The Girl Next Door

 (2004)

The Girl Next Door Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Eighteen-year-old Matthew Kidman is a straight-arrow over-achiever who has never really lived life--until he falls for his beautiful and seemingly innocent neighbor, Danielle. When Matthew discovers that this perfect "girl next door" is a one-time porn star, his sheltered existence begins to spin out of control. Ultimately, Danielle helps Matthew emerge from his shell and discover that sometimes you have to risk everything for the person you love, as he simultaneously helps her rediscover her innocence.

For more about The Girl Next Door and the The Girl Next Door Blu-ray release, see the The Girl Next Door Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

The Girl Next Door Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Girl Next Door hit theaters in April of '04—a mere five years ago—but judging by the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, you might think the film was shot anytime between 1994 and 2000. Simply put, the movie looks older than its years, as it's neither as sharp, clean, nor detailed as you'd expect a post-millennial film—even a modestly budgeted comedy—to be. The film doesn't look bad per se, just dated. The first thing you'll notice is the grain that tends to swarm over not just darker shots, but even some brighter indoor scenes. Now, I'm all for a filmic, cinematic look—if a film was shot on film, I want it to look that way—but even I was distracted by some of the more splotchy, pulsating patches, where grain flickers with bouts of contrast wavering. While there are some punchy hues in the color palette—the vivid purples, pinks, and blues of the strip club and the Adult Film Convention come to mind—most of the film has a dull, slightly washed-out look that could benefit from deeper blacks and a bit of contrast tweaking. Outdoor, daytime scenes fare the best—like when Kelly comes to recruit girls at Matthew's high school—and it's only here that the film takes on a more crisp and modern appearance. Overall clarity is somewhat diminished by the occasionally heavy grain, and you'll notice a few softer-than-usual shots scattered throughout. I hesitate to be too harsh on the transfer—it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the film—but those looking to upgrade from the DVD may want to think twice if they expect a huge leap in picture quality.


The Girl Next Door Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Audio quality proves much better, however, as the film boasts a solid DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track that, while not incredibly active, only makes a few missteps. As this is a fairly talky drama/comedy (I still can't bring myself to use "dramedy."), you'd be correct in assuming there isn't much in the way of surround speaker engagement. Yes, there's some environmental ambience— splashes in the pool, party sounds—and even a few stocky pans and swooshes, but this track is definitely a front-centric affair. There are a handful of muffled and hollow-sounding lines, but most of the dialogue is balanced cleanly in the mix. Where the track really gets to prove itself is in the near-constant use of music. The film has an excellent soundtrack, featuring everyone from Elliott Smith, Mogwai, and N.E.R.D., to Queen, Marvin Gaye, Patti LaBelle, and the iconic intro of The Who's "Baba O'Riley." Bass response is tight and never overpowering, and while the track doesn't display the cleanest high-end, the mix certainly doesn't sound squashed.
