Storyline

When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless (or so she thinks) flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.

Garbage
23 January 2015 | by (Athens) – See all my reviews

It's funny though, the movie "The Girl Next Door" is about a beautiful and innocent closet porn star that maybe wants to get out of the business. *This is who men dream they are living next to.*

And "The Boy Next Door" is about a handsome young boy that is obsessed with this lady and goes nuts when she cuts him off because he wants her so bad. *This is who women dream they are living next to.*

Hilarious. People are so dumb. Gotta love em. And that, my friends, is about the only funny or interesting thing you'll find in either of these movies. Enjoy...or don't. I wouldn't waste my time or money if I were you.
