Jennifer Lopez is once again flexing her acting muscles in a new thriller, The Boy Next Door! the film details the life of Claire Peterson, a teacher currently separated from her husband due to an affair. Claire is determined to move on, but reluctant to truly date. Her loneliness and the flattering attentions of a younger man, Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman) compel her to do the unthinkable with him. For her it was a mistake, for him it is the beginning of an obsession and stalking that will literally leave you breathless!
It goes without saying that J. Lo is one of the most beautiful women to ever walk on Earth. She makes mid-forties look like the new twenties! She and Ryan have a chemistry unlike few crazed cinematic couples you have ever seen. The sex scenes in this film will have you strolling through your phone looking for a friend; or if you’re booed up, you may be in for a night of passion. For a thriller, you will find it quite riveting. Films from this genre are usually predictable (Does anyone recall Beyonce and Idris Elba’s Obsession?), but the twists, turns, and sheer lengths Ryan goes through in his descent into madness to win Claire over are mortifying!
