Critic Reviews for Room For Rent

All Critics (8)

  • With a supporting cast of local actors - Tom Anniko, John B. Lowe, Ernesto Griffith, Adriana O'Neil among them - the film is a decent quirky comedy that rises above a support-your-local-film-industry rationale to go see it.

  • A quirky comedy with a lot of 'tude mostly in the shape of high school lottery winner Mitch who burned through $3.5 M and wound up in his parents' spare room.

  • The screenplay is a little thin -- it's never quite clear why Mitch remains so thoroughly unemployable -- but the performances are good, with Gelman particularly committed to the cause.

  • It's not a gut-buster, but Room for Rent certainly hits a pleasing, enjoyable comedic sweet spot.

    Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Let's not kid ourselves: this is Little and Gelman's picture all the way.

    Oct 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Atkinson directs from a script that pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock...the way that Gelman interacts with Little, the threats take the film to the next level.
