    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A thriller that presses all the buttons: parental love, childhood terror, fear of Vince Vaughn. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    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. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The script is woefully inept, with plot twists that wouldn't pass muster in a high-school drama class. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Travolta, a bit portly (or is it starboardly?), phones in his performance from his place in Maine; Vaughn is ice-cool but not especially convincing; the kid is OK, and Polo is a blank. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    Doesn't make nearly the ripple it could have made. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie is a paid holiday for its director, Harold Becker. I say this because I know what Becker is capable of. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    There's almost no reason to see the movie, unless you have no qualms about wasting your time. show more

    It was fun and entertaining. I just love suspense movies, I watch them over and over and I am usually not tired of it.
