Editorial Reviews

She's cute. She's loyal. She's psychotic. And, unfortunately for college freshman Sara (Minka Kelly) she's The Roommate. When Sara arrives at school, she finds new romance with Stephen (Cam Gigandet) and forms a fast friendship with her roommate Rebecca (Leighton Meester). What begins as camaraderie soon turns creepy, and Sara comes face-to-face with the terrifying realization that her new best friend is obsessive, unbalanced...and maybe even a killer!

Customer Reviews

The acting is terrible, scenes are very predictable.
SassyLady
Because this movie was so bad, so boring and has been done so many times in the past all I could think while watching was why make it again?
Mark Turner
I rented this with a free promo from redbox, so at least I only wasted a bit of my time watching it.

Format: DVD
"The Roommate" is essentially a college-age, low-rent retread of "Single White Female" - the story of a young woman whose life is interrupted by a possessive, deranged individual. But even if "Single White Female" hadn't been made, this movie would still be about as boring and predictable as they get. It's little more than a visual checklist of thriller clichés. Not those fun, stylistic clichés, but the dull and dreary ones, all of which were unoriginal twenty years ago and have long since overstayed their welcome. If you can't figure out where the plot will go as you watch it unfold, you're either lucky, for you've missed all the thrillers I've sat through, or you're remarkably imperceptive. I'll take it as an item of faith that it's the former. I beg you, don't prove me wrong.

In the film, a girl from Iowa named Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) enters her freshman year at the University of Los Angeles, where she hopes to study fashion design. Assigned to share her dorm room is Rebecca Woods (Leighton Meester), born and raised in the affluence of Beverly Hills. At first, they get along swimmingly. But over time, Rebecca's behavior becomes increasingly odd, as if she wanted Sara all to herself. Mostly, it displays itself not through her interactions with Sara, but through her interactions with other people in Sara's life. These include her new boyfriend, Stephen (Cam Gigandet), her friend, Tracy (Alyson Michalka), her fashion mentor, Irene (Danneel Harris), and Professor Roberts (Billy Zane), who teaches design. At Thanksgiving, Rebecca takes Sara to meet her wealthy parents; the mom (Frances Fisher) will eventually ask Sara in private the obvious question, "Is she taking her medication?

Format: DVD
(review for movie, not DVD) Sara wants to be the small town girl that makes it in the big fashion world. she is currently going to school and hopes to make friends as well, and when Rebecca appears everything seems great. Sara has some new people in her life, things to see, fashions to produce. The only thing that seems to be standing adversely to that is the possessiveness she just starts to notice.

In the vein of many a stalking movie, The Roommate makes its debut and has some hits and some misses. The good thing about the movie is that it has some really nice moments where it seems creepy. The roomate does a nice job being creepy and seemingly feared, and the moments seem to creep up and present themselves. From the small reflection of someone wathcing across the way to the moments when fear seems to carry a sharp utensil, there are times when the movie has fun. Sadly, some things detract from that.

One thing in modern movies is the fact that the people seem a little fake. From the coffee houses to the party scene, the people seem like a Gap add. They dress a specific way and look a specifc type and the diversity that life offers seems to stay outside. You also have to buy into the notion that college rooms are big, and that is a hard one for anybody who has seen a dorm. Add to that the arrangements of some of the moments and the spacing and you might be a little wary. Still, these are problems with A LOt of new venues.

If you like this genre offshoot then you will like this. If you do not, then this might not be for you. It is not bloody, does not have nudity in any form, and does not really offer a bleak looking canvas. some of it is mind and mind alone, and the images are left to the watcher. Some like that, however, and I like it enough. I would have given it a 3.5 or so, and the 4 it rounds to seems good. I am glad I saw it, but it would not have hurt to miss it.
I suppose it depends on the person.

Thank you.

Format: DVD
This is just another weird Single White Female movie. I pretty much got what I expected out of it because it was very predictable, and just as formulaic as the rest of the stalker movies from this genre. Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it, it's just that the more and more I kept watching I couldn't help but think that if it wasn't for the "CW" network this movie wouldn't have a cast. Quit frankly, between the girls from Gossip Girl, Hellcats, The Vampire Diaries, and One Tree Hill that makes up 90% of the cast (shows that I happen to love by the way). I mean, Billy Zane is barely in it, and Cam Gigandet is just thrown in for good measure. You know they always have to include the dumb jock/rockstar boyfriend who's just as clueless as the female lead of the movie. That's why I think he was strategically put there for no other purpose, but to be the boyfriend who saves the day at the end. I don't know if anyone else missed it, but he's missing for a nice chunk after they meet in the beginning of the movie. Honestly, I won't weigh my review down with a whole lot about the plot because we've all seen this before in some shape, form, or fashion. I just want to tell you what to expect. If you're looking to kill some time with a fun movie..this is for you! If you are looking for something with substance, depth, originality, plot, and a storyline that keeps you enthralled to the bitter end...keep it moving this isn't your cup of tea!

In the end, my summation is that the movie is fun, but forgettable in every way. I don't see people knocking down the stores just to own this DVD, so they can watch it over and over again. Then again, when you include all the pre-teen viewers who knows.
