Let’s take a great, trashy premise like Single White Female; cast two attractive actresses; move it to college, where too-strong emotional attachments are a matter of course… then strip it of interesting characters, a script, or the exploitation pleasures of sex and violence (thanks, PG-13!). Welcome to The Roommate. Meanwhile Elliott explains the avant garde use of collage in softcore films, Stuart is utterly baffled by the idea of a pet detective, and Dan reassures his fans that he will always be the sigh guy they know and tolerate.
