We gave it a C-

In Enough, Jennifer Lopez’s waitress, Slim, and Billy Campbell’s smoothy rich guy, Mitch, meet cute, marry, have a kid, and — faster than you can say ”Sleeping With the Enemy” — she’s on the run from her suddenly psycho, wife-beating, cheating mate. The arduously nonsensical plot has the desperate Slim (ignoring any obvious legal recourse) transforming herself into a go-girl ninja to wreak vengeance on the cartoonishly cold Mitch. All this to protect a helium-voiced little girl (Tessa Allen) with whom Lopez has so little chemistry, it’s as if she’s handling garbage rather than a small child.
