On the DVD case that was released around 2009 there is a picture of Laura at the top, and Martin at the bottom right corner walking away from their Cape Cod vacation house. But the house that is pictured is the rear façade of the fake house that was built in North Carolina for this movie. This rear of the "house" is never shown in the movie, but can be found on the internet as the movie set, and this is that rear façade picture right down to the last detail. Why THIS particular picture is used to depict the house is a complete mystery. See more »

Cast Julia Roberts, put her naked in the bath on the poster and all will be OK
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)
