The Roommate Reviews
Posted 02.04.11 by reelz
The Roommate is most notable for starring Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, Parenthood's Minka Kelly, and Twilight's Cam Gigandet. It wasn't screened for critics, and in this case it turns out there's a good reason why. It stinks.
"...an all-too-familiar tale of a young woman increasingly terrorized by her psycho roomie."
— Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"...(this) low-rent pic might occupy auds for a weekend, but won't evict Single White Female from its top-floor residence among psycho-roomie cinema."
— Rob Nelson, Variety
"It's a lazy, bloodless, pointless, boring piece of work, lacking even the conviction to deliver a little cheap exploitation."
— Scott Tobias, Onion AV Club
"...in terms of actual suspense, The Roommate telegraphs every dull twist and turn to the point that its harried set pieces feel like parodic recreations of clichéd genre scenarios..."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
