THE BOY NEXT DOOR is Still Looking Hella Cheesy

Please tell me you've seen the commercials for Jennifer Lopez new thriller, THE BOY NEXT DOOR, which pretty much personifies the "it's so bad, it's good" genre. Oh, you'd remember catching it, with classic lines like "It got pretty wet in here" and "I love your mother's cookies." I mean, how could you possibly miss that cheesiness? 

In a nutshell, the film is about an affair gone wrong between Lopez's single mom character and the new hot and crazy fella on the block, played by Ryan Guzman, which apparently ends with him becoming completely obsessive over her. I guess this is trying desperately to put a twist on a villain that is traditionally played by a woman in these types of films. But still, this film looks awful. Read the synopsis:

Jennifer Lopez leads the cast in The Boy Next Door, a psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far. Directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.

I'll let you talk among yourselves about this one. In the meantime, Universal Pictures has released a few new images from the film:


THE BOY NEXT DOOR comes to theaters January 23rd.

First - how many times are they gonna make this movie? It's pretty obvious they're banking on the good looks of their co-stars because GAWD DAM this dude is cute!

Second - I kinda wanna see this. I am ashamed. See First.

Third - This movie will inevitably be terrible. And Jennifer Lopez is creeping on typecasting. If not so already...

This film looks like so much hot garbage, really wish it'd come out so I'd never have to see the trailer again!
