Most of us were expecting an MTV version of “Rear Window” when “Disturbia” first hit the theaters. Luckily, that’s exactly what we got. You probably know the plot. After popping his Spanish teacher on the last day of school, Shia LaBeouf (Kale) is sentenced to three months house arrest. Trapped in a bedroom that is bigger than most Manhattan apartments, and with the xbox and iTunes accounts frozen, he finds solace in peeping in on his neighbors. I like peeping on my neighbors just as much as the next creep, but unlike the land of “Disturbia,” my neighbors don’t spend their days in cut-off shorts and bikinis. Soon, after befriending the eye candy next door, Kale becomes convinced that his other next-door neighbor is a serial killer. I got so caught up in the next hour or so of the movie, I forgot about the hotdog I had put on the stove for lunch. It was upsetting. The DVD features are nothing to rave about. There is a “Making of Disturbia” that is kinda fun and a blooper real that is a total of about 45 seconds. There is also a commentary by Director D.J. Caruso and Shia LaBeouf but really, who has the time?
