"As a behind-the-scenes life of the sex industry, you get the same fascinating bird's-eye view that Paul Thomas Anderson gave you in Boogie Nights."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The Girl Next Door shows porn star Stacy Valentine's fierce determination to do whatever it takes to succeed in her chosen profession. Director Fugate's accomplishment is to turn this Barbie doll caricature into a fully realized human being."
‑ Beth Accomando, KPBS.org
"Stacy Valentine, a Tulsa housewife turned centerspread and porno movie star, is anything but an ordinary girl."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"A day in the life of Stacy Valentine will take you to the movie set for a DP (double penetration), to the tanning salon, the plastic surgeon for numerous unncessary improvements, and the hypnotherapist."
‑ Marcy Dermansky, About.com
"Intriguing if awkwardly stitched together... Girl doesn't... seem comfortable posing difficult questions but it does offer plenty to shake your head at."

‑ Carlo Cavagna, AboutFilm.com
"A playful, powerful, and very honest portrait of a profession we don't see all that often."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
