An embarrassment on the face of horror

Steve Pulaski, IMDb
24 June 2011
  • 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.

This 'Roommate' Needs to be Evicted

Terry Roehrig II, IMDb
20 May 2011
  • 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.

Good Flick....Not a fantastic Movie

xJags, IMDb
17 February 2011
  • 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

bka0005, IMDb
9 February 2011
  • 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.

Poor Cuddles the cat

dtucker86, IMDb
8 February 2011
  • 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.

Bad

John Smith, IMDb
7 February 2011
  • Summary: Wow this movie is bad. The writing is terrible and the acting is not much better than terrible. If you took any kid in school sat them down and told them to write a scary horror movie that is set on a university/college campus this is pretty much what they would come up with exactly. It is very predictable and you can see the attacks coming a mile away.

Put this in the trash can

iansmom99, IMDb
7 February 2011
  • Summary: I went to see this movie expecting a good thriller, but man was I wrong. The opening comes right out of the blue. Its too fast paced. There is barely any storyline structure or memorable performances. NOT scary. NOT suspenseful. Pathetic and infested with forgettable acting. I can't even recommend this movie for a one night rental. The atmosphere is lifeless. The ending is so last minute thinking. The climax????!!? The climax had no ability to impress me.

A decent thriller...

shaunpiersonx, IMDb
6 February 2011
  • Summary: The Roommate is one of those films, that when you first the trailer, you think to yourself, "This is gonna suck". But only when you actually see the film do you realize that you were only partly wrong. The Roommate's premise is simple enough. A young pretty girl is being stalked and obsessed with by her roommate. The film revolves around Sarah (Minka Kelly) who is on her own, going to college and learning new things.

they told the wrong story! **CONTAINS A FEW SPOILERS! You've BEEN WARNED**

ifwejustbelieved, IMDb
5 February 2011
  • Summary: I realize that today's major cinema generally lacks creativity and innovation and indie is the way to go, but I can't resist a cheap thriller. Once in a great while I will be impressed by a film or at least not be furious I spent ten bucks on it. Unfortunately with "The Roommate" I felt like I'd wasted both my money and my time. The story is unoriginal, but even with recycled plots writers can tell them from new angles.
