Summary: The college student Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) travels from Des Moines, Iowa, to Los Angeles to study fashion design. She befriends Tracy Morgan (Aly Michalka) that invites her to a party, where she meets Stephen (Cam Gigandet) and dates him. When Sara returns to her room, she meets her roommate Rebecca Evans (Leighton Meester) and they become friends.
Excerpt: What can I say? I enjoyed this one. The cheesy-ness is great. I personally liked this one a lot. I've watched the blu-ray a few times and I thought the video was really good. I think this movie is for people who like "bad" movies. I think it's entertaining even though they never finish what they started.
Summary: Lacking in suspense, answers, and any enjoyment from its "horror" label it's boasting, The Roommate is easily one of the worst thrillers in recent memory. It provides no backstory or any chemistry from the cast, and manages to drag on for ninety-one minutes. When a movie makes you think a ninety-one minute run time is insufferable, wow is it bad. The Roommate's biggest problem is that it is one big tease.
Summary: I liked this movie a whole lot better when it was called "Single White Female" starring Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh -- however I understand where the creators of this movie wanted to make a slightly-less intense version for the kiddies out there. This movie is humiliatingly bad, though. Sara Matthews (Kelly) gets to college, sets up her stuff and then one of her friends, Tracy (Michalka) steals her away to go to a party.
Excerpt: Single White Female...Only NOT....Yeah, the movie was bad.(Couldn't even get a boob shot..All Horror movies have boobs..haha )..The acting was bad..Everything was bad...The only reason I gave this .5 is because the 2 main chicks are pretty nice to look at....Other than that I'd stay away from this....Seriously....
Excerpt: Disc size: 28.959 GB I'm not going to bother wasting many words on this one. I checked it out thinking it'd be one of those laugh-out-loud bad films, but it wasn't even that. Boring, uneventful, bad acting (by the crazy roommate, mostly) and just a waste of time. Skip it, even if curious. Blu-ray faired better.
Summary: I wanted to go see The Roommate....I was hoping it wasn't a typical, predictable movie. The acting was good...I think it was believable for the most and the actors a up and coming so it was nice to see a new set of faces. As for a new plot,I don't think so. It a pretty predictable movie, there is nothing new or fantastic about the movie. However its good for what it is which is a teen-thriller flick.
G version of Single White Female. Not worth your time

Summary: It's nice when you're presented with a thriller that the majority of people can relate to. Moving off to college, nervous with jitters, and not knowing who your first college roommate might be. You ask yourself questions like, "Will my roommate be clean and neat? Will we get along? Will they respect my property? " It's a role of the dice that doesn't seem too disappointing for most.
Summary: First of all watching this movie made me feel a little old because I didn't know a single actor in it! It also made me think back to my college days and how irresponsible some college kids are. Education is a privilege and an honor and they just want to drink and party. Two young actresses named Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester do a fine job as a real "odd couple" sort of roommates. Kelly is convincing as Sara the "nice" girl.
