That Noah Wyle is really good!
11 May 2002 | by (Tallahassee, FL) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Lopez is chased by abusive husband, so she learns martial arts and fights back. Why she didn't just buy a gun is one of the many questions that could be asked about this film, but then that wouldn't give the target audience what it wanted. And judging by the audience reaction, they REALLY got what they wanted.

Anyone looking for a serious depiction of spousal abuse would be better off elsewhere. Originality is also not a commodity here. The writer of "Sleeping With the Enemy" should get some sort of credit on this thing. However, this movie is proof that any plot with dramatic potential can be made into a good movie if all involved do their jobs. The result is a surprisingly rousing thriller, which would probably be offensive were it not for the fact that it is simply very well-made. Dialogue is strong, direction effective, and the tech credits snappy. Jennifer Lopez may never be Meryl Streep, but she makes a good heroine. Special credit must go to Mr. Campbell for taking on an EXTREMELY risky part.

And finally, who would have guessed, Noah Wyle makes a really good sleazebag! I had no idea he had it in him. I just hope he gets a bigger part next time.
