Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The American male hypocrisy toward sexually active women in general -- and porn in particular -- is at the center of the new comedy The Girl Next Door. Unfortunately, instead of being the movie's target, it's the subtext.
Fresh: The movie captures, on the most basic level of tone and attitude, what it feels like to be a teenager, a teenage boy in particular.
Rotten: Seems mainly about ripping off 1983's Risky Business without attribution.
Fresh: This funny, surprising gem joins the ranks of Risky Business and Say Anything.
Funny sexy comedy, NO porn
I can't believe some people say this comedy is porn, these people should get a reality check. Seriously. The Girl Next Door is a very funny comedy about school boys and how they deal with sexual fantasies or to make it shorter: how they grow up. People who call this movie porn also very likely believe in no sex before marriage and only using the missionary postion. *LOL* I don't know what kind of psychological issues these people have but I can tell you for sure that this is NO porn, not even close to it. It is about a (former)porn star but without the body parts close-up, just a few boobs you can see from time to time but I guess most of you saw that already on your own mom when she breast-fed you. *LOL* Seriously: I'm married, 43 years old, have two wonderful kids and I consider myself a conservative. Calling this funny comedy(which of course isn't suitable for people under age 18) porn is absolutely ridiculous. "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", another nice and sexy comedy for adults, is more "porn" if you take in consideration that you can actually really SEE an actor's p...s for a couple of seconds. So get a life dudes, this movie is NO porn but an adult comedy which was great fun to watch with the wife together.
Loved this movie!
I loved this movie. The cast is outstanding, and I couldn't take my eyes off Emile Hirsch the entire movie. He's adorable, gorgeous, and very talented. He was the guy who would've stolen my heart in high school at first glance. It's clear he can carry a movie, as showcased in his starring role in "Into the Wild". Timothy Olyphant is fantastic, as well, as are all the main characters. Anyone can relate to the high school drama in this one, but somehow this movie takes it all to a different level. It's funny, endearing, sexy, and has all the right "gotcha moments" for the ever so smug jocks. Highly recommended.
Watch The Movie Before Criticizing Others Brotha
The movie is surprisingly good. I had the same expectations for this movie as I did for american pies band camp but the girl next door turned out to be a very witty, entertaining, and well written movie. The lucrative title and suggestive theme mask the true beauty of this well made well acted film. Give it a chance.
