Storyline

This is a serious attempt to look into the lives of three different woman that come together as roommates in New York. Each of them were attempting to step out of their old, abused selves and start new lives. Although they try to support each other's goals, their old lives creep back into their work, relationships, and apartment. They meet abusive men just as before. However, this time, each is affected differently. One falls back into her old ways, one finds her dream, and the third manages to keep an even keel, only to end up looking for two new roommates to start over again. Written by Don

Precursor to Raw Talent
7 November 2008 | by (NYC - Center of The Universe) – See all my reviews

Chuck Vincent is perhaps the first "mainstream" filmmaker to crossover into adult films. When one is able to watch "Roommates" (1981), without having to utilize the ffwd search button, that is the mark of any good adult film. It has above-average acting and storyline, shot entirely on-location in NYC (most romanticized city in TV/film), and fairly arousing sex scenes. This film is on par with any mainstream B-movie. Sidenote: cult fans of "Raw Talent" (1984) will get a kick out of seeing Jerry Butler in what appears to be a precursor to his "Eddie" character. This role seems to have been the basis for his casting in "Raw Talent," right on down to using the same name, "Eddie." Butler once again gives a wacky and unpredictable performance as a struggling actor looking to make the big time.
