This film quickly sinks into a lame, ultra-predictable storyline that would never have made it past the made-for-cable-TV editorial commission.

Filme feito para a sessão da tarde, onde bobagens deste tipo são aceitas com mais facilidade.

Typical thriller material detracts from a touching father-son bonding story.

As much excitement as an episode of Family Ties.

This is low-grade Lifetime fodder at best

The movie seems to have been slapped together by an editor with attention-deficit disorder... introduces a new, risible complication with nearly every scene...

Director Harold Becker helms what amounts to be a generic psychological drama that is about as complicated as a same-colored Rubix cube.

Hits one predictable plot point after another until its rather sudden conclusion.

A fog of by-the-numbers clichés, unbelievable coincidences, and blatant theft from Hitchcock.

The real 'disturbance' is not in the home, but in the careers of all involved.

Forget about dramatic tension. Or subtlety and nuance.

It's depressing, but you could swing a soccer mom through a multiplex and hit a half-dozen other American movies as mindless as this one.

Isn't it about time Travolta landed in a good film?

The trailer tells the whole story and the movie telegraphs its punches.

It's dire, unimaginative silliness.

There's very little about this cookie-cutter melodrama to dispel the impression that it is a high-concept TV-movie that somehow got misrouted and wound up on the big screen by mistake.

Mark Ramsey

This is one of the funniest unintentionally funny movies you'll see this year.

Movies like Domestic Disturbance leave me dispirited. There's nothing likable, exciting, or intriguing about them.

It's likely there's going to be some 'viewer disturbance' going on after audiences catch a whiff of this routine and thrill-less suspenser.
