About the Movie
John Travolta stars in this thriller as divorced husband and father Frank Morrison, a boat builder concerned about his son Danny (Matthew O'Leary), a troubled 11-year-old who has shown a tendency to lie since his parents broke up. When his ex-wife Susan (Teri Polo) announces that she's getting remarried to Rick Barnes (Vince Vaughn), a recent arrival in town and a popular, wealthy philanthropist, Frank struggles with jealousy but feels that Rick might be a stabilizing influence for his son. When Danny begins relating unsettling stories about Rick, Frank at first chalks it up to youthful rebellion, but when Danny stridently claims to have witnessed his new stepfather committing murder, Frank's instincts tell him the story is true. As he investigates the new man in his family's life, Frank uncovers alarming facts about Rick, who's not the man he appears to be. Domestic Disturbance (2001) made headlines six months before its release when co-star Steve Buscemi, accompanied by Vaughn and screenwriter Scott Rosenberg, was stabbed and seriously injured in an after-hours bar brawl with locals near the film's North Carolina set.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: With domestic disturbances, someone calls the cops. With this DOA, someone had better call the coroner.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: It's dire, unimaginative silliness.
this movie is amazing...it is soo suspenseful and keeps your attention throughout the entire movie...definatly worth 10 bucks
Like Darn awesome!!! Best I have seen in like.....FOREVER! Yea like he said its woth the cash money!!!
Wooden and predictable
This movie had exactly one good scene, when John Travolta is talking to his son about why he and his mom broke up. It only lasts about a minute or so and the rest of the movie is pretty much cardboard cutout, collect a paycheck acting. The good scene is in the trailer so watch that and save yourself 10 bucks.
