Continuity mistake: As the popular kids are speeding past the school security guard, notice the last car a black pick up truck. There are six kids in the back of the truck. In the very next shot you can see there are only two kids in the back. Although one of the kids was crouched in front of the kids that were standing up and might have been obscured from view, the other three were sitting in plain view and have disappeared. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: When Danielle and Matthew are sitting in the diner, she draws a picture on a place mat with crayons and then slides it across the table to him. Later in the movie when Matt hands it back to her at the convention, the drawing is larger. Admittedly, the place mat is also twice as wide as it was in the diner, but it should not be.

Continuity mistake: In the diner scene when Danielle is drawing the picture, it goes from having hair to not having hair, and back between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the Adult Convention when Hugo and Danielle are talking, Kelly lights a cigarette and blows smoke right in between Hugo and Danielle. In the next shot there is no visible sign of this smoke cloud, but when the shot goes back to Kelly, you can see the smoke. (00:53:55)

More quotes from The Girl Next Door

Trivia: In the director's commentary, Luke Greenfield revealed that during the scene where Emile Hirsch is getting a lap dance in the strip club (the scene might have been removed in the theatrical version) they had to put about 4 pillows between Emile Hirsch and the stripper. This was due to the fact that Emile Hirsch was only 17 when the film was made and under child pornography laws he could not have a naked woman touch his body. (00:42:40)
