Movie writer chats about the comedy cult classic, 'The Disaster Movie'

In the movie review, film writer Gayle Edmunds chats to Africa about the comedy cult classic, ‘The Disaster Movie’, and the implications of the sexual assault allegations against Franco.

The sexual assault allegations against James Franco seem to have impacted his chance of grabbing the Oscar for best actor.

James Franco stars in the hilarious cult classic called ‘The Disaster Artist’, which is based on how an aspiring actor and his friend made their own movie after being rejected by Hollywood.

Movie writer Gayle Edmunds says that it’s a great shame that Franco has been tainted because the movie is hilarious.

It’s difficult to know whether to see the film, or not see the film.

Edmunds says that it’s a very funny film that is based on one of the worst movies that has ever been made. The movie stars Franco’s brother, sister in-law and one of his close friends, Seth Rogen adds Edmunds.

The interesting thing about the film is that the protagonists were rejected by Hollywood so they made their own movie says Edmunds. She adds that the movie they made was applauding but lived on in a weird way.
