As much as I love Jennifer Lopez in all her various ventures, every time I see her in “The Boy Next Door” trailer or stills, all I can think is, there’s no way she’d ever put up with that crap. That boy would be toast.
But I do love a good psychological thriller, so I’m looking forward to seeing her on the big screen again. The story follows a forbidden attraction by, who else, a boy next door, that goes way, way too far. Kind of a “Fatal Attraction,” only with Ryan Guzman playing the Glenn Close part.
Directed by Rob Cohen (“The Fast and the Furious”) and written by Barbara Curry, the Universal Pictures film also stars John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth. Jennifer Lopez is one of the producers. “The Boy Next Door” opens in theaters Jan. 23, 2015.
