Question: How old is Dani? Matthew says they are the same age, but if she is, wouldn't many of the older adults in the movie (Matthew's parents, etc.) expect her to be in school?

Answer: Dani is supposed to be about 19. She would have just finished high school and be ready for college if she was going to go. Many people take a year off before going to college.

Question: How did Dani know that Matthew had found out about her being a porn star? I realize that it might seem obvious from him trying to get her drunk and taking her to a hotel, but lots of guys could try that without thinking that she was in porn movies.

Answer: From his blatant change in behavior. He goes from wanting to have fun and talking with her to being nervous, trying to get her drunk, and bringing her to a motel room.

Question: What was the point of the police officer being in a crash at the beginning of the film. I didn't really see the point of it as it didn't play any part in the storyline.

Answer: While it doesn't have anything to do with the overall plot, the crash shows just how much Matthew is afraid to do the wrong thing and perhaps how he overthinks things. As we know all he would be doing is missing a bit of school by getting in his car and driving from the school. The fact that Matthew is able to imagine an horrific crash of a security guard because of just skipping school shows how worried he is about doing the wrong thing.

Question: The parent-to-child mini-movie, was that a real film or was it specially made for this one?

Answer: It is an actual sex education film titled "Parent to Child About Sex" by The Film Library Department of Human Resources.

Continuity mistake: When the guy goes to get in Danielle's car after he strips for her, he opens the door and the window is up; but when he closes the door, the window is down. (00:16:50)

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)
