“Leave your stupid comments in your pocket.”

Yesterday I hung out with my good pal Tim and was later joined by his lady Alise. Tim and I had been talking about how we hadn’t watched Scott Pilgrim vs. the World since January and kept talking about having a nerd-out day to watch it together, but we’ve both been B I Z Z A Y. I have such a nerd boner for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World — I watched it 3 times in the theater last year, and I bought the DVD the morning it came out. In fact, I walked to Target to buy it before I had class (I used to live within walking distance of a mall). He suggested making it a double feature with The RoomEntertainment Weekly hailed it as “the Citizen Kane of bad movies.” It’s so bad, it’s AWESOME. We ended up watching it twice. Ugh… so hilarious. It’s supposed to be a drama, but the acting is so horrible, the script is weak, and there’s tons of plot holes, BUT IT’S SO AMAZING.

Take a looksie:

Tommy Wisseau, who wrote, directed, and starred in it, said that it’s a black comedy, but you can totally tell it’s trying so hard to be a drama. It was also filmed with both a 35 mm camera and an HD one because he didn’t know the difference… /facepalm.

The Room also has some pretty fantastic dialog. Here are some of my favorite lines:

    • “Leave your stupid comments in your pocket.” – Mark
    • “I feel like I’m sitting on an atomic bomb waiting for it to go off.” – Steven
    • “If you think I’m tired today, wait till you see me tomorrow.” – Claudette
    • Mark: How was work today?
      Johnny: Oh pretty good. We got a new client… at the bank. We make a lot of money.
      Mark: What client?
      Johnny: I can not tell you, it’s confidential.
      Mark: Oh come on. Why not?
      Johnny: No I can’t. Anyway, how is your sex life?
    • “As far as I’m concerned, you can drop off the Earth. That’s a promise.” – Mark

Also, watch this super hilarious clip:

I highly recommend watching The Room! And also Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. <– greatest movie EVER. Okay maybe not ever, but close.

    Oh, hai! I don’t work for them or anything… just a big fan of Mystery Science Theater and now them at Rifftrax and I thought of the riff immediately when I saw your post.
