Critic Reviews of "The Disaster Artist"
New York PostDecember 10, 2017
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.
San Diego ReaderDecember 08, 2017
Wiseau also makes a pretty good avatar for Franco himself: a mercurial, relentless performer whose ambition encompasses a thrilling willingness to crash and burn. And it's that identification that makes the comedy work here: Franco kids because he loves.
Detroit NewsDecember 08, 2017
"The Disaster Artist" is a sweet, emotionally engaging tribute to friendship, the movies and the importance of dreams.
St. Louis Post-DispatchDecember 07, 2017
Franco delivers a comedy that's delightfully offbeat. It probably helps if you've actually seen "The Room," but you can safely spare yourself that experience.
NPRDecember 07, 2017
[James] Franco has not just made a really sharp, funny movie about movie making. He's also made a layered and intimate portrait of a friendship with his own brother, Dave Franco.
Arizona RepublicDecember 07, 2017
"The Disaster Artist" is a lot of fun, even if some of it is uncomfortable. And of course it's way better than "The Room."
Cinemaphile.orgDecember 24, 2017
A thoughtful, deeply humorous portrait of a man who wanted to make a movie in spite of the cynicism of others, and did so entirely on his terms - in this case, for far worse results than most.
Alternate EndingDecember 23, 2017
A very trivial and insubstantial character study.
ClarínDecember 21, 2017
Franco feels the same affection and respect for Tommy that the tandem Tim Burton/Johnny Depp have for Ed Wood... [Full review in Spanish]
The Monitor (McAllen, TX)December 20, 2017
The film alternates between embracing the individual viewer and the collective appreciation of bad, bad art, and while we are often laughing uproariously at the audacity of the story unfolding, there are moments of sadness where we fear we shouldn't.
Seven DaysDecember 20, 2017
Anger and self-pity practically bleed off the screen in The Room, but The Disaster Artist only hints at what could have inspired such animus.
CinemixtapeDecember 20, 2017
The movie condenses the complicated Wiseau-Sestero relationship into a broad "two friends take on Hollywood" narrative, robbing the story of so many of its eccentricities.
