John Travolta is the Screw-Up Dad who leaves His Marriage,
but His faithful and Loving Son still believes in Him, and
tries to understand the Divorce.
Vince Vaugn is very good Creepy step-dad.
i enjoyed Vince in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", though he had a smaller role.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, in the Film that made them a Couple, are a lot of Fun in
action and in Romance in that one.You should see it.(9.5.2013)

This is actually not a bad film. It has elements of The Stepfather in it (which Vaughn pulls off flawlessly). Do not judge this movie by the remake of Psycho. Where Psycho left you feeling disappointed, this movie, while not a raging success and aging classic, holds enough in true entertainment value to keep your attention and satisfy any need to have an anti-chick flick night.
I'm not proclaiming this to be a phenomenal film, because it isn't, but when you have watched all the DVD's on your shelf more than five times, slip this one in. Just see if Vaughn's performance does not creep you out, whether marginally or completely. I'd love to see him in more dangerous roles or villain-like roles, because the man can hold a threat of danger in his eyes as few actors are able!

Boy, Vince Vaughn, do u EVER clean up nicely!

The house where this takes place is to die for; Vaughn shows his true acting talent and John Travolta once again NEVER disappoints. I have never seen an actor get into character as well as John.

A fast moving, gribbing story of love at its best.

Not quite disturbing enough...

"This film is pretty bad. It's funny how your taste changes over time. When this came out I didn't really know what I liked and for some reason I thought I liked this. Ha, and so I bought it. Having watched this recently I've come to realize just how awful it really is. I mean, technically this movie is just stupid.

The acting, as campy as it can be, is the films only real noteworthy point.

The film tells the story of a divorced father's love for his son. Yeah, my face is not straight. Really, Frank is a jealous ex-husband who resents his ex-wife for marrying the seemingly straight laced Rick. Their son, Danny, hates his new step-dad. The problem is that Danny has a habit of lying and getting into trouble, so when he witnesses his new step-daddy killing someone no one believes him.

Well, Frank does, but that's more because he REALLY wants to.

The film is kind of comical in its approach. I totally get some of the themes here, but this campy, corny delivery makes fun of it so-to-speak and makes it kind of laughable. The situations that arise are preposterous, and the faux sense of tension that embodies this film is NOT authentic or lasting. In fact, the final confrontation between Frank and Rick is one of the funniest (unintentional of course) scenes in movie history (well, that may be farfetched). When John Travolta just burst into the garage to save the day, I was in stitches.

Like I said, thankfully the actors here do a great job with what little they are handed. John Travolta is effectively parental. Even if the film kind of takes jabs at his personal state, he sells it. Vince Vaughn steals this though. He is just down right creepy. I like Vince, always have, and while he is a far better comedian than a dramatic actor, he pulls this off very well. Even when his character is slipping into camp, he remains at all times interesting.

What ever happened to Teri Polo?

Anyways, this film is pretty stupid, awfully so, but whatever. If you have nothing better to do and want to soak in a preposterously entertaining thriller then, by all means, sit back and enjoy. I don't see a need to ever watch this again, but I don't hate myself for having seen it once (well, twice)."
