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.
In the scene where the Challenger has no brakes and supposedly no clutch, the driver did not simply turn off the ignition. With the engine off, the car would decelerate, albeit not as rapidly as using the brakes. While this could be attributed to an inexperienced driver, the father was present and never suggested doing that. Additionally, even with a clutch failure the engine and transmission speed can be synchronized to downshift. See more »
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.
