What is Imogene (Wiig) to do when she is forced to move back into her mom's (Bening) New Jersey home -- and finds that her room has been rented out by Lee (Criss), the lead singer of a Backstreet Boys cover band? Well, freak out, of course!


'In Her Shoes'

 Worst Roommates


Maggie (Cameron Diaz) and Rose (Toni Collette) never had much in common, but when Maggie can't hold a job, Rose is forced to let her move in. Things were bad enough, but they get even worse when Rose finds her sister in bed with her boyfriend.


'Knocked Up'

 Worst Roommates


Alison (Katherine Heigl) never intended on seeing Ben (Seth Rogen) again after their one-night stand, but after when gets pregnant, she ends up spending a lot of time at his place -- along with his pot-smoking, porn-watching, jobless roommates.

June (Dreama Walker) had big goals when she moved to NYC, including working on Wall Street -- so moving in with con artist Chloe (Krysten Ritter) was probably not the smartest idea. June may have gotten to hang out with James Van Der Beek, but the perks definitely did not outweigh the torment of living with crazy Chloe.


'Baby Mama'

 Worst Roommates


Kate (Tina Fey) was desperate to have a baby, but she made the wrong choice when she hired Angie (Amy Poehler) to be her surrogate. The pair's differences were only magnified when neat Kate takes slobby, junk food junkie Angie into her home.


'Notting Hill'

 Worst Roommates


How did quiet and polite William (Hugh Grant) end up with such an eccentric roommate like Spike (Rhys Ifans)? That is a very good question. Between prancing around in his underwear and butting into the business of William's relationship with Anna (Julia Roberts), who would ever want share a flat with him?


'The Odd Couple'

 Worst Roommates


No matter how many bad pairings have come along since, none of them will ever be able to compare to the mismatched living situation that was the home of Felix (Tony Randall) and Oscar (Jack Klugman). With one being an neat freak and the other being a complete mess, how did they ever make it work?

Felicity (Keri Russell) was excited for a new life when she started college in NYC, but what she never expected was a weirdo goth roommate like Meghan (Amanda Foreman) who would freak her out all the time -- starting with putting her underwear in their dorm fridge.

Annie (Kristin Wiig) had really bad luck with the pair of roommates she decided to move in with. Gil (Matt Lucas) and Brynn (Rebel Wilson) were brother and sister, but they were just a little too close for comfort, which Annie realized when she discovered them in bed together!


'Step Brothers'

 Worst Roommates


Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Dale (John C. Reilly) are middle-aged men who are jobless and still living at home. So when their parents marry each other and the two become roomies, things do not go well at all -- especially when they try to build bunk beds.
