These Careful What You Wish For quotes will have you second-guessing yourself before wishing for something.
Careful What You Wish For was released in 2015 as an erotic thriller inspired by the 1981 movie Body Heat.
The movie was directed by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum and starred Isabel Lucas, Nick Jonas, and Kandyse McClure, among other actors.
The movie’s plot follows a young man named Doug Martin who is spending the summer at a lake house with his parents.
Elliot and Lena Harper, a wealthy young couple, move in next door and Doug is immediately attracted to the beautiful young wife.
Doug starts doing odd jobs for the couple so he can spend more time with Lena, and with Elliot constantly away on business, they begin an affair.
Lena lets on that Elliot is extremely jealous and even physically abusive.
When Elliot ends up dead, at first, Doug believes Lena had acted in self-defense, but he quickly learns that he was set up as the scapegoat so that Lena could collect insurance money.
Doug now has to prove his innocence before Lena goes free.
