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

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

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.

More daring than Risky Business and sweeter than American Pie.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

This is a teen comedy, not a weighty contribution to culture. In that light, it's a good deal funnier, more clever and better done than most such offerings.

With a more focused plotline, The Girl Next Door might have surpassed its genre. Still, as far as teen sex films go, this one scores.
