Dark, suspenseful thriller has mature themes, profanity.

A refreshingly unpretentious little thriller.

While there's nothing groundbreaking about this old-school family suspenser, director Harold Becker (City Hall) works a series of can't-miss elements with sufficient skill to make it succeed on its own humble terms.

What you see is what you get, and what you get is a well-acted, exciting suspense thriller that ties the knot -- er, noose, slowly until its choke-hold climax.
Eric D. Snider

A simple, serviceable, reasonably entertaining thriller, and nothing more.

It's rather fun to be involved by this plotboiler, harder to be convinced.

While it offers good performances from John Travolta, Vince Vaughn and newcomer Matthew O'Leary, it's choked with cliches that prevent it from rising above them.

Although it's formulaic to the hilt, Domestic Disturbance ratchets up the tension like a fine whine.

Domestic Disturbance isn't a great thriller, but it will suffice until one comes along.

There are no surprises in this thriller, but if you're looking for a competent movie that keeps you in suspense without insulting your intelligence, Domestic Disturbance is worth taking in.

Seems to have gone through an extensive editing process on its way to the big screen.
