The Reviews for Sleeping with the Enemy (1991) 720p

Haunting, chilling tale of affluent spousal abuseReviewed byroghacheVote: 7/10

I found this movie, if not terribly believable, very moving and emotional when I saw it some years back. Julia Roberts brings a real vulnerability to all her roles, and is perfect here as the affluent but both mentally and physically abused wife.

The sad tale revolves around an apparently perfect upper middle class couple who share a beach home...the beautiful young Laura (who has every material comfort) and her obsessive and abusive husband, Martin. Laura lives in terror of her abuser, finally seizing a chance to escape by faking her own death and and fleeing to another town, where she assumes an entirely new identity. Meanwhile, Martin becomes ballistic when he discovers that his wife is not really dead and goes after her...

I admit it, the plot is pretty far fetched, a lot of holes in the story, some events depicted not very believable. Leave your logic behind. Still, I was able to overlook all this and focus my attention on Laura's plight, hoping she could evade (or eliminate) this intellectual brute, and build a new life for herself with a new love.

The portrayal of Laura's terror is vivid as she tries to appease her obsessive husband, who becomes violent if she fails to keep the pantry shelf items in perfect alignment. The most chilling scene of all is the rape, with its accompaniment of Martin's favorite classical music, a piece which thereafter haunts his young wife. No sympathy here for the husband, whose unfolding actions simply go from unspeakable to unthinkable.

Not a particularly believable plot but engrossing, nevertheless, and a pair of vividly drawn characters who elicit strong emotions. However, the best part of this movie is definitely its message. Contrary to the typical image, spousal abuse is no respecter of social class. It would have been much more difficult for me before this film than it is now to picture an affluent, educated, sophisticated abuser.

Cast Julia Roberts, put her naked in the bath on the poster and all will be OKReviewed byslightlymad22Vote: 7/10

Fresh from her success in Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman and Flatliners Julia Roberts takes the lead role in "Sleeping With The Enemy"

Sleeping with the enemy is a good title, because if the is movie is the enemy, then sleeping is what most viewers will end up doing.

I can't complain too much about this movie. Snore through it, maybe, but not complain. Some of it is so ludicrous I wondered whether it was originally conceived as a spoof comedy. I found my spirits sinking the longer I watched it. The opening scenes on the beach were effective and had promise, but the rest if the movie is a complete waste of time. It is essentially a slasher movie in disguise, complete with jumpy soundtrack and a plot that is full of countless holes.

Of the cast, Roberts looks good, but that is it, Patrick Bergman seems to be doing a Burt Reynolds impression when nobody (and I mean nobody) not even Burt Reynolds wanted to be Burt Reynolds. He is so cliché, I'm not sure his character is meant to be as funny as he seems.

As of the rest they seem to be from a struggling local amateur dramatic group and all just seem happy to be there.

How this movie grossed what it did amazes me. My advice is give it a miss. Avoid it like the plague. Tell your friends to pass it by. The acting is bad, bad, bad (Roberts included)

awful, awful, and yes, you guessed it....awfulReviewed bymelrod43Vote: 1/10

I rewatched this film tonight and was absolutely appalled at how bad it was. What was bad was not the acting; what was bad was not the storyline--it was every contrivance possible put in here to make this girl as stupid as a goat. These ridiculous contrivances were annoying and belittling and insulting. There are so many missteps in this movie that it becomes a game at some point to count them. There is no way to point out them all. If one likes this kind of game while watching a movie, then this one is heaven on earth for you. I don't know that an intelligent review can be given of this movie, because it's clearly aimed at an IQ of 32. Some movies are so bad, they're worth watching--this is one of those movies. Oh and this movie continues that oh-so-sickening trend of giving Julia Roberts a slow motion guffaw with those 98 teeth a'gleamin'. That just never gets old, does it? Eek!
