About the Movie

Eighteen-year-old Matthew Kidman (Emile Hirsch) is a straight-arrow over-achiever who has never really lived life… until he falls for his new neighbor, the beautiful and seemingly innocent Danielle (Elisha Cuthbert). When Matthew discovers this perfect “girl next door” is a one-time porn star, his sheltered existence begins to spin out of control. Ultimately Danielle helps Matthew emerge from his shell, and discover that sometimes you have to risk everything for the person you love.

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. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

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. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Seems mainly about ripping off 1983's Risky Business without attribution. – Janice Page, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: This funny, surprising gem joins the ranks of Risky Business and Say Anything. – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

I just wanna say, that this is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen-hilarious! And to all you guys out there, thinking that the worst part is that you don't get to see her front, I'M A GIRL. So be careful what you say. Just because this movie brings in porn doesn't give you the right to say you'd like to see girls with no clothes. Go to a stripper club for that, or meet a hooker. But don't say it on here, because nobody really wants to listen. GREAT MOVIE!!
