What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Boy Next Door is a thriller about a deceptively charming stranger who turns into a manipulative, homicidal stalker. It has two fairly graphic sex scenes that include partial nudity (breasts, bottoms), thrusting, the implication of oral sex, and more. There's some innuendo, skimpy nightwear, and general ogling, too. Violence escalates in the final act, with a bloody, gruesome beating and killing (a bloody corpse is seen), characters being tied up and tormented, and the rough treatment of women, including an attempted rape. There's also some bullying. Language isn't constant but is peppered with words including "f--k," "s--t," and "p---y." The movie is quite awful, but Jennifer Lopez fans may want to see it.
