All of us have had terrible roommates. From that girl at camp who has head lice to that roommate in college who listens to Metallica at 1am. We’ve all had them, but none of us has had a roommate quite like Rebecca in The Roommate. Because, quite frankly, she was clinically insane.
But after sitting through an hour and a half of one of the most boring horror movies I’ve ever seen, I realized something. I’d rather be the psychotic one. Because the main character was even more boring. And dating a 28 year old. Let this be a lesson to all: if a guy is 28, and still an undergrad, just walk away. Walk away.
Life Lessons of The Roommate:
1. Always carry bullets.
Various kinds, because you never know when that gun won’t be loaded.
2. One word: parkour.
It’ll come in handy when you’re hanging out of a window.
3. Don’t put a cat in a dryer.
It will die. Just thought you should know.
4. Frat houses aren’t that dirty.
I, for one, refuse to believe this.
5. Talk to your RA.
She might be able to help you out before your roommate tries to kill your ex-boyfriend. Shit gets nasty. Don’t let it escalate.
