Random DVD Round-Up 1 - THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR is only interesting because it contains early performances from actors who would later go on to do interesting things: Emile Hirsch, Paul Dano and Timothy Olyphant. Elisha Cushbert however, does what she did in that awful teen slasher flick - pander to teen fantasies in films of dubious quality and sleazy morals.

Hirsh plays a nerdy schoolkid who falls for the girl next door. Turns out she's a porn star. So he, cajoled by his crass buddies, assumes she's easy and takes her to a hotel room, and she, being a classic movie hooker/porn star with a heart of gold, gets offended. The whole plot then grinds on for another interminable hour.


THE GIRL NEXT DOOR was released in 2004 and is available on DVD.
