Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd: Joe Buissink/AP Wide World
June 07, 2002 at 04:00 AM EDT

How much of a nightmare is life for Slim (Jennifer Lopez), the desperate, saintly, so-abused-she’s-gonna-kick-some-man-ass heroine? At first, it looks as if she’s found the old-fashioned fella of her dreams. There’s just one catch: Mitch (Billy Campbell), a wealthy contractor, is a little too old-fashioned. As in, he thinks it’s his right to have an affair. And if that manly perk is questioned, he’ll answer the question with a slap to the face. Any more questions? Campbell plays Lopez’s tormenter as a demon-stalker cross between Michael Corleone and every blandly insensitive husband who ever skulked his way through the Lifetime channel. The result is a bogeyman horror film in sociological drag — I Know You Married an Abusive Creep Last Summer.
