YMMV / Enough

  • Acceptable Professional Targets: Waitresses, who are said to be dumb and only in the job because they have no other skills.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: "Self defense is not murder"... huh... it is if it's premeditated (including breaking and entering and Framing the Guilty Party). The law is very clear on that.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Slim's daughter incessant crying and screaming, on par with Baby Mario.
    Roger Ebert: All of this would be bad enough without the performance of Tessa Allen as Gracie, the young daughter. She has one of those squeaky itsy-bitsy piped-up voices that combines with babyish dialogue to make her more or less insufferable; after the ninth or 10th scream of "Mommy! Mommy!" we hope that she will be shipped off to an excellent day care center for the rest of the story.
  • Narm Factor Nine, Captain!:
    • Although it's apparently intended to be serious, as Roger Ebert noted, Mitch is a completely absurd, Flanderized caricature of an abusive husband; not just a hybridization of Germaine Greer's worst nightmare, and Godzilla in human form, he's also, for the purposes of the plot, practically omnipotent. The scene where he rampages through the house of Slim's terrified parents is particularly amusing. Mitch himself may not necessarily be in it For the Evulz (he's generally shown to be angry), but that's no reason for us in the audience not to be.
    • Slim suddenly has a self-defense coach, who teaches her and her alone, and even briefly narrates the final fight as if to say "use the force".
    • Jennifer Lopez and Juliette Lewis' joint-catchphrase. "Piece of cake" "Piece of Pie". Repeated numerous times throughout the film, towards the end they even abbreviate it to the non-sequitur "Cake" "Pie".
  • The Scrappy: Gracie, Mitch and Slim's young daughter, whose only characterization during the course of the film is to be cute, whiny, shrieking, crying or sleeping. Even if you can't blame the girl for her parents' cruelty/stupidity, it still doesn't stop her from coming off as The Load who unintentionally impeded her mother's efforts to escape and provoked her father to his levels of implacability (even though she may have been written as such).
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks!: You can't help but notice a more than passing resemblance between this movie and 1991's Sleeping with the Enemy, which many regard as a superior film. note 
  • What an Idiot!: Many instances throughout the film, but for starters, there's Slim's decision for her and Gracie to go into a motel that anyone could enter instead of a shelter where they would be protected just so her daughter would not be "tainted".
  • WTF Casting Agency: Jennifer Lopez as a poor, down-on-her-luck waitress? Billy Campbell as a Complete Monster wifebeater? Noah Wyle as his evil wingman?
