The Girl Next Door wants to be more than a teen sex comedy - it wants to say something, but the narrative is so loose that it has no idea how to make its point.

This is a dishonest, quease-inducing 'comedy' that had me feeling uneasy and then unclean.

In the most cynical manner, this movie smugly attempts to have it both ways. The ultimate conclusion is all the more smarmy for trying not to be.

By the end, even the beautiful Elisha Cuthbert starts to look repulsive.

Risky Business, while cynical and salacious, also had style, charm and heart. The Girl Next Door is just nasty, loud and empty.

This Girl's split personality dooms this coming-of-age yarn

Essentially Risky Business for the 21st century, and I don't mean that as a compliment.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

Risky Business doesn't need a remake, and even if it did, The Girl Next Door is an unoriginal attempt, despite its modern-day spin.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

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.

Elisha Cuthbert makes a huge big-screen splash worthy of Clara Bow or Brigitte Bardot -- almost.

I used to think that there was nothing worse than a bran muffin, but then I saw The Girl Next Door and really found out what 'dry' and 'tasteless' mean.

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

If The Girl Next Door had been released last year, it could have billed itself as the 20th anniversary edition of Risky Business.

... try to do too much, which leads to problems with the movie's tone.

"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.
