April Fools- The Room remade without Tommy Wiseau and the unintentional comedy bits!
PLOT: Jonathan is a successful financial accountant in his late 40's getting engaged with his beautiful but gold-digging fiancee Lisa. After an incident with his job comes into play, Jonathan and Lisa's marriage is wrecked when the woman promises to stay by his side; what Jonathan really doesn't know is that Lisa secretly sleeps with Marcus, a gruff football athlete with a cynicism towards love and Jonathan's best friend since college. In the midst of all this, Jonathan's young neighbor Danny has a profound drug addiction and plans to kill the man to steal the money in his accounts in order to pay off his debts. What happens in The Room always stays in The Room until Jonathan discovers all the secrets kept behind his back and falls into in a oblivion of distrust, anger, and violence.
MPAA: Rated R for strong language throughout, brief violent content and graphic sexuality/nudity and drug use.
- We never get to see much of Johnny's personal life as a banker, so him being an accountant and witnessing his downfall should also become a factor to his downfall.
- No sex scenes throughout the movie - only during the scenes with life between Jonathan and Lisa and where Lisa and Marcus end up falling in love.
- There never was much development with Danny, Claudette, Chris-R, and Peter; instead of Danny becoming the creepy kid in the original, he would be a junkie who acts friendly and wants to kill Johnny for money; Claudette is a stuck-up woman who believes that Lisa should stay with someone who is the polar opposite of Jonathan; Christopher Ray is a drug dealer intent on killing Danny if he doesn't give him his money to pay off the debts and drugs; and Peter is Jonathan's long-time psychologist after losing his job in the banking system.
- There was never much meaning to The Room in the original, perhaps some symbolism such as the lighting, color and cinematography that gives the subtlety of rise to fall and the other way around for Lisa and Marcus.
- SPOILER: The final act plays like this: Danny kidnaps Jonathan in his house after discovering his stash of money, only for the plan to backfire when Marcus kills Danny by accident; a distraught Lisa reveals that Danny was her nephew who agreed to go along with her plans to kill Jonathan to run away with Marcus and pay off Danny's debts. Marcus is also distraught by the confusion and betrayal as is Jonathan, who physically attacks the two and Marcus ends up killing Jonathan in order to defend himself. Lisa convinces Marcus to run away with her, but the man cannot bring himself to run nor commit suicide as the police arrive at the house and arrest both Lisa and Marcus, leaving their fates unknown.
