The Jennifer Lopez starring erotic thriller “The Boy Next Door” is trailing behind in second place with $15 million. “The Boy Next Door” explores a forbidden attraction that goes 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. Fans of the Latina bombshell are better off spending their hard-earned cash on one of her latest CD’s if review aggregator Tottentomatoes’ consensus for the film is anything to go by. The film only managed to score 12% based on 81 reviews.

The critics consensus reads:

“The Boy Next Door may get a few howls out of fans of stalker thrillers, but for most viewers, it won’t even rise to “so bad it’s good” status.”
