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!

(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.

2.0 out of 5 stars She Just Wants to Be Your Friend February 4, 2011
"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?

3.0 out of 5 stars LOL May 29, 2011
By G. Chen
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I wanted to watch this because the trailers actually made it look really good. It looked creepy! Plus, some of my favorite actresses are in this. I wasn't going into it with high expectations given the fact that a lot of people gave this bad reviews. For movies of this genre, I lower my standards. Unfortunately, I should have listened. This was pretty much as bad as described. It was a total rip off of Single White Female, only a lot cheesier. There were a couple of moments that could have been creepy, but something was just a little off. Either it was the acting, or casting, or dialogue... Something made the whole thing just not believeable. I felt like the characters didn't behave very logically. It was hard to believe someone so psychotic would be running around campus. I have had my share of bad roommate experiences in college, but this was just too exagerated. The main character should have paid more attention once the first red flag was waved. I feel like this could have been really good, if they had tried harder. Instead, I found myself finding a hard time paying attention to the whole thing. I'm still giving it 3 stars though because I like the actresses Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEEN THERE, DONE THAT May 30, 2011
This could be the shortest review I've ever written. Why? 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?

Long story short the film is about a young woman named Sara (Minka Kelly) who arrives at the University of Los Angeles, goes out with friends to a party and meets a new guy. When she gets back she finds her roommate Rebecca (Leighton Meester) moved in. The two become friends as roommates do but Rebecca takes things a little too far.

Okay she takes them way far. She's a stereotypical nutcase who obsesses way too much about Sara. She threatens anyone who she thinks is getting too close to her. She goes through her things. She attempts to prevent anyone from getting to near her. Sound familiar? If not then you probably never saw SINGLE WHITE FEMALE or even FATAL ATTRACTION. Both have psycho women who feel compelled to do damage to the ones their attracted to.

The worst part of all is that with an attractive cast, all of which are accomplished actors, one would think they'd have a decent script to work with. Instead the film is boring with a capital B. Long drawn out sequences that lead nowhere, scenes that take far too long to pan out and so much filler in the whole film make this one seem like a half hour TV episode stretched out to 91 minutes. Even at that amount of time you feel like the movie takes forever.

You've seen this before. You know how it's going to end. Even if you haven't seen the other movies that this film steals from (and poorly at that) you'll know what's going to happen before the final minutes roll. And that is the sign of a badly made film. A remake or a reworking of a story can be made so that its at least entertaining. This film offers nothing like entertainment. I would love to write a longer piece on this film but then why bother? It truly is an insult to movie goers.
