Stunningly bad teen sex comedy.

The writing team of "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" crafted it as a satire about conflicting levels of sexual experience among teens, but fail to connect the significance of erotic pleasure to the emotional demands of budding adults.

Cinema Crazed

The few saving graces are the gorgeous Elisha Cuthbert and the fun bad guy turn by Timothy Olyphant.

If it had been a porn film, at least it would've been made by people with some insight into the adult-film milieu, as opposed to people with insight into nothing.

It is a movie full of contradictions that plays like a bad The Sure Thing melded uncomfortably together with an exploitative Risky Business.

What sets the film apart from the competition is its willingness to confront its own subject matter in an honest way.

Essentially Risky Business for the 21st century, and I don't mean that as a compliment.

...an innocuous romp for teenagers.

Esforça-se para parecer 'picante', mas não tem coragem sequer de exibir o corpo de sua protagonista.

...it wants to show us how corrupt and abasing the porn industry is, while at the same time using an abundance of sex and nudity to sell its own product.

The best teen-comedy since American Pie.

"The Girl Next Door" is an adolescent fantasy for bookish boys who must also contend with their hormones. This is their outlet. Let the boy next door dream.

Think of it as a cute little movie about porn, if that's possible.

Una relación amor-odio incisiva en un inicio, que inevitablemente recuerda a la vivida en la inolvidable Risky Business.

What seems to be another wishy-washy teen movie is actually a surprising little number that grabs the attention at the least expected moments.

Rich in cynicism and morally loose, it is nevertheless a fun film if you don't take it seriously.

It is well-acted throughout and the script displays a fair amount of wit, all things considering.

Beautifully sprawling and terrifically funny... it encapsulates the raw, careening energy and mirth of adolescence.

The Girl Next Door might have been another slice of American Pie if it wasn't quite so unsavoury.

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.
