The film doesn't hold up well against the book, I highly recommend anyone who enjoyed the film but hasn't read it yet at least pick up the the Audiobook read by Greg himself, it's fantastic.

    • Yep, I have a deviantART gallery. But it's pretty cheerful drawings-- no angsty poems or black-and-white photos of wooden chairs.

YEAH! I hate to be a "The Book Was Better Than the Movie" guy, but, it WAS! Buy A LOT! I didn't dislike the movie, but it really wasn't what I thought it would be. I don't think it's gonna be another Ed Wood for me.
I used to have an image here, but Photobucket got cheap about remote linking. I guess I'll have to think of something witty instead. Which I will. Later. It caught me by surprise, in all honesty. It's hard to be clever on command, I mean, YOU try it. Be funny: NOW! See, tough. So, gimme a bit, 'kay?

One weird thing is I'm pretty sure I saw Tommy's Première dates in the Trailer, there's a scene with him with the 2 women on his arms, but they weren't in the film.

See, I never read the book, and I enjoyed the film.  It wasn't perfect, but I didn't have anything to be let down by.  I think the lesson we should all take away from this is: don't read books.  They just ruin movies.

I like to watch movies and then read the books.

I just bought the DVD of the movie.  It says here that Tommy Wiseau does audio commentary (along with Greg Sestero and the Franco brothers).
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.
