The Roommate

Critics Consensus

Devoid of chills, thrills, or even cheap titillation, The Roommate isn't even bad enough to be good.

Critic Reviews for The Roommate

All Critics (85) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (82)

  • Instead of attempting to create a unique thriller, the filmmakers chose to make a typical one with bland characters and lackluster twists.

    June 30, 2013 | Rating: 1.0/5 | Full Review…
  • it's hardly worth sticking around for the routine climax of this toothless thriller just to see the ocular sweets get all chewed up and mangled.

    February 15, 2013 | Rating: .5/5 | Full Review…
  • One dry hump of almost thrills that are incredibly lackluster and void of any sort of suspense or tension.

    December 12, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • the direction of the film is fraught with problems, and one feels that the promising young cast deserved better than this.

    September 1, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A storyline that unimaginatively rehashes countless pivotal elements from other stalker-themed movies means that the whole production is a dull and pointless exercise that twists and turns in precisely the manner you expect it to.

    July 14, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It might be genius compared to Single White Female 2: The Psycho, but know that The Roommate is ultimately about as sensitive as that dtv sequel sounds.

    Frighteningly bad, yet I couldn't tear my eyes away...unlike the way Leighton Meester blithely tears out Aly Michalka's navel ring. Second most uncomfortable shower scene since "Psycho."

    I don't even know where to start with this movie, so all I'm going to say is that this is just so incredibly stupid. Do not watch this.

    Pretty average film. Not very scary, and just a little bit thrilling. Minka and Leighton did pretty good with their roles though. But that's the most the film had going for it.

    This is one of those guilty pleasures - it was a bad movie and a predictable plot, but I couldn't stop watching!
