper tantrum all the while deconstructing the language and grammar of mainstream Hollywood cinema. Yet the film isn’t satire; the audience needs to laugh at it and make jokes out of it to turn it into satire... The pleasure of watching The Room comes from interacting with it. It’s like a game. I think most audiences know that the cinema-machine is designed to put us to sleep and fill our heads with ideas and dreams; The Room is the exact opposite of that. It activates the audience and gives them control. It is an intellectual and social EVENT."
—Ross W. Morin, who famously declared the film to be "the Citizen Kane of bad movies"

"The Room is a menagerie of conveniences, contrivances, and cliches. With ridiculous characters whose motivations change every few minutes, sets that look like they belong in a 60's episode of Doctor Who, and writing and dialogue SO bad that it makes crap like Transformers seem like Pulp Fiction in comparison. And you know what? It's fucking glorious!

"So remember kids, if you ever decide to go and watch The Room
…You'll learn that you don't need common sense to enjoy a bad movie. All you need is Tommy Wiseau, a football to play catch with, a framed picture of a spoon and Sexilisa always wanting to have sex with you."
—The ending title cards of the AniMat Watches episode of the film
