I am watching it now on TV. I have seen it a few times and like it. Have you seen it? Is it believable to you? Sometimes I wonder about my neighbors...

I have seen it, and thought it was pretty entertaining. Humorous at times, but also somewhat creepy. I think it can be believable, but I doubt that any of my neighbors fall into that category....o.O

That is cool. My neighbors are ok though I found out I have a person who took indecent liberties with a minor living on the other side of my neighborhood. Creeps me out.

I always feel that Disturbia is heavily inspired by the Hitchcock Rear window. The thing is David Morse has specialized in portraying these scary/violent characters, so much so that when he appears on screen with a gentle demeanour, I always suspect he is up to something (he seems like a very nice person in reality totally unlike these types of characters) but is cool in that way that you know something is wrong without having to be told. Jose Pablo Cantillo who plays Officer Gutierrez should have been meaner because he just seems like a cop who sees Shia LaBeouf's character as a thug, who needs to be kept in line. The thing is most of the characters needed to be fleshed out a little like Carrie-Ann Moss(the mother) who you feel concern for but no real connection as she is on the screen so little. Shia LaBeouf's character is believable in the character who lashes out at everyone and everything when he loses someone he loves so much. Though not an amazing movie it gets it's job done. This movie reiterates the idea of : Suburbia the scariest place on earth.

Sometimes surburbia feels that way. lol. You are right, they make the villain into this likeable guy. Those are the ones you have to watch out for. The cop could have been more believable like you said. I liked that they incorporated the house arrest angle into it making him have to cross the line to get a cop to come over.

Hi there! I like the film and I find it believable. I really don't think that I have a creepy-weird-psycho neighbor who will do such thing. (I hope so, hahaha!) I live in a community wherein people treat each other nicely, I have a neighbor who is like a family to us. I thank God for that!

That is good that you don't have a neighbor like that. Mine are ok now. I have moved around a lot and at times I did have some odd ones.

I like this movie. I like Shia Lebouff (or however you spell his name, lol) and I thought it was a good movie, although a little "cliche". Maybe "cliche" is not the right word..But I expected almost every single twist and turn that happened during the movie - the first time I watched it. You could almost totally predict what was going to happen, and then, yes, that's exactly what happened. I liked the integration of his character's social life into it - as his friend and the girl were funny, and I thought the house arrest part of it added a nice touch.

Thanks for the comment. I agree with your observations. Sometimes I like to watch movies where I can figure it out quickly. I also liked the humor the friends interjected like when his friend hid in his closet and sent him the picture msg on his cell phone. priceless.
