Disturbing Behavior

Disturbing Behavior is one of the worst movies I've seen this summer. The plot is mindless, the acting is tolerable, and the suspense level of the movie, which I had the most hopes for, is a huge let down.

The problem with the movie is that there are absolutely no plot twists (a requirement for this genre). Steve Clark (James Madsen) and his family have just moved to the town of Cradle Bay. Soon he realises things aren't what they seem and teams up with Rachel (Katie Holmes) to uncover the truth. Of course, the people who are turning the teenagers of Cradle Bay into ideal adolescents (talk about an oxymoron) aren't going to let them get away so easily. In the end Steve and Rachel encounter no real problems and win way too easily, with dozens of unexplained bits here and there as to how they could do it.

The Pink Floyd Another Brick in the Wall line at the end ("Hey teacher! Leave those kids alone!") is pretty cool, but The X Files team of David Nutter (at the helm) and Mark Snow (music) don't do anything to save this show. Don't waste your time/money on this one.
