Market Watch. Pinterest Reddit. By Tasneem Balapurwala. Claire Peterson Lopez is an estranged classics teacher with a sickly boy Ian Nelson , who suddenly has a year-old move in next door. Things get hot and heavy fast and before you know it, bam, one night stand. At least for her.
However, Noah a ripped Guzman is not going to make light of the events which include the gifting of a very dubious first edition of Homer's Iliad and imagines a lifetime with her, same age son in tow and all. Obsession takes over and stalker boy tries to blackmail his way in by creepy ways and means, even fracturing the brakes of her husband's car. The eye-popping ending only crystallises what one already knew, don't expect too much. The Boy Next Door was supposed to be Lopez's star comeback vehicle, but the cheese floweth over. The acting department Lopez surprisingly, Guzman, Chenoweth did what was asked of it competently enough, but if the script blame Barbara Curry is flimsy from the get-go, there is only so much one can do.
Of course, the film has enough LOL moments, like the time Noah makes passes at Claire in front of her family or plasters the proof of their liaison in her classroom. The issue is that those are not the ones that director Cohen hoped you would crack at. The cinematography uses shaky cam and dark hue techniques to make you take it seriously, but not to great effect.
The genre is such that you are not exactly reinventing the wheel. The least you can do is not be too predictable, and that's where The Boy Next Door fails. Want stories like this in your inbox?

Micheal Compton. Marisa Carpico. Mostly, [The Boy Next Door] takes a disingenuous road to a conventional destination. Abbie Bernstein. Overall, the low-budgeted The Boy Next Door simply fills in the cheesy blanks with its amateurish jitters. With the baseless Boy added to her film credits it appears that Jenny was never on the block. Frank Ochieng. The Boy Next Door is not a total travesty as Lopez gives it her all and the film is fairly entertaining for all of its nutty character leaps. Aaron Peterson. I kinda dug this movie, and I don't feel the least bit guilty about it.
In a season filled with overpraised Oscar bait and genuinely wretched winter releases, such unfettered abandon is worth celebrating. Top Box Office. More Top Movies Trailers. Certified Fresh Picks. Billions: Season 4.
