You can only see the top 2 inches of it sticking out of his pants but Kale's underwear keeps changing back and forth between white boxer-briefs and plaid boxers. These scenes were probably shot or re-shot on different days and nobody thought to keep the same underwear that's sticking out of Kale's pants the same. See more »
Do you think he sees us?
No, he can't see us. But trust me, he can feel us watching.

One of the better mystery thrillers
'Disturbia' is a solid, entertaining thriller that does exactly what it says on the tin. Whilst it's nothing new or special, it is well made, suspenseful and effective in building and sustaining tension.
Shia LaBeouf and David Morse deliver solid performances as Kale and villain Mr Turner. Their characters are interesting and unpredictable and work well with the theme of the film. 'Disturbia' is well paced, the developments are appropriately timed and the film does a good job at keeping you guessing.
All in all, a perfectly decent mystery thriller. One of the better ones I have seen of late, and one I would recommend.
