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.

Goofs

Noah gives Claire a copy of "The Iliad". Claire gasps that it's a first edition that must have cost a fortune. Noah jokes that it cost a buck at a garage sale. Claire, being a classics teacher, should know that "The Iliad" a 3,000-year-old ancient Greek poem attributed to Homer and was passed down as an oral tradition. The oldest and most complete manuscript dates from the 10th century. The "first edition" given to Claire is hardbound and written in English. See more »

Unoriginal Standard Thriller
16 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

The classic literature teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) lives alone with her teenage son Kevin (Ian Nelson) in a house in the suburb. She is separated from her husband Garrett Peterson (John Corbett) since she has found he had an affair with a coworker in Los Angeles. Garrett wants to have a fresh restart with Claire but she is reluctant and prefers to stay alone. When the handsome nephew of her next door neighbor Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman) loses his parents in a car accident, he moves to the house and befriends Claire and Kevin. Noah seems to be an adorable young man and soon there is a sexual tension between Claire and he and one rainy night they have one night stand. On the next morning, Claire regrets but Noah becomes obsessed for her and shows his real personality.

"The Boy Next Door" is an unoriginal standard thriller with a well- known story. The viewer knows the whole predictable story from the beginning in a common screenplay that probably lays on the shelf of studios para every now and then make a movie. The attraction of "The Boy Next Door" is the hot Jennifer Lopez only; otherwise it would be complete garbage. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Garoto da Casa ao Lado" ("The Boy in the Next Door House")
