Jennifer Lopez plays a waitress named Slim. She meets Prince Charming in the person ofMitch (Billy Campbell). They get married, have a kid, and overnight Prince Charming turns intoJason Voorhees. After suffering a relentless campaign of terror, Slim shifts from Sleeping withthe Enemy to I Spit On Your Grave, and fights back. Her retaliation, which is the entire pointof the film in terms of title and promotion, only begins 80 minutes in. That’s a long time to waitthrough wha… the trailer had already told you.
While you’re waiting for the film to get to the good stuff, you can sit back and enjoy somegreat sound. The sound reproduction is crystalline and free of distortion. The music sounds fine,and special attention seems to have been paid to creating an environment with the sound effects.Some particularly impressive tricks with voice-over dialogue occur during the trainingsequence.
The picture comes in both fullscreen and 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen (you know whichone to choose). The image is very sharp, and the blacks are deep and solid. The contrasts andflesh tones are okay, but could be kicked up a notch.
Hmmm. Almost nothing here, which is surprising for what had been a major release. I guessthis is what lackluster box office will do. You’ve got the trailer, simple filmographies for the castand crew, and a video for Lopez’s “Alive.” Pretty sparse, I have to say. The menu is an animatedand scored main page, and scored secondary pages.
The transfer is sharp, and the film itself is, if nothing else, slick. But Lopez better get her acttogether, or we will be looking back at Enough as the moment when the career slide began.
