The Roommate Movie Reviews are in, as well as the box office numbers for the thriller’s opening weekend. Earning an estimated figure of $15 million, Minka Kelly of Friday Night Lights and Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester play college roommates in this latest flick from director Christian E. Christiansen.

And if you liked Single White Female, BSCReview.Com says that’s exactly what you’ll get when you watch this “tired carbon copy of that movie, and there is nothing original, likable, or even frightening about it.”

Movie reviews also criticized Kelly and Meester’s acting abilities, or lack there of, in the horror film. The low ratings for the actresses could have been due to a less than stellar dialogue or The Roommate’s “scotch tape or crossed fingers approach” to film making. Several sites did however commend the five to ten minute appearance of Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries who played the role of Maria.

And just like the movie, unfortunately the reviews continue to get worse. According to Shockya.Com, the movie “is a massive failure.” Good points were also made when it came to a weak plot, The Roommate “doesn’t bother suggesting the neediness or desire that leads Meester to attach herself to Kelly, stated the A.V. Club.

All in all, a weak storyline, some bad acting and terrible dialogue is the general consensus across the board when it comes to The Roommate movie reviews. Did you catch the thriller in theaters this weekend? Is it as bad as critics say? Give us your personal reviews below and tell us what you think!

    Yeah they’ve been promoting the heck out of this thing on Gossip Girl, it’s creepy how much these two look alike.

    I’m not sure if I will tune in, but it may be worth watching to see if it will be a big flop.
