my view on roommates
18 September 2004 | by (west midlands uk) – See all my reviews

this was one of the best films that i have ever seen Randy Quaid played the homophobic bigot with such conviction that if you had not seen the end of the film you might have believed it there were times the film made me laugh sometimes it made me cry i had a copy of this film and watched it at least once a week it may not be a feel good film but it is a film that makes you think i would recommend this film to anyone i wish i still had a copy
