With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend— and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

"This movie is seriously funny, surprisingly funny, not funny in a way that you ever decide to laugh, but funny like you couldn’t keep quiet even if you wanted to. The laughs, as they say, keep coming."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and heart-wrenching ode to outsider art, with a baffling story that would be impossible to believe if it weren’t apparently true. James Franco directs the film with sensitivity and painstaking detail, and gives a fantastic performance as one of the worst filmmakers - and one of the most unusual human beings - ever. "
- William Bibbiani, IGN
"It exists less as an adaptation than a love letter to the film, its large community of fans, and crazy dreamers everywhere. "
- Marten Carlson, Consequence of Sound
"Franco, who’s absolutely hysterical as the brooding, deluded Wiseau, leads a parade of familiar faces...delivering a winning, Ed Wood-esque blend of comedy and pathos that could very well earn its own cult status. "
- Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"James Franco is firing on all his creative cylinders in this comic bonanza about Tommy Wiseau, the worst filmmaker of the 21st century. Franco hits a new career peak by making sure his film is as heartfelt as it is hilarious."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Funny -- sometimes brutally -- and surprisingly touching, it works whether you've seen the source material or not, though there are plentiful shout-outs to die-hard fans."
- Sara Stewart, New York Post
"In a kooky yet vulnerable and heartfelt performance, Franco gets right at the heart of what makes Wiseau a true hero - his sheer willingness to try - and that is what makes "The Disaster Artist" work so well."
- Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"A perfect recreation of Wiseau's very imperfect creation, and a celebration of anybody who ever made art - no matter how egregious"
- Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Strikes a giddy, winning balance between hilarity and heart."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
