  • Starring:

  1. It's the most tension-producing movie out there right now -- in the best way, it's almost unbearable.
  2. At this point in her career, Lopez can clearly bend the universe -- but no amount of bending can make Enough anything more than formulaic.
  3. Campbell is the movie's primary power source. His steely gaze and overbearing quietude are forever tainted; "Once and Again" doesn't stand a chance in Lifetime reruns.
  4. 33
    Taking the film as a thriller, it's neither exciting nor scary, hampered by a middle that plays much too long.
  5. 25
    It's a cannibalization of "Sleeping With the Enemy," a not-so-good Julia Roberts film, with a ridiculous female-empowerment subtext and a relentlessly stupid script that goes nowhere you can't predict before the opening credits roll.

    Say the word, girl (Lopez), the next time you're offered one of these barrel scrapers: Enough!

    More interested in standard thriller effects than in giving us human beings to contend with. The audience I saw this with seemed to want to feel insulted, and this piece of crap delivered.

    No its not the best movie, nor the best acting, but the message is still strong; enough is enough. Aimee Mann's re-written "Today's the Day" (titled "Enough" in the credits) is incredibly beautiful, that gave my score of the movie an extra point. Expand

    This is a movie but on this subject the audience can not afford to think this is the way it go i the real world. I know it is for entertainment but again the subject is way to serious to give all these false senarios. Bottom line she would stand a 50/50 chance of being incarcerated! Yes. It is not always ruled as self defense. Do your research with National organizations on this subject PLEASE. Expand

    There was some entertainment had here. But this movie suffers from horrible dialogue and rushed setup. When you are supposed to feel bad for Lopez in the beginning, her and her husband are putting out almost cringe inducing dialogue and it was bad enough, but then they had to rush the setup. There is little character development and its pretty hard to feel bad for anyone. but it does get points for solid acting and pretty good action. Expand

    I do love that beautiful song by Aimee Mann somewhere during the middle of the film that woke me up for three or four minutes.
