Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Only the insane (and insanely violent) climactic showdown, in a burning barn, of all places, finally gives the people what they want. You'll howl, you'll squirm, you'll applaud with disgusted glee – and you'll wish that the rest of the film were that much fun.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Predictable and foolishly unsuspecting characters react in ways that make you want to shake them. But there's an undeniable sense of silly fun in this erotic thriller. The Boy Next Door is an improvement on Lopez's forgettable rom-coms. And while not exactly an inventive story, the movie is a diverting guilty pleasure, laden with eye candy and familiar thrills.

NY Post Full Review
Poor Unintended laughs far, far outnumber intended thrills as Jennifer Lopez — playing the hottest and dumbest high school teacher in America — has a one-night stand with a hunky student, and then wishes she hadn't all the way till the end credits roll in the ludicrously plotted "The Boy Next Door.'"

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 30 moviegoers:
TEENS: The one male rated it "above average." One of the females loved "The Boy Next Door," but the other two felt it was only an "average" movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male loved it as did three of the four females.
ADULTS: The adult reviews are disappointing, but not bad. About half of both the males and females either loved "The Boy Next Door" or enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining half felt it was only an "Average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Equally important is the fact that no males and only one female indicated that they actually disliked this movie. So, your probability of enjoying this movie, at least to some degree, is high.
