    GUILTY PLEASURE

    Joseph Ruben has fashioned a by-the-numbers, glossy, engrossing, if trashy and predictable, thriller. It is imminently watchable, of course, and features the mega-watt smile of our fave, Julia Roberts, who improbably dons theatrical costumes in the midst of a semi-breakdown to the tune of Brown-Eyed Girl. The men around Julia, both her over-the-top psychopathic husband and her would-be new, soft boyfriend (Patrick Bergin and Kevin Andersen, respectively) are completely dispensable, and Ruben knows this: he keeps us monumentally focused on the beguiling Ms. Roberts throughout. It is easy to forget and forgive lapses in credibility (there are many), and the opening twenty minutes have a glossy, antiseptic queasiness about them that seem to be setting up a much more deft and daring thriller. All of that vanishes, along with common sense, but it hardly matters. This movie is one you can watch over and over and over again, a bunch of chips nearby: it moves quickly, harmlessly, and gives you what you want when you just don't feel much like thinking.

    Love this movie! I enjoy Julia Roberts very much anyway so it's hard for me not to like her acting. I'm a fan. This movie has a good plot. She's in a marriage with a controlling man. Everything has to be perfect. She must be the perfect wife. When she plans her elaborate escape she never is fully free of this man. He tracks her down. Suspenseful and although a predictable ending, gotta love it!

    Julia Roberts had always been a great actor even in her earlier career as with this movie. She expresses courage, bravery and will to survive as she endures a controlling and abusive relationship. Her strategy to escape the harsh conditions of living with her abusive husband with impeccable.

    Great movie. I saw this movie when it first came out. Had to purchase it for an abnormal psychology class and it was as good as the first time I saw it.

    Next to pretty woman this is my favorite Julia Roberts movie. Her escape from the abusive spouse was quite clever. The movie gives hope to those in a relationship like this one and is a must see!

    I've seen this movie many times; really good movie. Bought it as a gift but the first one got lost in the mail. They did resend a new one quickly but the gift was late nonetheless.

    Liked the movie a lot, one of Julia's early best. The only downfall was this was short on features, would have been nice to have had commentary, documentary, etc.

    The blu-ray itself looks great. The movie itself is an average (or maybe slightly above average) thriller, of the same type that were churned out in the early 90's.

    Julia Roberts has never disappointed. While this movie is not my favorite Roberts flick, I did find enough substance to like it. Recommended.

    Although disturbing, this is definitely a Julia Roberts favorite of mine. WARNING!... not for kids or anybody affected by scenes of abuse

    It is a look at the lengths an abused wife will go to in order to leave her abusive and controlling husband. A good film by Julia Roberts.
