Sleeping With the Enemy (1991)

Joseph Ruben directs Julia Roberts, Patrick Bergin and Kevin Anderson in this thriller where Pretty Woman fakes her death to leave her abusive husband but he ain’t having none of it.

A diluted thriller, remarkable only for Bergin’s memorably evil, OTT obssessed villain. He likes his towels neat, his cans facing label out and Berlioz pumping on the cassette player. He’s so self aware of these calling card faults he does precisely all these things to make his presence known in the weak tea finale. Characters doing stupid things to move the plot along is the only notable constant. Features a montage of cute Julia Roberts trying on hats in place of a chase or stalk. Has been remade over a dozen times in India. Dreadful.
