Thoughts on How to Kill Your Roommates and Get Away With It
Thoughts – How to Kill Your Roommates and Get Away With It is a dark comedy that will see one person being pushed to their limits by their roommates and deciding to go to dramatic decision to try and solve the problem. This can show just how hard it will be living with a stranger to try and make their dream happen, but will show that some people can’t deal with the problems they are going to be facing. The darkest in the comedy is brilliant, because we get to see how the different ideas are thrown together and how they might not work either. This however does catch up on the movie, because we end up going through this too often, making everything feel repetitive. The performances in the film are strong, showing the natural hatred between the two sides, which will come through strong in the film.
Final Thoughts – How to Kill Your Roommates and Get Away With It is a pitch black comedy.
