  • The Girl Next Door (2004)

    I finally had a nice slow Friday night and watched one of my favorites: The Girl Next Door.

    I love this movie, but I love it in a different way that people love it.

    Your main typical audience loves this movie because of Elisha Cuthbert (Yeah, she is a daisy in this movie) and the whole idea of hot girls/porn that was brought up numerous times.

    But have you really watched this movie?

    I love the way Elisha Cuthbert and Emile Hirsch interact on screen. The way they just look at each other and their eyes, it's quite simply a wonderful performance.





    Their eyes give a huge performance. It's the little things that make this movie enjoyable in my opinion.

    When it first came out, people thought that it was just some teen movie about porn and sex. There was some of that, but it wasn't the main idea that the director was going for. It blinded the real meaning, which actually gave people the wrong impression of the film.

    How far would you go for love?

    I don't know, but the movie kinda reflects how we want love to be like in our lives. We want to find that one. Even if he/she is out of our league and people know it, we'll fight for them.

    Anyways, it's been a couple years since I actually sat down and watched it. I recommend watching it. Get the real meaning, and you'll be stunned of how amazing this movie came together, and the message it sent.

    I actually think Emile is a little underated in his ability as an actor. Granted... he was Oscar worthy in that one... but he's a young actor who is only going to get better.

      Yeah I thought he was too. He did a fantastic job playing Matthew.

      But unfortunately, critics didn't take this movie seriously. They brushed it off as another "American Pie" or something, which is the movie didn't get any awards.

          It's actually a REALLY good love story. I agree with you about Hircsh and Cuthbert's eyes. You could literally see the sparks.

            I agree with you both. It's an amazing love story, and really well written and acted out.

            I think older adults wouldn't really like this movie until they actually sat down and watched it, just because of the early stereotype it gets.

            I think that the movie actually helps us relate to the characters in the movie, more so Matthew.

            I mean we've all seen people more popular/riskier peers than us. We've all wanted to be like them.. And we've all seen that 'forrest fire' of a person that we can't keep our eyes off.

            The music also plays a huge role in this movie. The songs picked totally matched the scenes, and the emotion of the characters. Everything from the comical parts, to the romantic/deeper parts.

            On top of being a great love story, this movie really relates to life pretty close.

                I haven't seen this movie in forever but I agree that it isn't a bad movie unlike how some people said it was.
