Audience Reviews for Rent Control

It's pretty lame, in all honesty. Melissa Joan Hart is an actress I have watched since her Sabrina days, she is the only reason I bothered with this.
She's not actually a very good actress, so it's her usual hammy persona, subtle as a brick and about as convincing, but I kind of like her enough to forgive it.
Story isn't really for family viewing, though it's marketed that way. Some pretty dark themes here including a woman who's into bondage and a guy who enjoys having sex with a corpse (implied rather than seen).
If you can ignore the over the top acting and cheap production, this is entertaining enough to watch on tv (minus the kids!).
