The Roommate  
Went and saw "The Roommate".  Good, God.  Can you say "Single White Female"?  They ripped off the ENTIRE movie and basically just watered it down to a PG13 rating.

I feel: hungryhungry
I'm listening to: Dateline

I'm so glad I didn't see that. From the trailers I see... (cause they are on tv constantly, even on AIM!) I had a feeling it'd be a rip off of that movie. *sigh* Wish some people would come up with some original things these days.

I wanted to see it cuz I figured it would just be kind of fun, Just a popcorn movie, you know? Plus, I really like the cast. And that was ABOUT it. They even did the thing that SWF did with the puppy, only it was a cute little kitty! Minka Kelly finds this kitten and I'm like, "Oh, I know where this is going..."

I think it was supposed to be like that, actually. It was a more modern Single White Female geared to younger audiences who never would have seen the old movie. I mean, I haven't seen The Roommate yet, but I'm pretty sure that was done on purpose, not just to rip-off the movie.

Normally I can find something good about movies that do that to garner a new audience, but without the sexuality and violence that was in SWF, it didn't have the same feel. It just seemed ridiculous at points. I mean, the theater was LAUGHING. We figured it would be kind of cheesy, but it was just bad. But I still love the casting. And Leighton did a good job at playing it totally crazy.
