Critic Reviews for The Rental
While the performances ensure that the movie is always watchable, the hesitant storytelling makes it far from compelling, a bad trip about a bummer vacation.
It might not make you skip your next weekend trip, but it will make you think twice about where you decide to stay.
Franco builds up a nice sense of dread, throws in some uncomfortable human conflict, stirs it up and lets it all explode.
There may be some existential meaning to The Rental's abrupt, too easy ending. But if you ask me, I think Dave Franco ran out of money, time, and ideas.
While it's easy to see a lot of Franco's influences in The Rental, he still finds a way to make this house his own.
Had the writing been deft enough to properly germinate them, there are seeds of ideas about the toxicity of aspirational real estate and those that indifferently own it that could have possibly have flowered into something worth exploring.
