Jettisoning any ambition toward thrillerhood, Domestic Disturbance becomes a plodding, obvious angry-dad melodrama, ambling toward the final, fatal showdown between parent and usurper.

So TV-movie-of-the-week that you wonder throughout why you can't use a remote to find a decent ballgame.
The script is woefully inept, with plot twists that wouldn't pass muster in a high-school drama class.
The movie is a paid holiday for its director, Harold Becker. I say this because I know what Becker is capable of.
Anyone who sees this movie is going to be 20 minutes ahead of it, though there won't be that many after Weekend 1. With domestic disturbances, someone calls the cops. With this DOA, someone had better call the coroner.
There's almost no reason to see the movie, unless you have no qualms about wasting your time.
Although decked out with a legitimate star and handsome production carpentry, pic takes no greater interest in creating three-dimensional characters or fleshing out a credible storyline than does the run-of-the-mill straight-to-video thriller.
Every signifier in this quintessentially American domestic thriller is in satisfying running order.
