More Info:
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    This is the rare by-the-numbers studio thriller that at least gets the numbers right.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Plenty of credit is due to Barbara Curry’s deranged script, set in a suburban fantasyland of doofus bullies, junior proms, and middle-class sex fears; it probably isn’t meant to be a Verhoeven satire, but it sure moves like one.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The movie's not built for belief. It's built for dumb, shivery, sexed-up pleasure, and it delivers, albeit somewhat modestly.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Boy's premise reeks of stalker-movie mothballs, and it's too timid to fully dive into the high camp it hints at. Instead, this cookie just crumbles.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    It will also make them laugh. Intentionally or not, director Rob Cohen (“Alex Cross”) has put together the most hilarious camp classic since “White House Down” (2013).

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    It’s unashamedly of the B-movie variety — a quick and easy time-killer.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    For those seeking guilty laughs and shameless camp, The Boy Next Door is the exact right kind of bad movie. It’s full of unintentional laughs, and transcendently unselfconscious.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Mr. Cohen, no stranger to delivering pulp product, employs visual clichés as if they were flash cards; no exposed thigh or made-you-jump reveal goes unexploited.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    It's no surprise The Boy Next Door is junk. What is disappointing is that it's not fun junk. It doesn't even merit a good hate-watching, because the whole thing is so meh.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    It offers January moviegoers some guilty-pleasure thrills and laughs, while falling way short of its potential on both the dramatic and the camp fronts.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    The Boy Next Door has its share of so-bad-they’re-good moments – and details, and chunks of dialogue – but not nearly enough. Mostly, they’re just bad. And it had such potential too, starting with the casting. Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    I wish The Boy Next Door were a different, zingier sort of mediocrity, but whenever it threatens to go the full Zalman King "Two Moon Junction" route, it pulls back and behaves itself and settles for a grindingly predictable series of escalations.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The film is so gleefully ridiculous that you start to suspect the filmmakers were in on the joke and forgot to tell the actors.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Lopez is a gorgeous woman with the same mousy voice she came into the movies with 20 years ago. She’s all about the makeup, the hair, the clothes. She plays the part like someone imitating a TV teacher, from her classroom posture to her delivery.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The Boy Next Door plays best as unintentional comedy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Breathless, uninspired January junk that feels like the iffiest bits of a Lifetime movie and late-night cable schlock slapped together. (And not erotically.)

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    While Lopez carries off the overdone damsel-in-distress schtick somewhat credibly, Guzman fails to step up to the trickier role of her seducer and stalker.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Neither good nor bad, nor campy nor scary enough to be in any way memorable, The Boy Next Door is a lot like our own neighbors, just there. You could make the effort to sneak a peek, but it probably wouldn’t be worth your while.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    The film’s initial formulaic competence gives way to outright preposterousness rather quickly, hinging on idiot-plot character motivations.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    B-movie director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) hasn’t got a clue what to do with so much preposterous pulp fiction, so he wafts between sexy potboiler and psychological thriller with an uneasy lack of grace that brings out the worst in everybody.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's badly directed, poorly edited, and features some of the most unconvincing acting this side of a soup commercial.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's a thriller, if the term can be applied to an inept, perfunctory movie with more laughs than thrills — and it only has a couple laughs. Let's call it an attempted thriller and an inadvertent comedy.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Everyone in The Boy Next Door has to behave like an idiot at least once or twice, just so the movie can keep going. It’s an act of mercy when it finally grinds to a halt.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Thomas Lee

    Why Lopez decided to do this inept, cliche-infested film is anyone’s guess. She may be an actress of limited range, but her work includes solid movies like “Selena” and “Out of Sight.” Unfortunately, Lopez’s resume now includes this stinker. And we’re all the dumber for it.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Unintended laughs far, far outnumber intended thrills.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It’s Fatal Attraction 101.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    The camera regards Guzman's buttocks and Lopez's breasts with an evasion of visual pleasure that could be blamed on the actors' nudity clauses if the entirety of the film didn't resemble a Lifetime movie embarrassed to have found its way to theaters.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    The entire movie feels like a warning for women of any age: if you act on your desires, you will be punished. And there seems to be no greater punishment than having to watch The Boy Next Door.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    The film goes for broke with such a careening lack of inhibition, it definitely ends up in the fun zone.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Props to director Rob Cohen for making a gender-flipped 'Fatal Attraction’. But The Boy Next Door really should be a lot juicier.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The Boy Next Door aspires to be a cautionary tale, but it unspools like an infomercial - with a shockingly gory ending.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Julia Alexander

    The sub-par acting, overdramatic cinematography and horribly predictable shock value of the film makes it all the more difficult to sit through without laughing at the ludicrous production or checking a cellphone to gauge how much torture one is expected to sit through before it finally ends.
