For reasons I'm not going into its the best film ever better than sleeping with the enemy.
art reliving real life. it makes me breakdown every time I watch it but it's so close to real life.

Watching it now- brilliant film!

PotterBot · 29/01/2016 23:46

Yes I've watched it loads of times. I love it but don't see how it's close to real life. And i say that as someone who has violent thoughts against their ex husband.

Hayes yes brill film crying my eyes out now.
Potter (luckily) obviously ur ex wasn't at all like my ex therefore you wouldn't understand.

The bit in the coffin freaks me out

ladybird69 · 03/02/2016 23:37

I just think it's so clever and it shows how she outplayed a narcissistic psychopath and won in the end 😄

Oooh I love double jeopardy! The first time I saw it, it made me feel sick the level of manipulation he puts her through. Sleeping with the enemy is the one that really scares me though. That one was hard to watch.

What's the film, I think with Jennifer Lopez, sketchy on the details but similar to this. I think he's abusive and frames her then she beefs up and goes after him?

Mirror21 · 04/02/2016 18:02

Hayels its called Enough, brilliant

Hayels · 05/02/2016 00:15

ladybird69 · 06/02/2016 09:02

I love the (now very dated) bit in the library where she puts off her admirer by saying she was convicted of murdering her husband

ladybird69 · 06/02/2016 22:38

yeah the look on his face from cocky to shit scared in two sentences. and then her dead husbands face at the auction when he recognises her. brilliant.

bakeoffcake · 06/02/2016 22:42

Oh I love this film. So, so good.

I think it was based in a true story?

DoesAnyoneReadTheseThings · 06/02/2016 22:44

Such a good film!

bakeoffcake · 06/02/2016 22:46

Ignore me, I've just googled, it wasn't based on a true story.

SmallGreenBouncyBall · 06/02/2016 22:46

I love that film.
that and 'the net' are my insomnia fixes.

love the fashion as well and whish I could wear trousers like that!

ladybird69 · 06/02/2016 22:59

yeah Ashley Judd is just so stylish without trying (sigh) her husband makes me sick. bake it could be based on a true story sadly.
psst don't tell anyone else but my insomnia film is burlesque!!!!

LittleRedSparke · 06/03/2016 19:56

I remember when this came out - was the husband called Nicholas Parsons??

I also remember hating it......

gingerboy1912 · 04/06/2016 21:27

Good film. But the coffin scene is horrible. Can you imagine if she didn't have that gun Sad

ImperialBlether · 04/06/2016 21:28

I want to watch this. Is it on catch up, do you know?

hollyisalovelyname · 06/06/2016 09:50

I thought Sleeping With The Enemy was great.
Patrick Bergin was so scary.
The house on the beach was amazing.
