Goofs

At the end of the film, text states that to this day nobody knows how old Wiseau is, where he is from or how he made so much money. In actuality, his naturalization records can be found online that show he was born in Poland on October 3, 1955 and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1984 in San Francisco. According to Sestero, he moved to France before immigrating to the United States and changing his name to Thomas Pierre Wiseau (likely from Tomasz Piotr Wieczorkiewicz or Wieczór). Furthermore, a documentary filmmaker discovered he was born in Poznan, Poland. However, it remains a mystery as Wiseau will not confirm these details, and how he became so wealthy is still not known.


Crazy Credits

There is a scene after the credits where James Franco as Tommy Wiseau has a conversation with Henry, who is played by the real Tommy Wiseau in a cameo.
