Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is trash of the tamest variety which elicits a few mild shudders at most."
‑ , Time Out
""The Roommate'' is dumb about psychology and suspense."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Instead of attempting to create a unique thriller, the filmmakers chose to make a typical one with bland characters and lackluster twists."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"the direction of the film is fraught with problems, and one feels that the promising young cast deserved better than this."
‑ James Luxford, The National
"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."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"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."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The Roommate - the umpteenth uncredited remake of 1992's Single White Female - sucks bad, real bad."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"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."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"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."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"More fun than getting stabbed, at least."
‑ Grae Drake, Movies.com
"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.
"
‑ Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine
"We could not possibly care less."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"One dry hump of almost thrills that are incredibly lackluster and void of any sort of suspense or tension."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"... a Miss Teen "Fatal Attraction" ‒ with baked kitten replacing rabbit stew on the menu."
‑ Glenn Lovell, CinemaDope
