Mary Fiore is San Francisco's most successful supplier of romance and glamor. She knows all the tricks. She knows all the rules. But then she breaks the most important rule of all: she falls in love with the groom.
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.

This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination. The plot is trite, the characters thinly drawn, the dialogue inane and the acting is more wooden than Pinocchio. Clearly it's just a vanity project for Jennifer Lopez.
There are some very strange elements that occur during the movie which lead me to think that perhaps a lot of content was left on the cutting room floor. Heck, if they wanted to create quality I think they should have left the whole movie on the floor! This film bills itself as an erotic thriller...Trust me, there's nothing erotic or thrilling about this film.
All that said though, I almost died of laughter watching this, and for that, I'm giving it two out of ten stars. If you want to have a good laugh, either with friends or by yourself, you could do worse than 'THE BOY NEXT DOOR'.
