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 CriticFull
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.''
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.''

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.''

woman thought she met the perfect man in Mitch (Billy Campbell), a charming,

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.
