Anyway, how’s your sex life? A new cinematic event featuring the infamous stars of 2003’s cult-classic The Room is incoming, and it looks glorious. Best F(r)iends stars Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero, the two people most responsible for making The Room such a special experience. The two formed an unlikely friendship as The Room evolved into a bizarre cultural phenomenon in the world of bad movies, and their relationship was chronicled by Sestero in his book The Disaster Artist. And of course the book became a major motion picture starring James Franco as Wiseau.
Best F(r)iends looks suitably bonkers, with clowns, ATM robberies, people on fire, and shootouts. And hopefully not awkward 15 minute sex scenes and random football tossing. The movie is written by Sestero, and early audience reviews indicate that the same ‘so bad it’s good’ vibe prevails. It even references famous lines from The Room, so clearly Sestero knows his audience.
“Just imagine a Hitchcock film setting starring Tommy,” Sestero told EW.
Here’s the official description, with the trailer below:
“When a drifter (Greg Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Tommy Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician’s old habits. But greed, hatred, and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. An expedition across the South West introduces wild and crazy characters through a series of twisted and dark foibles as both men learn a valuable lesson about friendship and loyalty.”
Best F(r)iends Volume One comes out on March 30 & April 2, while Best F(r)iends Volume Two hits theaters on June 1 & June 4. Insert a joke about Lisa tearing the movie apart. You’ll only be able to catch it in 600 theaters nationwide, so click here for ticket information.
