The Girl Next Door

Imagine if “American Pie” and “Risky Business” had a secret love child. That’s what “The Girl Next Door” feels like. It’s a raunchy teen comedy rescued by really charming performances from its leads, Emile Hirsch, who plays a straight A student who lives next door to a porn star, played by Elisha Cuthbert.
When he decides to rescue her from her life of degradation he goes mano-a-mano with a sleazy movie producer (Timothy Olyphant).
How raunchy is it? Well, the advertising slogan was “Matt didn't see her coming...but all his friends have!” Other movies have pushed the envelope more but “The Girl Next Door” feels more lascivious.
