So I, of my own volition, watched The Boy Next Door, starring Jennifer Lopez. I can unequivocally say that it is simultaneously the best and worst movie ever. This movie is all sorts of cray, and utterly excruciating to sit through. But like any car accident, you are compelled to watch. The acting is by far the best out of any Lifetime movie, quite possibly only rivaled by Kung Pow: Enter the Fist or Troll 2. It is so horribly written that it makes The Room a cinematic masterpiece. I also realized that the radio ad for the film that featured the brilliant dialogue of J.Lo screaming “Stay away from me!” and Noah (her stalker) responding with “I can’t. I live next door,” actually wasn’t a real exchange from the movie. This was pieced together from individual dialogue lines throughout the movie. Which means someone deliberately thought it would be an amazing idea for these magical words to be the teaser for the film.
I can’t even begin to tell you guys how delightful this movie is.
