      Ciaran Kerr Film Bunker Best F(r)iends is a project that few will see, but those who do will most likely enjoy it immensely. Sure, it is not Academy Award-worthy emotional storytelling, but the film knows what it's trying to achieve and it succeeds in that. Dec 19, 2018 Full Review Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) A tedious, sluggish connecting of smeared plot points, the story dawdles and dallies. Rated: 1/5 Nov 26, 2018 Full Review Leigh Monson Birth.Movies.Death. From a storytelling perspective the justification for Volume Two to take up its own feature runtime is misguided at best and purposely milking the audience at worst.

      Yash B "Best F(r)iends: Volume 2" continues the bizarre story right where "Volume 1" leaves off. I feel like this movie is a step down that quickly becomes pretty boring and a movie where not a whole lot happens. I think there is some creativity on display, but it's missing what made the first one kind of fun. I never thought I would say this about a movie, but Tommy Wiseau's presence is missing in this one. I feel like he brought a lot of fun and wackiness in the first movie that is almost nonexistent here. Overall, I am glad I checked these movies out, but if I ever went back and watched one again, it would be the first one, simply to enjoy Tommy and Greg interacting again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review MundMoriginal *I just copied my review for Best Friends 1, for this is basically exactly the same quality but just continues the story. Disclaimer: If you like The Room, you'll like this one. If you are confused about why "Oh, Hi Mark!" is funny, than this movie isn't for you, either. I watched this movie with the same friend I watched The Room with, and we both are Wiseau addicts ever since. The first positive thing we've noticed, is a very high production quality. It looks very good, all the way from start to finish. Lighting, settings, mood and atmosphere, composition... everything looks like it's done by a crew who knew what they are doing, and haven't been treated into not caring (yes, I make The Room references here, of course I do!). The soundtrack sounded familiar, it's by Daniel Platzman from Imagine Dragons, that's why it sounded serviceable to the film and better than what you would expect, but it never provided a bed scene level of head banger! I've seen what Tommy did besides The Room, you know, where he was hired to be laughed at, like those Tommy Plays games with that stupid Alien, and it was obvious he did not click with that setup, and the producers just wanted to make fun of him, so the entertainment value was really limited. The joke that Tommy acts badly, isn't something you can or even should drag out into a whole series, unless the whole thing is made in a certain way only Tommy can do (this is hard to explain for me). So, with this movie, they found a solution. The movie is build around Tommy's talents. It is very clear, he is in his element in this one, and the funniest thing is, some of the side characters have trouble letting lose in this weird filming style, they seem way more out of place than Tommy, it's incredible! It is fun to critique aspects of the plot and dialogue while you watch this movie with friends, and even the most dragged out cringe acting scenes, are more enjoyable than anything Disney's Marvel makes these days. The best thing though, is how Greg and Tommy are a 1 in a billion chance to become successful with what they do. To quote Patches the Spider "What is a friend, but a chance encounter?". These guys, meeting in this time, were not only an odd combination of friends, but the weirdest success story in cinema history one can imagine. What are you waiting for? Buy it, watch it! Given that Tommy might be either 60, or 80, we might not get many more great movies with or made by him, so support him, please! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/22/22 Full Review Audience Member Admittedly, Best F(r)iends' first part ended on a decent-enough cliffhanger but it honestly seems like the ending I'd expect more out of a series rather than a low-key film whose main selling point is the return of those two guys from The Room. Seems odd. And yet Volume 2, like with many Part 2s of movies I've seen, is superior to the first part. Tommy Wiseau's performance fits perfectly with his characterisation, legitimately well-executed moments of suspense and an ending that's definitely quite a bit...shall we say...out there. As a whole this Wiseau/Sestero collaboration is a unique achievement that, for its weirder moments, arguably fulfils its purpose as the two-part "epic" that shows there's more to Wiseau than just some commercials from 2000, The Room and his indecipherable accent. It's not "so bad, it's good" but what's wrong with actually being somewhat decent and competent sometimes? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I was very surprised how good the 2nd part was! I couldn't predict itâ(TM)s story line so great job there, it was beautifully shot with class, better soundtrack, very watchable, not something I could stop watching. Seeing him and his cast improving so much is very inspiring. I would not be surprised if his next film is even better. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable only because it is comically bad. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/24/18 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen, and not in a good way a la The Room. It doesn't even feel like the same world as Part I and Wiseau is largely absent from this hackneyed robbery caper. Sestero has the charisma of a stoned Ashton Kutcher and the female lead seems to have no acting ability whatsoever. Through in a creepy "uncle" and you've essentially go the plot of this worthless vanity project. See Part I and leave it at that. (Note: I've heard rumors that Part I and II will be recut into one film. Not sure how this would work since there's basically nothing worthwhile in this chapter.)
