The Disaster Artist: 10 Biggest Book Omissions

The Disaster Artist: 10 Biggest Book Omissions

It highlights what made the movie so beloved along with adding insight to the people behind it.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Greg Sestero - Tommy's co-star in The Room and best friend - in which he describes in vivid detail the freakish experience of both meeting Tommy and working on the infamous The Room.

The Disaster Artist stands out as one of 2017's best films and one of the best pieces of work yet from James Franco, who not only directed the film but also stars as Tommy Wiseau (surely claiming himself a Best Actor nomination come Oscar time). No one knows for sure. Greg convinces Tommy to make his own movie, where he can call all the shots, and Tommy writes arguably the worst movie ever filmed, The Room.

The film adaptation of The Disaster Artist is faithful to the book it is based on and is more about the friendship between Wiseau and Sestero than it is about the making of The Room. Other familiar faces such as Zac Efron, Sharon Stone and Bob Odenkirk provide fun cameos as we see the making of many infamous scenes from the film, including Tommy's water bottle monologue and an awkward love scene that, while played for comic purposes, may give audiences more of James Franco than they bargained for. Franco plays Wiseau as more than just an oddball; he is someone trying to make his dream come true. And this isn't James Franco doing a bad impression for laughs. He slides into the role of Tommy with incredible ease, and by the second act, he absolutely owns the character. There has to be some irony there.

For all its strong points, The Disaster Artist is not ideal.

Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ:CTAS) Just Reported Decreased Shorts
The stock of Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ:CTAS) has "Sector Perform" rating given on Tuesday, December 22 by RBC Capital Markets. After $0.66 actual EPS reported by Abbott Laboratories for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 10.61% EPS growth.

Behind the camera, Seth Rogen plays Sandy, the director of photography who tries to keep the production together despite Tommy's inexperience and incompetence.

The script from Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, based off of Greg Sestero's book, doesn't try to explain why The Room is so bad. As production moves along, you get the feeling that the Lisa character is a stand-in for Greg's girlfriend Amber (Alison Brie), who Tommy feels is stealing Greg away from him. And it does succeed.

The Disaster Artist is a amusing, absurd film that turns the worst movie ever made into something enjoyable. I've seen it twice in my life, and that is two times too many. "I wonder if James invite us for Golden Globe Award.' So there we go".

"The Disaster Artist" is rated R for language throughout and some sexuality/nudity; running time: 103 minutes.
