John Travolta plays a good divorced dad who believes his son when the kid (Matt O’Leary) says he saw his evil stepfather (Vince Vaughn) murder a guy; everyone else believes the boy’s a liar. Every signifier in Domestic Disturbance, a quintessentially American domestic thriller, is in satisfying running order. Every component fits snugly into a code crackable by an audience primed for the well-manufactured and familiar.
