Quick Movie Review: The Girl Next Door (2004)

The reason why I enjoyed this film actually wasn’t because of its humor, but because it was really intriguing. I was so curious the entire time as to how it would unfold. Although it’s not laugh-out-loud funny throughout, it really keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. For a sub-genre that is known for inexpensively shot films, this one was actually really nice to look at and it never made you feel like you were watching a high school comedy about pornography. The acting was pretty impressive–especially Timothy Olyphant. Yeah, the sudden and semi-random change of character for Matthew (Hirsch) seemed a little too convenient and somewhat unbelievable, but if you put that aside, this film was consistent from beginning to end with some cool callbacks.
