boy_next_doorReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 4/30/15] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: I did enjoy The Boy Next Door. I enjoyed laughing at it.
  • José Arce @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Después de liquidar cinematográficamente a Alex Cross, Rob Cohen regresa con lo que se presenta como un thriller erótico pero que tiene más bien poco de lo uno y de lo otro. Un vehículo para que Jennifer Lopez se siga demostrando deseable a las nuevas generaciones.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Regardless of the glee I felt watching this hot mess of a train wreck, it’s not a good film by any standard.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: This howler of a movie is exactly what you’d expect from the title and its star, a cheesy psychotic stalker thriller which appears to have dropped elements of its plot on the way to the screen.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [A]t least the movie becomes more deserving of derision than of scorn.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘The Boy Next Door’ starts off steamy but gets cooler with every passing minute, and not even the hot bodies of Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman can turn back up the heat.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Absolutely asinine – this improbably overheated wannabe erotic thriller is a new low for J.Lo, evoking ludicrous memories of ‘Gigli.’
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: With nothing psychological about it, “The Boy Next Door” is still a glossy, rudimentary popcorn thriller that pours on just enough entertaining cheese, so at least it’s never a dull one.
  • Nell Minow @ The Movie Mom
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Needlessly rehashed, rudimentary and titillating in tepidness, The Boy Next Store is nothing more than a thin serving of the arbitrary “damsel-in-distress” chick flicks that pop up and serve as throwaway conveyor belt melodramas.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Call the Lifetime Network and tell them one of their made-for-cable women-in-distress movies has escaped to the big screen.
  • Ron Wilkinson @ Monsters and Critics
    • Excerpt: A thrown together collection of hackneyed and screwball soft porn, toilet humor and predictable violence.
