Critic Reviews for Bart Got a Room
Here's something you don't see every day: a high-school comedy for old poops.
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
The story of high school senior Danny (Steven Kaplan), who's spent a small fortune on the hotel room, limo, and tux for his prom. What he doesn't have is a date because he's torn between taking someone with whom he can become romantically intimate and his best friend Camille (Alia Shawkat). In the meantime, his parents' divorce weighs heavily on his mind. Danny is a good kid who yearns to see his parents (the perky Cheryl Hines and the hilarious William H. Macy as Ernie who has turned to the web in order to find his soul mate) get back together so they can become a real family. ~Spoiler~ I absolutely loved the scene with Ernie, who is so bent on getting Danny a date for the prom that he ditches a date (with a character played by the gorgeous Jennifer Tilly), runs halfway across Hollywood and winds up picking an older and slightly plump prostitute for Danny to take to the big dance.
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.
