MPAA Rated R for language throughout and some sexuality/nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) is shown nude while filming a sex scene. While his penis is covered, it's covered with a small flesh-coloured pouch. He roams the set like this for about one minute.
  • Contains a small amount of nudity
  • Naked male bottom for extended periods of time.
  • Simulated (comical) sex scene, with thrusting. Tommy straddles a woman on the bed with no pants on.
  • Innuendo. Flirting.
  • On a casting for the female lead, Tommy has an actress simulate licking ice cream in an animated way (which the joke is that it looks like they're making her simulate fellatio). One of the actresses (Who ends up getting the part as Lisa) asks Tommy if this is a real movie and Tommy replies saying "I don't shoot porno."
  • Greg's mother briefly leans over to speak to Greg and Tommy in the latter's car, with little cleavage shown from her blouse. However, there is nothing remarked or alluded.

Violence & Gore

  • In the real movie, Tommy's character kills himself. This is seen in the trailer and most likely will be done in a comedic effect.
  • After talking to Greg and Greg's girlfriend, Amber, Tommy is furious and hits a few newspaper stands. This is done for comedy.
  • We briefly see the scene where Tommy's character kills himself in the film; the audience urges him to "do it" while laughing and cheer when he finally pulls the trigger. We also briefly see the image from the film with the blood splattered behind Tommy's corpse.


  • 64 uses of f*ck, 8 of sh*t (including bullsh*t), 4 of b*tch, and 3 of d*mn (one god d*mn).
  • There is strong language throughout. "F**k" and its derivatives are said many times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Greg's casting agent, Iris Burton, is shown smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • During the midnight premiere of The Room, the audience starts to laugh at how bad it is. Because of that, Tommy rushes out of the auditorium and cries. Greg notices this and tells Tommy "Just because people are laughing at the movie, doesn't mean it's awful.".
  • Tommy tells Greg that one night, a driver ran through a red light and crashed into him causing a near-fatal car crash. Tommy had to be in the hospital for several weeks and decided to follow his dreams and become an actor.
