If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Well let me get the obvious out of the way The Roommate
to a tee but unlike other Sony/screen gem films like Prom night, and stepfather, it does not retain the same name, you could set your watch to the beats that "roommate " has .
THE PLOT :Sara Matthews ( played by Minka Kelly) Goes to college and it one of those only in movie colleges where there little to no classes and you can go and drink at any bar with your freshmen buddies even though you only 18 years old . Anyways after night of drinks ,and Sara goes back to dorm she meet her roommate Rebecca (Leighton Meester),who at first is great roommate, she helps Sara with her hangover, buys coffee and even picks Sara up after a shitting friend leaves her high and dry. Then of course a guy ( Cam Gigandet) get between them and dates Sara .
Then the great new roommate turn from this
Ok maybe not that bad
One Problems with this movie is the "evil' Roommate is actually the most likeable character in this movie for the first 30 minutes, she smart, and loyal friend, only goes nuts when the script goes "oh shit that right she got to be crazy".At least with “Single White female” Jennifer Jason Leigh character is showing signs of problem very early on. Rebecca in this movie early on all you could say she a bit on a loner. Biggest problem of this movie is it not remotely scary, and it be one thing if did not try for the cheap scares ,but the movie does and fail miserably .while the acting is solid, and nice see Billy Zane back, even though it was a useless role. The Roommate add up to the same old stuff like "Obsessed' ,and "Lakeview Terrance" (both made by Sony/screen gems)with a traditional climax but it doesn't even have a fun catfight like in Obsessed.
I give this a Spill rating of Some Ole Bullshit (would be ok film to watch on tv ,but that really it)
My T-Wilk rating is 2/5
Thanks Liam,next time I'll spend more time fixing the errors.
