When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless (or so she thinks) flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.
Noah brings Claire a copy of The Iliad, which she notes is a "First Edition." Being a story passed down through oral tradition, and not committed to print until it was 1,000 years old, it would not have had a First Edition. Being in the public domain, it could be (and is) published by numerous companies. Being classical literature, however, as opposed to modern, it is doubtful the company would have made much note of it being their own first edition of the text. See more »

My friend and I had a blast at this movie last Friday, but not for the reason you would expect. We literally laughed through the entire film - and what was even more fun was that the entire theater was laughing, too. The dialogue and plot were so thin and badly written, and the intense scenes so implausible, that it was hilarious. As the movie ended, I think all of us sat staring at the screen wondering if that really was the ending - that the credits were about to prove it was all over - that me, my friend, and the entire theater, cracked up all over again.
So, I have absolutely no regrets about paying money to see it. It was fun in its own right.
