Bart Got a Room Movie Review

Bart Got a Room (2008) stars Steven J. Kaplan as Danny and is another goofy high school teen type of movie; that is about all I have for you. One thing I do for each review is watch the movie about two days before and only go back to it for little details. Doing it this way ensures the review is not written in the heat of the moment and directly shows the staying power of the film.

Even though I am more of a drama and thriller fan, I love a good comedy. I could spit off lines from Superbad and American Pie all day.

Bart Got a Room is about Danny trying to find a prom date with ever increasing urgency when he finds out the biggest dork in school, Bart, got a room for after the prom. His divorced parents are also on the prowl often putting Danny in awkward situations.

The story was bland, the acting was bland, and the filming was bland.

5 out of 10 - Rated PG -13 - Coming in under an hour and twenty minutes this is like a TV special gone wrong. The possibility does remain for this movie to shine; it wasn't until my second viewing that I truly appreciated and liked Napoleon Dynamite. Perhaps I will give it a second look.
