The Girl Next Door
- Rated NR
Superficial portrait of porn star Stacy Valentine — or maybe it goes as deep as the person — made up of old home movies, school photos, family snapshots, clips from her films, and principally Christine Fugate's fuzzy, dull, nonprurient footage of her: on the set (where she must battle ants during a rear-entry sex scene), at the 1998 Adult Video awards (where she gets shut out in five categories), in the cosmetic surgeon's office for a touch of liposuction and breast reduction (down from her previous double-E augmentation), through all the ups and downs of her on-again-off-again relationship with a fellow porn actor named Julian, or simply blabbing to the camera: "There's more to me than just having sex with me. I mean, there's a lot more." What might it be? And where? Somehow it didn't make it onto the screen. 1999.
