The Boy Next Door


If you’re hoping for an intense thriller – you won’t find it in this movie!  This movie was “sssooo” clichéd and I knew within 5 minutes of the movie where it was going and how it was going to end.  It seemed like they took several movie plot lines from Disturbia, Fatal Attraction and other movies and jammed them all together to make this laughable movie!  Jennifer Lopez plays a mom with a high school son going through a separation from her husband.  A young, handsome kid moves in next door and they start making googly-eyes at each other.  Well before you know it – Jennifer is making out with him, among other things (and these scenes just make you uncomfortable to watch).  He is instantly in love with her and when she won’t return his affections, he goes berserk and tries to kill her and her family for the rest of the movie.  It was cheesy and horrible and even though they tried to save the movie with sex (because nothing else would save this movie) – it still didn’t work.  I give it an F for failure, farfetched and featherbrained!
