Quick Review: The Roommate (2011)
Why do movies like this even get made? Sure, we get that Hollywood desperately needs money, and that the easiest way to rake a bunch of it in is to make some half-assed garbage like this that's aimed at susceptible Teen audiences, but come on. Can't they at least put some effort into making movies like this decent?

A hot, naive freshman arrives at school straight off the bus from Iowa (or Idaho, or some shit), and is immediately drawn into, and bewildered by, the LA party scene. She meets the sexy sweet guy played by Cam Gigandet (who has a knack lately for being in every shitty movie made), and her creepy new roommate who is equally as hot. Of course, creepy roomie-girl begins to attack and kill everyone around her new Idaho Bestie, because it's worked in other movies before, so why not do the same thing here?

We loved this movie when it was called Single White Female.
The TV show Pretty Little Liars honestly has more suspense in its opening credits than can be found in this entirety of this movie.

Don't look at us like that, you knew what this was.
If you're looking for a shitty re-telling of the 1992 Thriller Single White Female, look no further, because that's exactly what this "movie" is. Mostly bloodless, insipidly plotted and acted, this one isn't even good on a funny level. You know a movie's bad when not even the combined hotness of Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly can save it. Hell, forget save, they couldn't even help this movie out a little bit.

Such a waste of hot chicks.
And speaking of hot chicks...
