  1. Every signifier in this quintessentially American domestic thriller is in satisfying running order.

    Doesn't make nearly the ripple it could have made.
  3. Travolta, a bit portly (or is it starboardly?), phones in his performance from his place in Maine; Vaughn is ice-cool but not especially convincing; the kid is OK, and Polo is a blank.
  4. Sttrictly movie-of-the-week stuff. And not very good stuff, at that.
  5. 25
    Few movies feel quite so perfunctory or needless or pointless as this one.
  6. So TV-movie-of-the-week that you wonder throughout why you can't use a remote to find a decent ballgame.
  7. 10
    The most surprising thing about the movie is that somebody bothered to make it in the first place.

    Ask yourself this, what if you witnessed a crime and no one believed you? Better yet, what if you were a kid when this happened? That is the premise of this modern day thriller, Domestic Disturbance. It isn't the perfect movie, but the story, while predictable, was still so much fun to watch. As for the cast, John Travolta and Vince Vaughn alone should tell you that you're in for something special. I know a lot of people love Vaughn, I don't, but he was great in this film. Matthew O'Leary, a newcomer back then, seemed as thou he's been doing this for years, acting as the perfect go between and playing his role flawlessly. Domestic Disturbance is fun, exciting, and has an unbelievable cast. Besides the predictability, the only other thing I can say negatively about this film was that it wasn't long enough! I really enjoyed it and didn't want it to end. Expand
