    It's surprising to see a director like Michael Apted and an actress like Jennifer Lopez associated with such tacky material.

    Too much. The hackneyed story about an affluent damsel in distress who decides to fight her bully of a husband is simply too overdone.
  3. One of those "Lifetime"-esque horror stories of evil husbands in the suburbs.
  4. 38
    Manipulates the audience.
  5. When a movie ostensibly on a serious subject is so God-awful silly, is it impossible to be offended, or impossible not to be?
  6. 38
    Shamelessly exploits the horror of domestic violence for melodramatic, cheap thrills.
  7. 33
    Taking the film as a thriller, it's neither exciting nor scary, hampered by a middle that plays much too long.
  8. There's some fun to be had in seeing two of TV's resident sweetie pies, Campbell and ER's Noah Wyle, play unrepentant sons of bitches, but it's not enough.
  9. You probably saw this film the last time around, when it was called "Sleeping With the Enemy." This one merely adds a better car chase and more ass-kicking.

    In the end you have to wonder why the highly reputed director Michael Apted ("Coal Miner's Daughter") and the gifted screenwriter Nicholas Kazan ("Reversal of Fortune") chose to go slumming in territory like this. They must have been offered wads of money to do the dirty job.

    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.
  12. So poorly constructed and so elementally banal that it's a shock the script was written by the same guy (Nicholas Kazan) who wrote such taut thrillers as "At Close Range" and "Reversal of Fortune."

    This particular script is deplorable. It's a pure cribbing of Ron Bass' screenplay for "Sleeping With the Enemy," which was no prize itself.

    Say the word, girl (Lopez), the next time you're offered one of these barrel scrapers: Enough!
  15. 20
    Enough is a very bad film and so was “Sleeping with the Enemy,” but at least that film had a first act.
  16. 10
    Mechanical revenge fantasy that skirts every serious issue it raises along a slick, cynical trajectory.
  17. 10
    Lacking a real actress, director Michael Apted is called upon to fudge the facts and make Slim's ordeal as taut as possible. He gets the job done, but the suspense scenes have a generic fright-by-numbers feel that tell us he's wearing his professional hat and knows it.
  18. 10
    In one respect at least, the film's idiocy works for Lopez: Every diva needs at least one camp classic on her résumé, and with Enough, she's scored a howler on the level of "Mommie Dearest."
  19. Clumsy, obvious, preposterous, the movie will likely set the cause of woman warriors back decades.
  20. 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.
  21. 0
    I think you'd have to be comatose or mentally incompetent not to find Enough ludicrous.
  22. In terms of actual social conscience, the movie gets a demagogic, rabble-rousing F. It also gets a failed grade for honest writing.

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. Full Review »

    It is an excellent thriller. A lesson to all the abusive husbands out there.
