Girl Next Door

From the ads, it seemed like another American Pie, but this is something else.

Most precisely, a remake of Risky Business with better actors. It tries to add more humour, which not always lands, but I liked it. It also tries to make the female lead more human, not just a challenge the protagonist must overcome, and it doesn’t always achieve that either.

The more you analyse it the worst it seems, and some creepy undertones start to emerge. In a nutshell, it’s not the deep analysis of the sex industry and its effects on the bottom rung of the corporate ladder, but it is not simply smut either.

Be on the lookout for the Stormy Daniels cameo1!

It could be brilliant in the hands of more competent film-makers, since the cast was spot on. Ripe for a remake. Call it “Hazardous Enterprise”.

  1. It’s on a poster, but still counts! 


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
