The Roommate

2,000 colleges. 8 million roommates. Which one will you get?


The Roommate
I suspect this film is going to be a front-runner for next year's Razzie awards. Based on ''Single White Female'', and set in a college, it is about a pair of female roommates. The one becomes obsessed with protecting the other and keeping her as an exclusive friend. Her passion is so strong that she is prepared to go to any lengths, including murder, to keep that relationship as she thinks it should be. The critics could not care less...

90 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Sex, Violence).
Drama, Thriller.

Adam Nayman quote iconNo scares, no gore, no boobs, no anything: The Roommate plays like a thriller that's already edited itself for airplanes.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconSo, yes, The Roommate — the umpteenth uncredited remake of 1992's Single White Female — sucks bad, real bad.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconFolks, do yourself a favor, save your cash, and veg out to the CW for free. This forgettable thriller warrants only a 1 out of 10.
