‘The Boy Next Door’ review: Jennifer Lopez’s studly neighbor turns out to be a psycho in this lazy riff on ‘Fatal Attraction’.

“Honesty is really important,” The Boy Next Door star, 45, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I’m looking for someone who is like-minded and respectful, conscious of someone else’s feelings and loves themselves enough to have a healthy relationship; someone who will allow me to be myself 100 percent completely and will love me for that person.” “I don’t care [about that],” says Lopez, who split from dancer Beau “Casper” Smart last spring. “I think they should have their own life, because the world I have around me can be overwhelming.” “Bringing someone into the kids’ lives is going to be a huge deal,” she says. “I think, ‘Are you good enough for my kids?NEW YORK (AP) – Jennifer Lopez turns heads with her wardrobe choices, from the green Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Golden Globe Awards to the nude sequined bodysuit she wore to perform at the 2011 American Music Awards. She was an executive producer of the film, which was made for less than $4 million. “Wardrobe can get really expensive,” she explained in a recent interview. “With this movie, we didn’t have that luxury. Her soon-to-be ex husband Garrett (John Corbet) is slowly trying to make things work, much to the chagrin of Claire’s best friend (Kristin Chenoweth) who can’t stand him, but to the delight of her son Kevin (Ian Nelson), who misses his dad.

At one point, before things go psychotically bad, studly Noah (Ryan Guzman, who you may recall, or not, from his roles in “Step Up Revolution” and “Step Up All In”) gifts her with a “first edition” of “The Iliad,” whatever that means. When the neighbor’s grandnephew Noah (Ryan Guzman), a surprisingly buff and mature looking nineteen-year-old, moves in he seems like a good role model for Kevin… at first. Noah’s charm offensive, which starts with the fact that he’s moved to town to care for his ailing uncle, includes volunteering as a masculine mentor to Claire’s teenaged son, who comes equipped with standard-issue adolescent awkwardness and an EpiPen. (Cough — Chekhov’s gun — cough). We’ll use my jeans, my shoes, my sweaters.’ A lot of things were mine.” Lopez plays Claire, a recently separated teacher with a teenage son who shares a steamy night with a 19-year-old neighbor (played by Ryan Guzman), who then turns 50 shades of crazy. “The artist in me wants more freedom to do more things as far as stories and movies and acting,” she said. “It’s about finding avenues and ways to do that instead of waiting for people to hire me. (To) know that I can do different kinds of movies.

I don’t know if you noticed, over the years,” she said as Cohen collapsed in laughter at the blatant ex-lover diss. “I go more for essence, for strength, the manliness,” she continued. “The fun, the laughs. Then one Labor Day weekend, with her son off camping, Claire succumbs to Noah’s ab-based charms, and when she regrets the encounter, he goes all Alex Forrest on her. Sexy’s important but I don’t feel like good looking is necessarily sexy.” “I’m going to do my best not to share at your chest,” show host Cohen told her when he caught sight of her racy black outfit. “Are you ever worried that they might come out?” he asked. Watch the whole clip above to see Lopez talk about the ex-lovers in her life and find out which two of her exes like to chat to each other even though she’s no longer involved with either of them. The added complication, of course, is that Noah is a student at the school where Claire teaches, though the script makes it very clear early on that he’s over 18, so things aren’t too icky.

Lopez has never been better than she was in “Selena,” “Out of Sight” and “The Cell.” Director Rob Cohen made “Dragonheart” and “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story” 20-plus years ago, before descending to the depths of last year’s terrible “Alex Cross,” and now this mistake. She’s a strong woman,” Chenoweth said. “There’s power in preparation and so the more I knew each and every shot that (director Rob Cohen) was doing, I could feel confident in what I was doing,” she said. “I was like, ‘I don’t want to do this and I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel comfortable with that.’” Speaking up and saying no is something she’s learned over time, said Lopez, a mother of 6-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony. “There were times I hit the wall early on and you go, ‘OK I can’t do that.’ You don’t know you have limits when you’re young. The lowdown: In this gender-swapped, lazily made take on “Fatal Attraction,” a high school teacher (Jennifer Lopez) has a one-night stand with her much younger neighbor, only to come to regret it when he goes psycho.
