The Boy Next Door Review


Weak

A cheesy TV movie ramped up with language and violence, this sudsy thriller is far more fun to watch than it should be. With its tepid spin on the plot of Fatal Attraction, the film strains to be a bunny-boiler, but entertains the audience because it's so preposterous that not a single moment is remotely believable. And since the cast refuses to play it straight, camping it up while smirking at the camera, it's enjoyable in all the wrong ways.

Jennifer Lopez stars as Claire, a high school teacher who has recently split from her husband Garrett (John Corbett) and is still getting used to life on her own with teen son Kevin (Ian Nelson). Then the astoundingly hunky 19-year-old Noah (played by 27-year-old Ryan Guzman) moves in next door with his invalid uncle (Jack Wallace) after his parents die in a fiery car crash. Super friendly, Noah quickly begins to help Kevin stand up to the school bullies and pursue the hot girl (Lexi Atkins). But Noah also begins to flirt relentlessly with Claire, and in a moment of neediness she gives in. While she sees this as a mildly transgressive restorative fling, Noah thinks it's true love, and pursues her tenaciously. And when Claire begins to trying to patch things up with Garrett, Noah takes Kevin out for a bit of gun practice.

Despite a tendency to drift into grisly violence, there's nothing edgy here. It's a swirling storm of innuendo and suggestion, with a strong sense of menace that never quite convinces us, even with a couple of gruesome plot points. This may be because the camera clearly loves Lopez so much that we know she's never in danger.

The Boy Next Door Trailer


Life is complicated enough for teacher, Claire (Jennifer Lopez). Her husband, Kevin (Ian Nelson) is having an affair with his secretary and their marriage is close to falling apart entirely. With Kevin barely around, she is left struggling to do some of the work around the house and raise her son. Until the young and fit boy next door, Noah (Ryan Guzman) offers a helping hand. In a moment of weakness, Claire falls for Noah and they being their own affair. But when Claire calls it off, things get thrown way out of proportion. Noah tries to reveal the truth and has himself transferred to her class at school. While trying to tear apart her career, Noah also seems intent on killing Claire's husband. He is far for the quiet boy next door she thought.

Mia Vardalos Reveals Plans For My Big Fat Greek Sequel


Nia Vardalos John Corbett Tom Hanks

This story is about a big, loud, highly public wedding and we’re not even talking about Kim and Kanye. Go figure.

Nia Vardalos
Nia Vardalos has another big fat Greek Story to tell.

In the wake of K&K’s wedding, the minds behind 2002’s breakout hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding pulled a shrewd social media move and announced a sequel in the pipeline. And we know what you’re thinking, but no. This isn’t going to be a loosely-based project by another team entirely, a la Mean Girls 2. The script is once again being written by Nia Vardalos and the screenwriter, now 51, will star alongside 53-year-old John Corbett. Just like old times – mostly. MBFGW2 will be produced by Playtone's Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.
