Far back in the mists of 2009, Fox bought the rights to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta novels, with an eye on a movie franchise.

“Oh my God, He’s threatened my life, my son, my job!”
The unusually stupid The Boy Next Door was a ‘bunnyboiler’, a Fatal Attraction-inspired thriller that taught a valuable lesson about the dangers of hooking up with nutjobs. Jennifer Lopez played Claire Peterson, a 40-ish teacher living with her 16-year old son Kevin (Ian Nelson) after kicking out her cheating husband (John Corbett). Her foray back to the dating scene is a disaster so she soon turns her attentions to Noah (Ryan Guzman) a hunky 19-year old who has moved in with his ailing Grandpa next door (and whose biceps are introduced before he his). At first Noah is a perfect gentleman. He repairs her garage door, replaces her alternator, and helps Kevin, who’s being bullied at school, gain the confidence to ask out the cutie that works at the local hardware store. After pie and flirting and cookies, »

Claudia Puig at USA Today, gave it a 63 score, stating: "Predictable and foolishly unsuspecting characters react in ways that make you want to shake them. But there's an undeniable sense of silly fun in this erotic thriller." Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 58 grade. He said: "Boy's premise reeks of stalker-movie mothballs, and it's too timid to fully dive into the high camp it hints at. Instead, this cookie just crumbles. »

The film mostly focuses on Lopez herself — a decision that robs it of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes an erotic thriller...
In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »

Nineteen-year-old Noah (played by 27-year-old Ryan Guzman) has moved in next door to Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez), apparently to care for his shockingly decrepit looking uncle who's in need of a bone marrow transplant. After fixing Claire's garage door, befriending her son and proclaiming his love for the "classics" (Claire teaches classic literature at the local high school), he eventually, and rather forcefully, woos Claire into having sex with him. You see, Claire is vulnerable, her husband cheated on her and now she can't decide whether or not she's going to go back to him or just screw all the local teenagers. After her first dip in the teenage pool it seems she's decided that's a bad idea, but Noah isn't too keen on letting her go that easily. "Let the games begin," he tells her before peeling off in his truck. Oh, let them begin indeed! Directed by Rob Cohen, »

In October 2012, Alex Cross was promoted by the full faith an effort of Summit Entertainment as a would-be hit. Before the film was even released, Double Crossed, another book in James Patterson’s detective series, had been greenlit to follow shortly after, making Alex Cross the inaugural entry in a franchise organized around Tyler Perry as the titular character. But Alex Cross grossed only $25 million against a modest $35 million budget, and was subject to blisteringly poor reviews that called out the film’s ineptitude and its miscasting of Perry. Eric Hynes of The Village Voice deemed Alex Cross “a strong candidate for the dumbest film of the year.” The highly visible critical and financial failure of the film effectively put to rest any plans to franchise the series. Filmmaker Rob Cohen’s helming of Alex Cross was labeled “inept,” and its poor performance effectively prevented its studio from its franchising goals. In »
