When a 'Single White Female' places an ad in the press for a similar woman to rent a room (to replace the boyfriend she's just left), all the applicants seem weird. Then along comes a level... See full summary »
Jennifer Jason Leigh,
A 16 year old girl takes up with a charming young man who quickly shows his colors when he beats a friend simply for walking with her and then goes totally ballistic after she tries to break up with him.
Laura and Martin have been married for four years. They seem to be the perfect, happiest and most successful couple. The reality of their house- hold, however, is very different. Martin is an abusive and brutally obsessed husband. Laura is living her life in constant fear and waits for a chance to escape. She finally stages her own death, and flees to a new town and new identity. But when Martin finds out that his wife is not dead he will stop at nothing to find and kill her. Written by

At the time director Joseph Ruben was hired, Kim Basinger was attached to the project as Laura Burney. She ultimately turned down the part, though, feeling she wasn't right for the role. See more »
While Laura is on the bus to Iowa, you can see she has perfect makeup on. She also has no sign of salt on her skin. Given that she has just swam through salt water and fled for her life , neither one is likely. See more »

Too predictable to be engaging, too boring to be camp...
Nice hair and straight teeth can only take a thespian so far, even in material as dumb as this. Julia Roberts has always been a charismatic performer but unfortunately Sleeping With The Enemy was made during her initial dream run of enormously popular and profitable crap. Poor Julia lives in a Lovely Home with hubby Patrick, who has dark, smoldering features (good) and a vicious temper (bad). This can't go on, so Julia escapes in the best James Bond style and starts over in a new Lovely Home. Evil control-freak Patrick wants her back and will stop at nothing to fulfill his dream of invading her kitchen and obsessively re-stacking her cans. Spousal abuse isn't very entertaining, even when it's trivialized in a schlocky bit of fluff like this. Worst Scene: the music montage where Julia tries on hats to the strains of Brown-Eyed Girl...Ugh!
