The Girl Next Door Reviews
Wouldn't recommend watching it with your grand/parents or young kids, but it is a fun film.

The movie borrows heavily from Risky Buisness? Seriously, are you kidding me? The Girl Next door is one of the finest adult comedies that I have seen of late and believe me, the movie has nothing in common with Risky Buisness. This film is extrmely pulpy and it's directed to make it so I believe. This film has earned it's shear watchability from it's outstanding cast, which includes a good performance from Emile Hirsch and the stunning Elisha Cuthbert.
The acting was a bit shit, Elisha Cuthbert may have a pretty face and a hot bod (damn I wish I had a figure like her's), but she seriously cannot act. She's just a blonde Megan Fox that will never land a serious film role. It's sad how looks are more important than talent in Hollywood. How I wish there were more budding Meryl Streeps instead of Megan Fox and Scarlett Johansson types. Rant over! The only note worthy and good actor in the film was Timothy Oliphant, who plays Danielle's nasty ex boyfriend and porn producer, Kelly. Timothy Oliphant's character had more depth than any of the characters. The rest of the characters were a bit one dimensional. However overall, The Girl Next Door isn't a dull watch and has some humorous moments. Despite the bad acting, Elisha Cuthbert and Emile Hirsch kind of make a cute couple. If you find porn offensive and aren't really into cliché films about teenage boys wanting to get laid, then best give this a miss.
