The Girl Next Door
On Saturday mornings I listen to the Friday night podcast of Cort & Fatboy on KUFO in Portland, OR, for their movie chat. On a recent broadcast, Cort highly recommended the movie The Girl Next Door. On that recommendation, I rented it. On admission of said rental, my daughter said she liked this film as well. Where have I been? This is the story of a young man in his senior year of high school, who falls for a porn star (house sitting next door), and rescues her from her past. It's funny, edgy, sexy, smart, sweet and clever. Add this one to my list of pleasant surprises. Thanks to Cort and Melanie for encouraging me to see this one. "What's the craziest thing you've done lately?"
