It's dire, unimaginative silliness.
November 4, 2001
Movies like Domestic Disturbance leave me dispirited. There's nothing likable, exciting, or intriguing about them.

It's big and dumb, all right -- the sort of thing you'd like to shoot with an elephant gun to put out of its misery.
November 2, 2001
Does a masterful job of building menace until about halfway through.

The most surprising thing about the movie is that somebody bothered to make it.

With domestic disturbances, someone calls the cops. With this DOA, someone had better call the coroner.

A refreshingly unpretentious little thriller.

Since it purports to be a thriller, well, let's just say the edge of your seat doesn't exactly get a workout.

November 2, 2001
About as tense as a game of connect-the-dots.
November 2, 2001
The physical details are so unlikely they seem contrived even in a thriller.

November 2, 2001
Replacing suspense with formula, Domestic Disturbance doesn't make nearly the ripple it could have made.
November 2, 2001
It's all indifferently acted, sloppily directed and edited, and utterly ridiculous.
November 2, 2001
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.

Travolta plays the concerned, loving father with relaxed conviction and appeal. His performance deserves a better movie.
November 2, 2001
Domestic Disturbance isn't a great thriller, but it will suffice until one comes along.
November 2, 2001
The good news is that it runs a mere 89 minutes. The bad news is that it still seems too long.
November 1, 2001
Structurally flawed in ways that undercut efforts to ratchet up the suspense.
November 1, 2001
A slick, rerouted TV movie at best.
November 1, 2001
There are some nifty Hitchcock-style opening credits, but after that, it's downhill.

If the premise of Domestic Disturbance interests you at all, you're better off renting 1987's The Stepfather ... That film was everything Domestic Disturbance is not: taut, suspenseful, unpredictable, and not the slightest bit condescending.
November 1, 2001
When a disturbance is dramatized well, there's no place like home.

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

A passable time-passer.

The end result is still probably good enough to satisfy audiences in need of a decent distraction on the home front.
