This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Poorly developed characters that were all forgettable and a very predictable storyline leave this one with a very bad taste in my mouth.

This is far and away one of the most enjoyable festival films I have ever seen!

Right off the bat, it was funny and entertaining.

I started off disliking 'Bart Got a Room' due to its painfully obvious set up, clichés and predictable storyline where you knew where this was going from the get-go.

Seek this one out, it's a very entertaining film that's sure to please.

A very enjoyable teen comedy .

That doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing though, as long as the journey to that predictable conclusion is an original and entertaining one.

The pace was mostly quick, although there were one or two places it seemed to stall; but overall the use of wide and interesting camera angles, quick cuts, and, again, the snappy music selections (which were not main stream) kept everything moving despite what you'd think of as a fairly shallow overall plot.

It's so predictable that you'll know what's going to happen in every scene after you've watched it for 10 minutes(The worst part is that this is a fact).

" had some thin plot lines here and there, but the overall production was crisp and mostly entertaining.

"Bart Got A Room" is not the most exciting or unpredictable film however, and the closely trimmed scene endings make the movie more boring.

Danny's parents are equally bland and uninteresting.

This film was very enjoyable and I can't wait to see more from writer/director Brian Hecker.

Unfortunately, the film is so subtle/dull overall, that the setting and specific characterization overwhelms the overall story and other elements to a degree.
