Only James Franco, Dave Franco and Seth Rogen could pull off a hilarious film documenting the world’s greatest bad movie. It turns out The Disaster Artist is everything that fans of Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic The Room were expecting! Here is your chance to win double tickets to an early screening of The Disaster Artist on Thursday 8 February 2018 in Cape Town (V&A) and Johannesburg (Rosebank).

There are bad movies and then there is The Room, the Citizen Kane of bad films, a film so bad, so painful and so inept, it’s unworthy of calling itself a bad movie. It’s almost impossible to comprehend and could possibly pass as an alien experiment (using human beings as their pawns) gone completely wrong. Of course, it made total sense that James Franco (you’ll have’ta look twice to tell Wiseau and Franco apart) would make a film about this disastrous film that holds a special place in the hearts of so many.

Franco has managed to pick up numerous awards for his performance, including a Critics’ Choice award, Detroit Film Critics Society award, a Golden Globe and many others. The film currently holds an approval rating of 92% based on 255 reviews on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.

    HONESTLY! I would love nothing more, than to drag my tired-mom butt all the way to JHB (which I’ve never been at!) and see this damn movie with my hubby. It would be the most amazing date (and surprise) for him, and me! We haven’t had a date since the kid’s day of birth, so this would just blow my mind. I love these guys, and I would love to see JHB, and I’d love to just have one date this year with my hubby, where we can go see a movie on the silver screen like we used to when we were pre-parents. Movies and McDonalds were our way of having dates, so this would be PERFECT!

    P.s. Don’t worry Fort, wasn’t planning on taking the kid with. Hehehe.
