Watch bad movie fan Patton Oswalt and bad movie icon Greg 'The Room' Sestero in a five-second film


Comedian Patton Oswalt has worked with everyone from Steven Soderbergh to Kevin James to a herd of animated rodents. But the previous achievements of the Ratatouille voice actor now, inevitably, look like just an extended warm-up to the main event. Why? Because the comedy website 5 Second Films has just posted its latest offering, which finds Patton co-starring with — wait for it! — Greg Sestero, star of Tommy Wiseau’s infamous so-bad-it’s awesome melodrama The Room. That’s right! It’s Patton and Sestero! Together at last!

This is big news for PopWatch, given our longtime devotion to Wiseau’s demented phantasmagoria, and also presumably for Patton, who has previously lampooned Wiseau and his syntax-mangling in a fake commercial for a company that launders money by investing the cash in terrible movies. (“Do you have monies from things that you should not have done to get the monies?”)

You can check out the Patton-Sestero collab below. And if you don’t like it, take heart in the fact that the sucker is around 1,500 times shorter than some rotten 2011 summer blockbusters we could mention.

    Short and sweet – just the way i like it!

    If you go to the website and watch the new trailer for The Room it claims it’s a “quirky black comedy.”

      Oh hai, Mark!

      Seriously though. If you have the DVD (which is one of my most prized possessions), the case itself is high-comedy:

      The main picture looks like a mugshot. There are grammatical errors in the description on the back.

      Finally (and my personal favorite) the quote on the front (“Experience this quirky new black comedy, it’s a riot”) is attributed to…NO ONE!

        I’m so happy I’m not the only person who owns The Room on DVD (it’s one of my prized possessions as well).
        Anyway, how is your sex life?
