USA | 99 min | R | HD Projection | Dir. Tommy Wiseau Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored of him and decides to seduce Johnny's best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again. (IMDB) "A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau's misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again." Critic Consensus (Rotten Tomatoes) This event is  intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
