Double standards bullshit with Jennifer Lopez as a divorced English teacher who starts perving over her teenage next-door neighbour, but that's fine because he's "hot".
They fuck, he turns psycho and it's Fatal Attraction all over again- for girls. 
As a male, I'm not really expected to enjoy this kind of shit. And that's fine. But is this really the sort of movie the feminists of Hollywood want when they say there's not enough roles for women?
