Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)
Critic Consensus: A game Julia Roberts gives it her all, but Sleeping with the Enemy is one stalker thriller that's unlikely to inspire many obsessions of its own.

Critic Reviews for Sleeping with the Enemy
Sleeping With the Enemy is a flat tire of a movie. Looks good -- white sidewalls, chrome spokes -- but it flaps and clunks and never gets to vroom.
It's the sort of movie where all of the characters and plot moves (if one wants to call them that) are tailored to the thriller mechanics and have no existence apart from their crude functionality.
Roberts is terrific in a layered part. Anderson brings an edge to the nice-guy-next-door role, and the dark, dashing Bergin is chillingly twisted.
Julia Roberts, a beauty who can also act, is one of the best things in recent movies. By my count she hasn't made a really good movie yet.
Audience Reviews for Sleeping with the Enemy
One of the first thrillers I saw at the cinema. Julia is brilliant. She stages her own death to get away from her abusive husband but he realises and comes looking for her.
Really really scary. It's sad how things like this actually happen and the plot was really carefully thought about and written well. Julia Roberts was astounding and I had nothing but empathy for her character. Found myself screaming at the T.V and rooting for her. It's a definite must see!
What happens when a beautiful young woman finds and marries her Prince Charming and he turns out to be a psychotic monster.. The movie, a desperate-to-be-Hitchcockian, thriller, casts, (Julia Roberts) as Laura Burney, whose husband, the suave Martin, (Patrick Bergin), is actually a vicious, crazy, wife-beating slug!!!!
