April 10, 2011
Christiansen's witless, badly acted thriller is a throwback to the early 1990s.
April 8, 2011
A disaster from start to finish.
April 7, 2011
There are some interestingly nasty moments and some chills, but it's predictable and derivative.

This is trash of the tamest variety which elicits a few mild shudders at most.
February 7, 2011
Kelly and Meester hit their marks and look pretty doing it, while supporting players Cam Gigandet, Billy Zane and Aly Michalka fade into the background so blandly that viewers will never remember they were there.
February 7, 2011
The movie is exploitative schlock; both its
 stars -- particularly Meester, who has something, although she herself has 
perhaps not yet figured out what -- deserve better.

June 30, 2013
Instead of attempting to create a unique thriller, the filmmakers chose to make a typical one with bland characters and lackluster twists.
February 15, 2013
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.
December 12, 2011
One dry hump of almost thrills that are incredibly lackluster and void of any sort of suspense or tension.
September 1, 2011
the direction of the film is fraught with problems, and one feels that the promising young cast deserved better than this.
July 14, 2011
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.
June 26, 2011
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.
June 5, 2011
It is as bland as movies get. There's not one single nod or wink to the audience and it never manages to develop even an iota of suspense. What's really weird is its complete reliance on a slick modern rock soundtrack that never seems to stop.

More fun than getting stabbed, at least.

... a Miss Teen "Fatal Attraction" ‒ with baked kitten replacing rabbit stew on the menu.
April 13, 2011
Christainsen chooses a teen-friendly rating over cheap titillation and his uneven tone squanders all the ingredients for a good horror movie completely.
April 9, 2011
Bunk.
April 8, 2011
Elicits snores and guffaws thanks to workmanlike 'shock' moments and obvious twists.
April 8, 2011
The biggest jolt the film can muster comes when the viewer's head hits the back of the chair after nodding off
April 7, 2011
You could spend the entire movie texting your friends and not miss a thing, which I suppose its target audience may consider an asset.
