An out-of-work accountant (Peter Krause) begins to suspect that his next-door neighbor, a Muslim student (Khaled Abol Naga), may be a terrorist and reports him to a skeptical FBI agent (Richard Schiff), much to the consternation of his wife (Kari Matchett), who scoffs at his unfounded suspicions. Jeff Renfroe directs with the requisite tension and Krause is especially good mixing his average-Joe persona with increasingly loony paranoia, but although Andrew Joiner's script grapples with some interesting post-Sept. 11 themes, the presumably intentional ambiguity of certain plot elements undermines the message of an otherwise suspenseful thriller. Rough and crude language, mild profanity, innuendo, ethnic slurs, moderate violence including a shooting death, nongraphic husband-wife sexual encounter, domestic discord and brief drug reference. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
