In 2003, an obscure, independent film called The Room opened in Los Angeles movie theaters. It was intended to be a serious melodrama about friendship, love and betrayal; instead, it was shockingly bad. The baffling storyline, the uncomfortably long romantic scenes and the acting made the film a hilarious, cinematic disaster.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

More than a dozen state and national parks have caught on to the #OptOutside movement. They're waiving fees, or offering guided hikes and other enticements to bring people outdoors on Black Friday.

The movement started two years ago, when outdoor gear company REI shut its doors for the day on Black Friday and unveiled the Opt Outside campaign.

After a late breakfast that will probably include some turkey, Carrie Harris of Anchorage said, she and her family plan to steer clear of the shops.
