A very poor movie that's been done a thousand times before . This is more like a afternoon tv movie
Jennifer lopez plays a woman who gets chatted up by the 20year old next door and has sex with him. they dont have affair there's no real connection its just a one night of sex. but for some odd reason he goes into the predictable psycho stalker type. without even trying to have affair he just starts being odd which even for psychos makes no sense at all.
there's nothing thriller wise about this movie. nothing menacing or believable its all very tv movie tame sillyness.

is it worth watching - the answer is a easy NO. even if it was on tv your wasting your time.
