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.
Jennifer Lopez provided clothes from her own wardrobe for her character, Claire, as a means of keeping the budget down. See more »
The scene when Kevin suffers a severe allergic reaction and Noah retrieves Kevin's Epinephrine injector, shows Noah holding the unit with the safety cap still in position. In addition, the needle extracts while the safety cap is on (which should not be possible) and the needle should not be able to protrude as far out as the scene shows. See more »

A very enjoyable and fun thriller
This fatal attraction type movie was really very entertaining and interesting! First of all, I loved the casting for this movie, Jennifer Lopez did a great job as the lead role, and let's not forget our psychopath, Ryan Guzman, he really played his role well, nice and creepy, with a twisted edge to him. Kristin Chenoweth was very pleasant playing Jennifer Lopez's best friend and co-worker, and in my opinion, just added to the movie, Ian Nelson, who played Jennifer's teenage son was impressive in his role, no complaints here! There were several scenes where I was genuinely creeped out, and on the edge of my seat, which was this movies job, so I feel like it accomplished it's job. There were a couple of interesting twists towards the end that I did enjoy. It had good action sequences and an interesting climax. 8/10 for The Boy Next Door, it was a fun night watching this!
