Love this movie.

I’m 24 and I’ve seen a lot worse movies than this. To all the people who are so sensitive about this crap shut up. Great movie, it’s rated R no s*** this movie isn’t for little kids. Had a great ending, wish they made more movies like they did in the early 2000’s

The Girl Next Door

This movie is great for teens the language isn't as bad as common sense says it is. Your teen already probably knows what a pornstar is and its only really rated R because there are some flashes of a girls boobs and a set up of a adult film but this movie is great for older teens

This title has:

Too much sex
