Audience Reviews for The Boy Next Door

This was on TV and it was actually pretty ok...except that it did make me yell at the TV because people were being so stupid.

Crap. It isn't suspenseful and the heroine is a cold, self-involved, incredibly stupid woman. The mystery isn't that interesting, nor the characters, and no one is credible in their own role. Cory whathisface plays a bad boy, and he emits about as much bad boy vibes as Elmo. Then the police chief isn't convincing, either. Bad casting all around, plus a bad script/story. And of course by the end they tack on a ridiculous romance, which was never even hinted at, or wanted. Overall, this movie sucked.
