The Girl Next Door
Starring Elisha Cuthbert, Emile Hirsch & Timothy "Hi, I'm an acting God, kiss my ass like Baldwin's" Olyphant

Ok, I am a sucker for beautiful mainstream actresses playing porn stars and hapless loser guys getting to fall in love with them. He's a high school loner and she is a porn star! How twisted and fun, right? Actually, yeah it is! The Girl Next Door is one of the most entertaining movies I have seen all year. I love Elisha Cuthbert, (and not just because she is so hot my eyes set aflame,) and Emile Hirsch gives a really charming performance. The movie is dark, yet sweet. Naughty and nice! Sexy and restrained! (This review refers to the freedom of speech, Unrated & Widescreen edition.)
