Editorial Reviews

In this "edge of your seat thriller," John Travolta stars as Frank Morrison, a man who discovers that his son's new stepfather (Vince Vaughn) is not who he pretends to be. Frank's investigation into this man's past explodes into a terrifying mission to rescue his son from the ultimate danger. This chilling, critically acclaimed hit will have your heart pounding from start to finish!

Now, THIS is a John Travolta movie! Especially when this movie is called "Domestic Disturbance", a movie that is packed with so much action and suspense that it never, never, never lets up from one minute to the next! This is director Harold Becker's ("Mercury Rising", "Malice") best film since he directed Bruce Willis in 1998's "Mercury Rising"! The rest of the supporting cast, including Vince Vaughn ("The Lost World: Jurassic Park"), Teri Polo ("Meet the Parents"), Steve Buscemi ("Armageddon"), and newcomer Matt O'Leary were all incredible alongside Travolta. But, to me, this is really John Travolta's movie as he stands out above the crowd as Frank Morrison, a successful boat builder and divorced, but loving father to his son Danny (O'Leary). Frank's ex-wife Susan (Polo) is now married to a new resident named Rick Barnes (Vaughn), also Danny's stepfather, whom everyone thinks of as the perfect gentleman and such, but Rick is not so perfect to Danny when he witnesses Rick killing a person and burning his body inside a factory one night. And quite frankly, the only person who will believe Danny is none other than his father, whom Danny has never lied to before. Rick knows that Danny told his father that night and starts making threats to him about it...but Frank will be damned if Rick thinks that he's going to lay a hand on his son! So, Frank goes out to find out the truth about Rick and bring the truth to light, etc. With lots of suspense from start to finish, leading up to a earth-shattering climax between father (Frank) and stepfather (Rick), you'll agree that "Domestic Disturbance" is one of the best John Travolta films ever made since "Swordfish" and "The General's Daughter"! A DVD must-have for any Travolta fan or any Travolta collection!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Disturbing, But Entertaining November 14, 2005
"Domestic Disturbance" is an underrated thriller that boasts a frightening performance from Vince Vaughn and good work from John Travolta, playing a nice guy for a change.

Sure, the plot is very predictable all the way to the end, and the fact that we find out early on that Vaughn's character is a baddy takes a lot of the suspense out of the movie. But I was still compelled to watch to see how the good guy would eventually triumph. And Steve Buscemi also is a standout as Vaughn's creepy business partner.

I didn't expect a whole lot out of the film when I first saw it, but I found it an entertaining and satisfying way to kill 90 minutes.

2.0 out of 5 stars very predictable November 10, 2001
By ash
It's a sheer waste of Travolta's talent even though he gave a good performance, the plot is very predictable, repeated and lame. I would rent this movie just for John Travolta's and Vince Vaughn's performances, Steve Buscemi does justice to a creepy character, but movie is no thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good moments, but could have been better November 11, 2001
By A Customer
John Travolta is convincing as a good father, who is trying to be accepting of his son's new stepfather, Vince Vaughn...and Vaughn is frighteningly real as a sociopath. Steve Buscemi once again does a good job as an individual with questionable character; and Teri Polo continues to raise her acting stock since her star role in "Meet the Parents."
The tense moments where Vaughn and Travolta control the action are well-designed. However, these moments seem a bit contrived at times, and complex situations are resolved too easily. A truly good thriller will take the audience through a number of intertwined events that are not easily solved. Much of the storyline in this film is one-dimensional, and great actors also come across as one-dimensional when they have a weak script to work with.
Also, this movie clocks in at less than 90 minutes, so character and plot development don't get the fair amount of time they need for a truly strong movie.
Still, some good thrills are found in this movie, and it's a good flick for a rainy day when you aren't looking to think too hard about what you are watching. However, spend your hard-earned money on the matinee bargain price.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies of its type to come along in years February 20, 2004
I really like this movie. Granted, it's a little predictable, and in places maybe Travolta seems a little flat. It has a few other flaws as well. But there are a lot of reasons to like a movie and sometimes you have to make allowences.
What works about it? Matthew O'Leary and Vince Vaughn; the helpless kid & the bad guy. As the movie progresses, the kid gets more and more loveable and the evil dude becomes ever more despicable. Everything you need for this type of movie to be successful; a couple of very good actors in the right roles, convincingly earning, in this case, our sympathy or our bile. Even if the movie holds up in no other way for you, these two actors are sure to do their part. Settings, production, background, or script aside, these two deliver.
Predictable? Somewhat, sure. How many movies aren't? As for Trovolta perhaps being a little off, hey, the man is very busy. Besides, he was supposed to be low-key in this role, the emphasis of the movie being his son's plight. I think ultimately he served that role very well.
So despite its flaws, this movie still works, and I think quite well. If you haven't seen it you should consider doing so.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice in places where it should be naughty. November 28, 2001
Stereotypical characters, convoluted logic, and an abundant absence of intelligence abide in "Domestic Disturbance," a thriller that wants to be naughty, but ends up playing nice. What begins as a somewhat interesting film tailspins into an unending chasm of unbelievable plot twists and aggravating characters who make all the wrong choices. Here is a movie that covers familiar ground, yet it fails to spark much interest once things go awry.
John Travolta stars as Frank Morrison, a boat builder whose ex-wife Susan (Teri Polo) is on the brink of remarrying. This, of course, is unacceptable to their 12-year-old son, Danny (Matthew O'Leary), whose outbursts against his parents' divorce have led to being picked up from the police station on numerous occasions. Like any good father, Frank advises Danny to accept that which he cannot change, and to give his new stepfather, the wealthy and popular Rick Barnes (Vince Vaughn), a warm welcome.
Now anyone who knows their thrillers can guess that if there is money involved, then there's usually a tainted past here and there; this film is no exception. The wedding goes off without a hitch, despite the presence of Ray Coleman (Steve Buscemi), a former acquaintance of Rick's who is set on collecting a large sum of money from his old pal. One thing leads to another, contrivances appear, and Rick has a murder on his hands, unaware that Danny witnessed the deed from the backseat of the car in which it occurred.
This is the first in a series of several scenes that look promising, but hold little intensity or surprise.
