Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's dire, unimaginative silliness."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"This film quickly sinks into a lame, ultra-predictable storyline that would never have made it past the made-for-cable-TV editorial commission."
‑ Spence D., IGN Movies
"As much excitement as an episode of Family Ties."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Director Harold Becker helms what amounts to be a generic psychological drama that is about as complicated as a same-colored Rubix cube."
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"The real 'disturbance' is not in the home, but in the careers of all involved."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Movies like Domestic Disturbance leave me dispirited. There's nothing likable, exciting, or intriguing about them."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Filme feito para a sessão da tarde, onde bobagens deste tipo são aceitas com mais facilidade."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"This is low-grade Lifetime fodder at best"
‑ Jason Clark, Matinee Magazine
"Hits one predictable plot point after another until its rather sudden conclusion."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"Forget about dramatic tension. Or subtlety and nuance."
‑ Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International
"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."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Typical thriller material detracts from a touching father-son bonding story."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"The movie seems to have been slapped together by an editor with attention-deficit disorder... introduces a new, risible complication with nearly every scene..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"A fog of by-the-numbers clichés, unbelievable coincidences, and blatant theft from Hitchcock."
‑ Danny Graydon, BBC.com
"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."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
