| A complete mess
This erotic thriller starring Jennifer Lopez is definitely one of the worst movies I have seen in recent history. Some movies can be panned critics and still be somewhat entertaining. This movie is NOT one of them. The acting was horrendous (especially at the end), the plot was absolutely cheesy, and the whole script was pretty much chaos. This film was like a rip-off of movies like Fatal Attraction or American Psycho.

Jennifer Lopez plays Claire, a mother who is dealing with marriage problems and is a teaches English at a high school. Noah, a young man in his late teens, moves next door and befriends her son, Kevin. After having a sexual encounter with her, Noah grows an obsessive relationship with her and begins exhibiting violent behavior such as brutally beating another student and turning Kevin away from his father.

Just about every scene in the movie was predictable. There were no elements of surprise whatsoever, there wasn't even anything remotely scary about it. Most of what we get is nude shots of Jennifer's Lopez's body and gratuitous sex scenes. The acting was so awful that it would make you laugh. The fight scene were unrealistic and looked as if the actors didn't know what they were doing and had to constantly had be directed by the camera man.

I do not recommend this movie to anyone unless they are a die hard Jennifer Lopez fan.
