Girl Next Door

I watched the Girl Next Door the other night because sometimes I just want to watch a dumb movie with a good looking girl. But even for a dumb teen movie, it wasn't that funny and it wasn't that titillating. Things happened too easily and just when I thought the movie was going to end, it kept going. I've read that it's an uncredited remake of Risky Business and I can see why they say that since it has basically all of the same plot points, it's just a whole lot more boring.
Although, i have to admit that i was a teenager when i saw Risky Business so that movie may not have as much impact now as it did then. Oddly, the Girl Next Door gets a slightly higher rating in IMDB. (6.8 vs 6.7)
