The Girl Next Door

An ambitious high school senior, Matthew (Hirsch), with dreams of a career in politics is overjoyed to discover that his new neighbor, 19-year-old Danielle (Cuthbert), is absolutely beautiful, and they fall in love quickly, head over heels. Their relationship is put to the test, however when he discovers (along with the rest of the town, eventually) that she used to be a... porn star (Olyphant plays her ex-boyfriend; Remar plays a skin flick producer she used to work for).

Continuity mistake: When the guy goes to get in Danielle's car after he strips for her, he opens the door and the window is up; but when he closes the door, the window is down. (00:16:50)
