Disturbia Movie Review: Who cares when the girl is hot?

Disturbia made $23 million over the weekend, which surprised just about everyone, except me. The previews looked pretty slick, and a lot of people I knew were looking forward to seeing this one. And, apparently, a lot of other people wanted to see Disturbia, too.

While Disturbia is a rip-off of Rear Window, that's okay, because formulaic thriller done right can still be good, if not at least entertaining. Disturbia stars Shia LaBeouf on the verge of his major breakout, and also features super steamy Sarah Roemer, who helps get us through the slow parts.

The movie is good, but not as good as I was hoping. It falls into teeny bopper mode a few times, and even when it doesn't, the screenplay isn't quite sophisticated enough to take it to the next level. Still, overall, Disturbia is an effective and entertaining movie.
