Critic Reviews for Rent-A-Pal
While [the] methods for trying to find companionship are all decades-old ... the emotions at the core of Rent-A-Pal,/i> don't feel that distant from 2020 and its digital solutions for human connection.
Stevenson's script... is smart in the dialog but wavers in its structure, and could have benefited from a leaner edit before shooting.
Wil Wheaton plays one of the scariest villains of the year in Jon Stevenson's brilliant Rent-A-Pal.
Rent-A-Pal goes full-tilt mayhem in its final act, shattering its carefully calibrated dread in a race to make an already belabored point: that technological advancements are to be questioned, and there is no substitute for human connection.
