Tommy Wiseau has been trying to shake off his accent for years. Is his lack of progress a sign of some sort of disorder (as is occasionally speculated), or is he just really really resistant to critique?

IIRC, Tommy was using the least useful English-learning software program that Sestero had ever heard, though the program wasn't useful in that it had strange sentence structure, not accent (unless Tommy's just not good at replicating an accent he hears)... It might be a disorder, but there's a lot of evidence from Internet research that points to Tommy being Polish, and there are a lot of English pronunciations that Polish people struggle with, so that's either the case, or it doesn't help matters.
