Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "Enough stacks the deck to the point of toppling it over. The scenario it creates of total male terrorism versus total wifely impotence is a roller-coaster projection of the ugly, claustrophobic reality of spousal abuse, yet did the movie have to be ugly and claustrophobic too?''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Average "Packaged deals such as Enough are like frozen dinners - you can always find them but they all taste pretty much the same. Take away Jennifer Lopez's multi-platform popularity, and this movie would have been headed directly to cable. To be frank, that's where it belongs.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Below Average "Jennifer Lopez is one of my favorite actresses, but not here, where the dialogue requires her to be passionate and overwrought in a way that is simply not believable, maybe because no one could take this cartoon of a story seriously. No doubt she saw Enough as an opportunity to play a heavy dramatic role, but there is nothing more dangerous than a heavy role in a lightweight screenplay, and this material is such a melodramatic soap opera that the slick production values seem like a waste of effort.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "If ever a movie was undermined by its packaging, it's this formulaic thriller ... Nicholas Kazan's screenplay invests most of its energy in heroine Slim's (Jennifer Lopez) attempts to elude her sadistic spouse, and director Michael Apted demonstrates admirable proficiency in staging suspense sequences bristling with imminent menace.''

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Slim (Jennifer Lopez), a hard-working woman thought she met the perfect man in Mitch (Billy Campbell), a charming, wealthy contractor. They start an idyllic life together in the suburbs, but after the birth of their daughter Grace, Slim discovers that Mitch has another side– a controlling and dark alter ego who turns trust, love and domestic tranquility into terror and menace. Terrified for her daughter, Slim tries to escape the marriage, but Mitch relentlessly pursues her. She changes her name, her appearance, her very identity, and goes into hiding, only to be hunted again. No one can help her, not her friends and not even the police. But Slim has had enough of fear and running.
