Disturbing Behavior (1998)
« on: May 17, 2013, 11:30:56 pm »

Disturbing Behavior looks, feels and acts like a discarded episode of The X-Files and there is good reason for that. With a handful of people that have worked on the series at one time or another, this one was bound to take on that flavor. That's not a bad thing. But that should also tell you just how "scary" this "horror" movie is. It's not. When has an X-Files episode ever been scary? Exactly. Disturbing Behavior was one of the first DVD's I ever bought when the format exploded onto the scene and it's been almost that long since I actually sat down to watch this. Time away from this movie has not aged well at all. I never thought the movie was all that good to begin with, but watching it tonight, it was pretty painful.

My biggest gripe with this one is the wasted cast featuring Nick Stahl, Katie Holmes and James Marsden. There is only so much an actor can do when they have to work with a script that is full of holes with some really bad dialog as this one. No teenager at anytime in the history of the planet ever talked like Nick's character does. It's a screenwriter that is trying to be cool....or cute or whatever by trying to create a new style of language that just comes off incredibly weak and forced. Everything that comes out of Stahl and Holmes mouth induces unintentional laughter. This is a movie to Skip. About the only thing that got right was the music, especially that of The Flys.

One last thing, I still don't know how this was ever given an R Rating. All it has is a few F-Bombs and a  t i t  shot that you can barely see. Without question the weakest and softest R you will ever find. You can show this entire movie basically unedited on broadcast TV by today's standards and not worry about getting fined for it.

Still a great song that I listen to from time to time.

I'd never even heard of this movie until it popped up on Netflix about two weeks or so ago.  The one thing that threw me was Marsden, I mean, when this movie came out I was this scrawny little puke and now I'm an adult, whereas Marsden looks EXACTLY THE SAME.  And it was weird seeing Captain Pike with that lousy moustache.  And I know there was one or two "hey, that guy" moments but I don't remember what the heck they were.

I had a couple of "hey, that guy..." moments myself. Given how old this movie was and the last time I watched this, there were a couple of actors that I ended up watching on TV shows that I just didn't remembering being in Disturbing BehaviorA. J. Buckley who plays Chud, would go onto play Adam in CSI: NY, while David Paetkau who plays Tom would go onto play Sam in Flashpoint. Ironically enough, for both actors, this was their feature film debut.

I barely remember the flick. It is OK at best.
