Movie Info

In 1995, Oklahoma housewife Stacy Baker sent a topless photo to Gallery, a men's magazine which printed it in their "Girl Next Door" feature. The photo prompted an invitation from Hustler to pose for a photo spread, which led to an offer to star in a porno movie, and Stacy soon left her husband, headed to Los Angeles, and never looked back. A few years later, she was making up to two thousand dollars for each sex scene she performed on camera. The Girl Next Door examines Stacy Valentine's new

As a behind-the-scenes life of the sex industry, you get the same fascinating bird's-eye view that Paul Thomas Anderson gave you in Boogie Nights.

A day in the life of Stacy Valentine will take you to the movie set for a DP (double penetration), to the tanning salon, the plastic surgeon for numerous unncessary improvements, and the hypnotherapist.

The conclusions that cannot be drawn from The Girl Next Door are as thought-provoking as the ones that can--and perhaps more so.

The Girl Next Door shows porn star Stacy Valentine's fierce determination to do whatever it takes to succeed in her chosen profession. Director Fugate's accomplishment is to turn this Barbie doll caricature into a fully realized human being.

Intriguing if awkwardly stitched together... Girl doesn't... seem comfortable posing difficult questions but it does offer plenty to shake your head at.

A playful, powerful, and very honest portrait of a profession we don't see all that often.

Stacy Valentine, a Tulsa housewife turned centerspread and porno movie star, is anything but an ordinary girl.

The most shocking part of the documentary is how Stacy really does seem like the innocent girl next door.

Audience Reviews for The Girl Next Door

Stacy Valentine, a successful porn star, started as an Oklahoma housewife.
This documentary's behind-the-scenes reveals about Stacy Valentine are fascinating, but when Valentine wonders about why she's so depressed and where all her personal, emotional, and professional strife comes from, it becomes evident that she isn't a remarkably deep or intelligent human being. She's interesting because she's hot and willing to fuck in any and every which way people can imagine. She's interesting because she's in an interesting industry (say what you want about porn, but it's at least interesting that people pay money to watch other people do something that is generally considered private). But her context is where her fascinating qualities begin and end.
Overall, there are interesting parts about this documentary, but its central subject can wear on anyone's patience.

Nope, not the film with hotty Elisha Cuthbert but rather a behind the scenes look at Stacy Valentine..a very pretty porn star who ruins herself with plastic work and ends up a disgusting stereotype.
