Lapses in judgment all around...
Low-brow, underwritten melodrama posing as a suspense thriller has divorced, modest-living boat-builder John Travolta living in a seaside town and hoping to get along with his ex-wife's new husband, but John's pre-teen son has convinced him that the new hubby is bad news. Flabby, witless picture makes all the females look like ninnies and the police detectives seem like lazy incompetents; but this is quite deliberate, as the filmmakers want the audience completely on Travolta's side--but isn't there a more intricate, subtle way of devising this? The kid (who, by the way, resembles new stepfather Vince Vaughn more so than John Travolta!) is 12-years-old going on 27, while John himself looks wrung out. The movie hopes desperately to appeal to only our most basic responses to terror in the familial unit: new man in the house with a shady past is not only a crook but a psychopath, therefore he gets what's coming to him. But this is a cheat to anyone who invests their interest in these one-dimensional characters, and the cast struggles to enliven the stale scenario. ** from ****
