Jennifer Lopez in The Boy Next Door

Jennifer Lopez stars in the new psychological thriller The Boy Next Door. The film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.

Jennifer plays a wife, mother and teacher who is pretty miserable. Her husband, played by John Corbett, cheats on her constantly. When a handsome young man named Noah moves in next door, her life changes. Noah, played by Ryan Guzman (Step Up: Revolution, Pretty Little Liars, is really confident and manages to seduce her. She regrets her actions, and then things get really scary. Kristin Chenoweth plays her concerned neighbor.

Noah refuses to agree to the ending of the affair goes full Fatal Attraction. Her career and her family's safety are in danger from Noah and his obsession with her. Ryan Guzman turns 27 later this month: he looks older than a high school boy. So we have to wonder, is he really even a teenager? How do we know the sad story he tells about his family is even true? Maybe he's a serial killer. That would certainly help with the plot -- after all, teachers having affairs with students is really not okay. On another subject, JLo looks absolutely amazing. And John Corbett seems pretty smarmy.

The film was directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and the screenplay was written by Barbara Curry. The film will be released on January 23, 2015. Here is the trailer:
