Could Have Been a Good Movie
25 June 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Texas, the insecure Reno Rizolla (A.J. Buckley) has been living with his girlfriend Holly (Holly Fields) for six months. Reno is jealous but does not want to get married now with Holly that promises to give him a bj only after their marriage. Reno does not accept to have roommates since his last girlfriend betrayed him with his roomie. Reno is unsuccessfully trying to sell a boxing bag that he has invented. Out of the blue, Reno is fired from his job and evicted from his home. However his Uncle Charlie (Shelly Kurtz) unexpectedly dies in Los Angeles and Reno and Holly travel to the City of Angels.

Reno learns that have inherited a mansion and the Mercedes Benz from his uncle, but no money since Charlie had spent his fortune with a stripper. Further, the manor still have five years mortgage loan to be paid. Without any other option, they decide to rent two rooms to pay the debts. The handsome Chad (David Wheir) and the sexy Nicole (Jennifer Lyons) rent the rooms and Reno and Holly become jealous of them. Reno has not patented his boxing bag and soon he discovers that his project has been stolen. He decides to get married with Holly but he needs to travel to Texas to bring their furniture and possessions to LA. But while he is traveling, Chad and Nicole give a party that will change their lives.

"Wild Roomies" is a combination of comedy, romance and drama that has a reasonable beginning, tiresome development and an amoral conclusion that could have saved the story. The marketing and DVD cover seem to be based on "American Pie", but the plot is totally different. Reno is a good character but totally insecure, losing Holly because his insecurity. Even being infatuated by Chad, Holly's attitude is totally unexpected and inconsistent with her character since she is angry with her house trashed by Chad and Nicole's friends and ends in a threesome with them and doing the oral sex she had always refused to Reno. The problem is not relative to a moral or amoral ending, but coherence with the character. Mt vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Se Essa Casa Falasse" ("If This House Could Speak")
