Unrealistic - Lopez's young one-night stand seems too old for the role. Movie violently depicts psycho attraction where he stops at no end for her attraction.

Good time wasting movie!

Ugh. Was this a high school production!? Absolute nonsense, silly unnatural dialog, and to top it off, nobody in the movie can act! If not for the bigger budget, this would look like a Tommy Wiseau movie.

Answers the question "just how stupid can you be?" ...

Boring and a drag to watch. Lopez movies went downhill after Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner, and Enough. I definitely would not recommend this movie

A new boy moves in next to a high school teacher’s house. Claire has a son and she had just recently divorced her husband. The boy, whose name is Noah and played by Ryan Guzman, slowly becomes very good friends with the high school teacher, whose name is Claire Peterson and played by Jennifer Lopez. However, this friendship may not have been the best one as it progresses into something that is not good for Claire. Noah is not the good, polite young man she may have thought he was, but is more violent and dangerous than she could have ever imagined.

Steamy. Good for a movie filmed in 22 days. From a business perspective, it's a successful movie since only $4M was spent but it grossed >$30M. JLo did a good job with the varying emotions. Not recommended for ages < 16 yrs old because the depicted behavior is illegal in Canada under that age.

What a load. THE BOY NEXT DOOR was embarrassingly lacklustre. I actually feel bad for Jennifer Lopez for being in it. Gone are the days of tasteful thrillers like OUT OF SIGHT for her. THE BOY NEXT DOOR was boring and slow and ridiculously overslathered gunk. I recommend that nobody watch it. You can't get that time back.

Entertaining movie. Reminds me of thrillers such as Fatal Attraction & Obsessed. J-Lo is beautiful of course.

I could swear I saw this movie a couple years ago with Lopez...cant remember the name but its damn near identical ...anyhow, your basic TV movie of the week that has been done to death...if you are NEW to this type of movie then you might enjoy it for what it is.

Claire Peterson: [to Noah] Okay... what's your plan? What do you think? What do you think, we're gonna date? We're gonna go on family vacations together? What do you think, is gonna happen here?
