THE ROOMMATE (M) ★★ ■
Stars: Minka Kelly, Leighton Meester
Director: Christian E. Christiansen
Available: Wednesday on DVD and BD Every year a host of pretty young things try to make it into the big-time in Hollywood, and every year they choose undemanding projects exactly like this one to do so in. It’s well worn Single White Female territory in which a college chicky babe feels the psychotic wrath of her roommate ( Gossip Girl ’ s Leighton Meester) who takes an unhealthy interest in all aspects of her life. It’ll only work on those who haven’t seen the multitude of better offerings that inspired it.
Extras: ★ ★ Chatty director’s commentary and deleted/ alternate scenes package.
