Una manera balurda de mostrar el terror con la repetida victimización ingenua de la mujer. El director utiliza estereotipos y clichés que no nos sensibilizan ante un tema que en estos momentos tiene su responsabilidad histórica y social, como es la Violencia hacia la Mujer por su condición de Género. JLo, a pesar de ser latina -una raza fuerte- siempre acepta papeles de mujer sumisa e ingenua, ¡que desperdicio!
Elizabeth Taylor had "The Driver's Seat". Joan Crawford had "Straight-Jacket". Bette Davis had "Dead Ringer". Jennifer Lopez has "The Boy Next Door". Gloriously bizarre film from every angle, but everybody takes it so serious that it becomes a landmine of camp charms.Or is it? Some moments make me think the film is near meta-parody.
"La poca profundidad de los temas incluidos en la trama (descomposición familiar, la crisis de los 40, etc.) es la razón por la que Cercana obsesión no trasciende su nicho, compuesto en su mayoría por gente que gusta de ver a Jennifer López en poca ropa" http://butacaancha.com/cercana-obsesion-fijacion-enfermiza/
Is it wrong if I chortled when they called his epiPen pouch a "penis purse"? This is a bad movie, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. It has all the elements of a B thriller movie I wanted. And that half a minute of gore at the end with his eyeball was pretty badasss; I just wish they would've ended the movie at that.
Only because of JLo's acting chops was this film even worth the entirely worthless 90 minutes. Not even Ryan Guzman with his shirt off was enticing enough to stay interested in the over-acted role of the obsessed student (essentially, think The Graduate but reversed and more fucked up). If Guzman has much of an acting career past this I'll be shocked, as his character was forced and uninteresting. Not worth it.
This was just.....hilarious. I mean, I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously or anything just a 'sexy thriller' or whatever. Although, A+ for the double entendre; "I love your mothers cookies", "There was a big thunderstorm, a giant downpour" "-Yeah it got pretty wet over here." uhh ma gahd. Plus, sassy J.Lo was also cool. Other than that, it's literally a R rated Lifetime movie.
