Trivia

Before shooting the sex scene, Tommy mentions Alfred Hitchcock being abusive to his actors on the set of "The Birds". Melanie Griffith, who appears in this film, is the daughter of actress Tippi Hedren, who appeared in "The Birds" and "Marnie" for Hitchock, and who has described that director's behavior as being very possessive and abusive toward her.

Goofs

The rooftop view from Tommy's apartment is looking southwest to downtown Los Angeles (indicating a view from Echo Park) when seen at night. Later in the film when Tommy is on his roof during the day, the background is looking southeast over Hollywood (indicating that his apartment is now located near Runyon Canyon). See more »

An incredible REAL Hollywood MOVIE
8 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Disaster Artist is absolutely incredible. I don't want to go into detail because honestly this is one of those movies that is best seen relatively blind. What I will say is that the performances are great, the chemistry between Tommy and Greg is pitch perfect, and Seth Rogen and the rest of the supporting cast do an excellent job. The tone of the film is absolutely spot on. The last scene of this movie, and what comes after the end card, absolutely blew me away; this film is so much fun. I just saw this movie, and I already want to see it again. I rarely say this, but I can't think of literally anything this movie could've done differently that would've made it better. Everything it set out to do is done incredibly well. I highly, highly recommend this film. 10/10
