Critic Reviews for The Neighbor

Modine does what he can to sell the flimsy premise, but he's so hamstrung by Eddie O'Flaherty and J.P. Davis' sketchy script -- not to mention by O'Flaherty's clumsy direction -- that it's a losing battle.

Laroque has starred in dozens of these featherweight comedies in France, but this material forces her to new grades of mildness. Even during shouting matches with Modine, her emotional pitch rarely exceeds a middling 25 MPH.

Audience Reviews for The Neighbor

Looks like a tv movie and not all that exciting, but harmless enough viewing and it made a refreshing change to see a slightly older leading lady.
Cast are fine and the premise works reasonably well. Though the woman is not written initially to be likable, she is never so awful that you totally hate her. This is a romantic comedy with a few small laughs. Pretty tame stuff but a slightly older female audience may enjoy this one. I am going to pass my copy to my mum! After the offensive mess that was Grown Ups, this may be just the thing!

Good movie. A little on the funny side, but cute. Interesting cast- Matthew Modine, Michele Laroque, and Meredith Scott Lynn. Worth seeing.
