If you haven't seen cutie Shia LaBeouf in this surprisingly successful teenage thriller with a premise similar to that of Rear Window, it's time to rent Disturbia. LaBeouf plays Kale, a teenager on house arrest for assaulting a teacher who uttered some unkind words about Kale's recently deceased dad. He whiles away his posh "prison" time watching the goings-on outside, including those involving his hot new neighbor, Ashley (Sarah Roemer). Soon, Ashley is onto Kale and wants a piece of the stakeout action, too. The teens become convinced that a creepy neighbor across the street is actually a killer, and from there the movie goes into full-throttle thriller mode. For more of my thoughts on Disturbia (which spent three straight weeks as the No. 1 movie at the box office), check out my review.
