The Roommate

We watched this new movie about friendship called The Roommate. It shows what happens when you stop taking Zyprexa. Basically, you become obsessed with someone who kind of looks like you and then you get real violent about it. It’s pretty funny. The ending could have been written by RL Stine himself. Not as much awesome dialogue though since RL Stine did not actually write this movie.

The one thing that sucks is that they took out that really great part in the trailer where Leighton Meester caresses the main girl’s hair in her sleep and says “I want to be your only friend”. I hate when they do that. That was one of the main reasons I wanted to see it, as you can see from this photo we took with Leighton before the movie started.

Overall, I think we’re both pretty happy we saw it. However, this bitch needs more than just Zyprexa, that’s for sure.

    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. -Mary Nayman

    It so wrong the way this movie portrays people with bipolar. The roommate is a psychotic sociopathic freak who would NOT be on zyprexa for her condition. She would definitely be treated with something much, much stronger and probably be so zombified by what she was on that she would not even be able to walk or talk-and she would be incredibly fat too since that’s what these kind of meds do. Trust me, I’m a resident at a hospital with a huge psych ward. This movie really portrays mental illness in a poor way.
