The Roommate is a totally proficient movie. The best part about it is it's a true B-Movie. So bad it's funny because, gosh-darn it, they're trying. Too many movies are trying to be B-Movie but it doesn't work (cough cough Piranha 3D cough cough) but The Roommate is pure, simple trash. And it has Billy Zane.
Sara is a Jennifer Lopez look-a-like who wants to become a fashion designer (which is the only explanation for all the hats she wears) so of course she enrolls in a 4-year Design course at a university. Fuck Parsons or Central St. Martins. This one has Billy Zane on the faculty.
She does her best pseudo-psycho stalker on Sara which consists of bringing her coffee after class. The amazing thing about this movie is that Rebecca is clearly the sane one. She gets rid of (and by "gets rid" I mean she rips out a slutty girl's belly-button ring, gets a pervert teacher fired and kills her creepy ex-boyfriend, so y'know... it varies) awful people. I mean, good friends with morals are hard to find.
