26 Reasons Why Enough is a Great Guilty Pleasure

I have always been obsessed with the movie Enough. Don’t ask me why but from the first moment I saw this trailer I was hooked.

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

to have and

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

10. AND A FLIP PHONE

11. MEANINGFUL VISUALS

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!

12. THIS “I DON’T GIVE A F***” FACE

17. J-LO RIPS A NECKLACE OFF HER NECK

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.
