Overview

A Cinderella story turns into a nightmare when a former waitress' perfect marriage gives way to adultery and physical abuse in this combination of domestic drama and revenge thriller. Motherless young woman Slim (Jennifer Lopez) works in a San Francisco diner with her best friend, Ginny (Juliette Lewis). After almost succumbing to the slick flirtation of an insincere customer (Noah Wyle), she is rescued by another dashing diner named Mitch (Bill Campbell). A few years later, the now happily married couple seem to have it all -- a perfect house, a precocious daughter (Tessa Allen), and a comfortable life. Then, Slim discovers that Mitch is actually a lothario who has been sleeping with other women behind her back. When she protests, he slaps her around and uses daughter Gracie as leverage to keep her in line. Slim enlists the help of her friends to escape with her child, though Mitch attacks and very nearly kills her in the process. Going on the lam, Slim adopts a series of new identities, wigs, and residences to avoid the goons Mitch has sent to retrieve her. Along the way, she receives help from Joe (Dan Futterman), a friend and old flame from college. Ultimately, Mitch and his unexpected allies so terrify Slim that she must turn the tables and transform herself from hunted to hunter. In doing so, she receives some surprise assistance of her own -- from Jupiter (Fred Ward), the rich father who abandoned her mother years ago. Although the soundtrack to Enough features the music of star J. Lo, the title song was written especially for the film by Magnolia tunesmith Aimee Mann.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
International pop star and sex symbol Jennifer Lopez is cast effectively against type as a former waitress who struggles to keep her young daughter and herself safe when her "dream marriage" goes sour. Yes, we know, it’s tough to imagine the glamorous J-Lo as a working-class girl who gets smacked around by an abusive husband, but under the direction of Michael Apted The World Is Not Enough she’s both convincing and sympathetic. Billy Campbell, the oh-so-sensitive hubby of TV’s Once and Again, is unnerving as the wealthy charmer whose controlling nature becomes menacing when his wife refuses to overlook his infidelities. Rather than morph into the typical abused-wife drama you’d expect to see on Lifetime, Enough shows Lopez taking proactive steps to establish a new identity and defend herself physically after Campbell gets violent. The movie’s third act sets the stage for a final confrontation that’s more than a little melodramatic, but immensely satisfying nonetheless. J-Lo’s transformation from helpless victim to empowered combatant is effectively dramatized, even if she does seem like one of Charlie’s Angels in the film’s slam-bang climax. Apted’s direction is vivid and dynamic, and he draws a stark contrast between aggressor and victim. The two leads are backed up by slick supporting performances from Dan Futterman, Juliette Lewis, and Noah Wyle, but make no mistake: This is J-Lo’s show from beginning to end, and she commands the viewer's attention right from the outset.
Washington Post
Apted has paced Enough with the required amount of snap, keeping the whammies coming at regular and increasingly terrifying intervals. Ann Hornaday
San Francisco Chronicle
It's the most tension-producing movie out there right now -- in the best way, it's almost unbearable. Mick LaSalle

    Jennifer Lopez is amazing!!!

    Jennifer Lopez is a talented actress and singer, I really enjoy watching her shows and listening to her music. This movie kicks some serious butt, very inspiring for women to be strong and keep control over their lives. Kind of scary to think what lies and menipulations lie under the surface of some people, the male lead role did a great job in his performance. Awesome movie all around.

    I Had 'Enough' Before The Movie Was Through

    The only thing i can honestly say about this movie is that it's so tiresome, predictable, boring, and is a bit over dramatic. Something about it was so cheezy from the acting, the obviously choreographed fighting, and the musical score (which was utterly painful and just annoying!). The 'suspense' they try to attempt for this movie is just funny, it doesn't have a sense of danger (since we all know Jennifer will come out as the winner anyway with barely nothing more than just a few blood marks on her face, while still having her hair so perfect), and is just plain stupid. I don't think Jennifer Lopez is all that great as an actress. She's just OKAY, but i think she gets overrated for her acting which really isn't all that big of a deal, almost anybody can do just as good or better at the roles she plays.

    Womens Studies Final Review

    Enough This film takes the socially constructed image of a downtrodden weak, yet family oriented woman, and places her in the visual gaze of combat. The plot of the movie uses Lopez¿ sex appeal to its full potential as this revenge thriller is cliché down to the last drop. Jennifer Lopez dawns the initial guise of a beautiful, frail waitress, whom seemingly meets and marries the man ¿of her dreams.¿ That dream however, quickly becomes a nightmare. The two marry, and Jennifer Lopez¿ character, Slim, has a daughter. She later finds out that not only is her husband unfaithful, he is also abusive. Her solution? Rather than confront the cinematically portrayed ¿dominant¿ image of her husband, she flees, reinforcing the stereotypical representation of a ¿terrified woman.¿ It just so happens that she is the illegitimate daughter of a business tycoon, who helps fund her ¿new life¿ or rather, several of them. She learns that running serves no purpose, as her husband tracks her down time and time again. The law cannot help her, as she has, in a sense, kidnapped her own child. It seems being a woman isn¿t enough to resolve the issue, as her only solution is to confront her husband man to man. She invests in personal combat training to prove to him once and for all she has had enough of everything, with the exception of tight body suits

    Poor with a Capitol P.

    J. Lo is alright at acting. But the plot is just plain retarded.
