Structurally flawed in ways that undercut efforts to ratchet up the suspense.

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

The physical details are so unlikely they seem contrived even in a thriller.

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

Solid haircut, solid movie -- or so goes my exclusive Travolta Unified Cinematic Hair Theory ... My theory stands.

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.

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

In a movie that casts as Vince Vaughn as its primary psychotic villain, it becomes plainly obvious that the studios just aren't even trying.

The way Domestic Disturbance plays now, it's as if its first half-hour is missing.

Cross 1949's "The Window" with 1987's "The Stepfather," plus a small dash of "Message in a Bottle" and you've got "Domestic Disturbance."

Another simplistic thriller in the child-in-peril vein...

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

Thanks to that vapid script, it's about as scary, and believable, as a little boy yelling 'wolf.'

There are some nifty Hitchcock-style opening credits, but after that, it's downhill.

A slick, rerouted TV movie at best.

The good news is that it runs a mere 89 minutes. The bad news is that it still seems too long.

Mr. Travolta is a loose and open actor, full of energy and charm, but it is hard to think of anyone who has wasted so much talent in so many bad pictures.
