26 Reasons Why Enough is a Great Guilty Pleasure
It just takes itself so damn seriously, but in a great way. The kind of way that screams GUILTY PLEASURE. And that’s all it is for me, a way to ignore all the problems in my life and indulge in bad wigs, an annoying child actress and Jennifer Lopez “acting.” It’s a little gem that I feel too many people have missed. Essentially it is a Lifetime movie that somehow made it’s way to the big screen.
If you’re into movies that are so bad they’re good then by all means seek out Enough. If you can’t imagine spending 90 minutes with J-Lo and her abusive husband, let me try to change your mind. Here are 26 reasons why Enough is an amazing guilty pleasure.
1. THIS INTENSE DVD MENU
Not only does this emphasize what a thriller Enough will be (I mean seriously why is her hair wet and who is she looking at???) but we get the friendly option of full screen AND widescreen.
2. THESE TITLE CARDS
Seriously, they show up throughout the entire movie trying to be “original.” It runs a fine line of being annoying but ultimately they are entertaining by being completely unnecessary. My personal favorite is “more than enough” because I love a play on words. Get it guys?!?!?
3. THIS GUY
Noah Wyle and a rose. I’m weak in the knees just thinking about it.
4. THERE IS A “GREAT SERVER” MONTAGE
It’s complete with lousy tips, fancy tray handling and being great with children. Not to mention it’s set to “All I Wanna Do” by Sheryl Crow. Ladies unite!
5. THIS HAPPENS
She is PISSED and in a tank top. Dangerous.
6. SO MUCH LIP GLOSS
In bed…while trying to escape her husband…
In a bad wig…
While in anguish
I know what my wedding WON’T look like.
I see a little lip gloss too. Two birds with one stone!
I’ll just say this, the visual above is supposed to mean a shit ton. See how he’s looking into the water rather than his wife and kids, well that is supposed to mean he’s drifting. Immediately after there is a shot of J-Lo looking incredibly concerned because he doesn’t want to play with dumb shells. That’s right fellas, looking into the ocean = cheating, abusive husband. This isn’t the only “meaningful” moment in the film but quite simply it’s just my favorite.
This is also part of a “happy family” montage set to this song. How subtle. Enjoy!
Billy Campbell really has a way with these.
Classic, classic, classic. I often wonder how this would play out in real life. I’m pretty sure it would end with the necklace still on my neck and self-hatred that I tried something so stupid.
I really believe she hasn’t seen money before.
I’d still tap that
You know, because time has passed. Not to mention…lip gloss.
We get a sweet visual of a mother and her child set to this song,
I only have one question, how much do you really love yourself J-Lo?
