Editorial Reviews

Jeff, (Matthew Modine) a businessman and artist, watches as his life begins to unravel after learning his ex-wife is going to marry his best friend. To add to his distress, Christine (Michele Laroque), a feisty real estate developer who lives in the apartment above him, is bound and determined to acquire his apartment. Their unfriendly housing situation results in comedic screaming matches, small fires and lots of slamming doors. But fate has a plan for these two. Attempting to gain entry into his wife s wedding, Jeff agrees to move out on one condition: if Christine agrees to attend his ex-wife s wedding as his date. Happy to get rid of her long-time nemesis, she agrees to attend. But after a slow dance and a kiss at the wedding, Christine begins to rethink her renovation plans and Matthew realizes that Christine might just be the person with whom he can rebuild his life with.

The Neighbor (2007) with michelle laroque and matthew modine is a refreshing quirky romantic comedy with a beautiful mature french leading lady - and she has character lines on her face and is real - none of this hollywood plastic airbrushed perfection. It's so nice to find a movie to watch without the top 5 hollywood stars in. Let's see some fresh foreign faces for a change that give an alternative view on life, love and eternity.

Ok, so not all romantic-comedies have to star the young, sexy stars. How about some middle aged types? Or older like Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. This one exudes plenty of quirkiness, some slapstick, and the typical love-hate relationship.

Matthew Modine plays a bohemian, artist-architect(he's actually a painter in real life), divorcee-dad, who just can't get over his ex. A floor below him, lives a driven, french woman, business developer who wants him out so she can live in peace and add on to her place.

He's a bit of a dork, unruly, irresponsible but passionate on principles. She and her equally uptight fiance are major up and comers, organized and planned for every step of the future. It becomes a battle of noncongruences between the neighbors in the worse and funniest ways. That is until they realize how truly unhappy they both are in their separate, weird worlds.

I like the actors- both in their late 40's; her fiance talks about having kids- better hurry up! If you like younger stars in RC's, seek another flick. The story's fun, the ending satisfying. I can live with middle age romances because, well, that's me! Minimum language, no sex, no nudity, but intended for adults.

I was looking for a movie to watch that was enjoyable, had some charm to it and I found it in this film. I was previously unfamiliar with the acting of Michelle Laroque and she's obviously a very good actress as you see how Christine, the character she portrays, matures and blossoms once she slows down and gets some insight into her neighbor Jeff. Matthew Modine is a combination of funny, charming and somewhat eccentric in his role. I don't like to delve into plots very much when I write a review, as I don't like to spoil things for someone who hasn't seen the film yet. So, if you're looking for a cute romantic comedy that's a little different than most of them and will make you laugh and smile, you may find what you want in this movie!

This was such a great movie! I really wasn't expecting much - it was a friend's choice. But the film has a really great feel to it. Its got a very satisfying quality to it. Matthew Modine is really good in this one. I don't want to spoil the movie, but there are also some really funny moments. I would watch this film again and again.

I enjoyed the play between the characters. It was great to watch them so angry and iritated with each other then the gradual softening between the two.

Matthew Modine's character has a daughter and she's great!

Enjoyed the movie.

If you love women, as I do, you will love this movie. Mathew Modine's neighbor and daughter are delightful, and totally realistic. Michele Laroque is the landlady who's trying to evict Matther Modine. Michele is just the smart and moxy star to fill this role, not unlike Saana Lathan in a similar movie, Something New, both smart, intelligent women near the top of their companies. One especially touching moment in The Neighbor comes when the daughter asks to stay overnight with Michele and the conversation they have is so terrific and touching. You can't go wrong with the 1 1/2 hour movie.

Michelle Laroque is fantastic. I have seen her in a number of French films, and she always radiates elegance, humanity and humor. But to see her pull it off in English was literally jaw-dropping. If you want to see her in one of the funniest French movies of all time, watch Francis Veber's Le Placard (The Closet). If you have any interest in getting a better understanding of a LGBT experience, watch Ma Vie en Rose, an amazing Belgian Movie in which she plays the mom.
