Bart Got A Room is an affectionately nuanced comedy of manners whose focus is first love and the navigation of complex relationships.

The sweet, dizzy finale makes up for all the predictability before it.

Hines and Macy get some laughs, but the film itself feels insufficiently developed.

It's an inventive take on a story that we've heard a million times before.

Audience Reviews for Bart Got a Room

William H. Macy movies. What is it about his movies that I just love? He seems to always be in the quirkiest kind of movies that just make me chuckle. I really got a kick out of this movie, and couldnt wait to find out who the heck Bart was...

Typical "teenager on a quest to have sex" movie. Nothing spectacular but still kind of funny.

Bart Got a Room is a harmless, unremarkable movie. It's not excessively funny or surprising, but it's a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half. There are some funny parts, and it leaves you with a bit of a feel-good vibe after it's over. It's different and more heartfelt than your average teen comedy, and that's what makes it worth watching.
