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

Never Marry Herr HitlerReviewed byTheo RobertsonVote: 4/10

I couldn`t help noticing that many people in the opening credits who made this film had Jewish sounding names . I didn`t think too much of it at the time but as SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY progressed I couldn`t fail to notice that the villain is softly spoken and is capable of as much charm as he is of flying into extreme rage , listens to teutonic music , is obsessed with regimentation , doesn`t smoke and believes in the virtues of a health regime. Did I mention he`s got a moustache ? Good job the bad guy isn`t called Adolph `cos that`d be too obvious so the writers give him the non third Reich sounding name of Martin otherwise women everywhere might think it`s a good idea marrying someone with all the character traits of Adolph Hitler . Hey wait a minute ! Wasn`t Martin Burney Hitler`s private secretary ?

Despite enjoying the sly not so subtle characterisation of Martin - Which I don`t think was coincidental - I didn`t enjoy anything else about this film. Despite having an A list female star and the inclusion of sex and bad language this film often resembles one of those TVMs that deals with domestic abuse and is brimming with banality and ridiculous melodramatic coincidences . Come to think of it Martin Burney reminds me more of Dick Dasterdly than Hitler

That was the day I died and someone else was savedReviewed bykirsty_ukVote: 5/10

What a great movie. One of Julia Robert's best performances. The start of the movie seems fine Laura and Martin seem like a happily married couple, then you see a scene where Martin berates her about hanging the bathroom towels out of order and then, Laura desperately tries to arrange the tins in the cupboard exactly right. Everything is definitely not alright when you see Martin punch Laura in the head. This is the story of how Laura fakes her own death and tries to make a new life for herself. You really feel for Laura and Martin is a really evil guy, who is portrayed very scarily. The music is beautiful and sad, one of the loveliest soundtracks I have ever heard. I really recommend this film to other women, although it is not aimed entirely at the female audience, I feel we get more out of it

Ron's Bass-o-matic screenplay is the real enemy hereReviewed bybob_megVote: 4/10

It's really tough for actors to transcend bad material and the horribly predictable screenplay by Ronald Bass really reinforces that in "Sleeping With the Enemy," It does what I like to call the "When a Stranger Calls" crap-out: for the first fifteen minutes, it's pretty engaging, and the last fifteen minutes are about the same. And in between is a boatload of Lifetime-caliber melodrama, and virtually nothing believable or interesting happening on screen.

This is nothing new for Ronald Bass and sometimes his movies are so well cast and acted that you don't notice how really creaky the set is around you. Not so here. Patrick Bergen's performance is horrendously hammy, almost campy in spots. His later eye-bugging hysteria totally diffuses any of the character's sinister shadings from earlier in the least before he started shouting LAURA LAURA LAURA like a comedian parodying Brando in "Streetcar." I never found Kevin Anderson to be a convincing actor, period, and he's no better with the Miami Vice greaseball look thrown over him.

On the other hand, Julia Roberts gives an arguably good performance; it's muted and nicely restrained most of the time (save for the "Pretty Woman"-type montage in the can almost hear the Fox execs ordering up Bass' team to recycle something that will retain fans of the 1989 drooler).

Don't get me wrong. This movie isn't unwatchable. But at times, it's almost laughable. A shame...from previous reviews it sounds like the book was very good.
