This movie was amazingly perfect from the beginning to the end. It is my favorite romantic comedy of all time and probably my favorite movie of all time.

Basing it on the 2015 context, I’d say The Girl Next Door was a bad movie. There was a lot of inaccuracy, sexism, and objectification. The storyline was weird, the script was weird...the movie’s REALLY weird. For one, why did Matthew receive a standing ovation after including in his speech that he prioritizes his girlfriend over his future? If Georgetown was as good a university as they made it seem, they’d be critical. And for Danielle to have sex with Matthew at the back of a car for their FIRST TIME? Wouldn’t that have reminded her of pornography scenes? Gah, it’s so wrong on so many levels.

HOWEVER, this was a movie from yeeeaaars ago, and I’m sure people didn’t see much wrong with it then. The movie IS charming, as the actors compensate for most of what it lacks. I don’t regret seeing it; and if the movie’s description interests you, you should watch it!
