A psychological thriller about a deranged college freshman (Leighton Meester) who becomes obsessed with her new roommate (Minka Kelly). -- (C) Sony
Devoid of chills, thrills, or even cheap titillation, The Roommate isn't even bad enough to be good.
This is trash of the tamest variety which elicits a few mild shudders at most.
"The Roommate'' is dumb about psychology and suspense.
Instead of attempting to create a unique thriller, the filmmakers chose to make a typical one with bland characters and lackluster twists.
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.
The Roommate - the umpteenth uncredited remake of 1992's Single White Female - sucks bad, real bad.
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.
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.
We could not possibly care less.
One dry hump of almost thrills that are incredibly lackluster and void of any sort of suspense or tension.
