Sleeping with the Enemy has Julia Roberts as the victimized wife of an abusive and controlling successful man that she escapes by faking her own drowning during a boat trip. She reinvents herself and attempts to keep in touch with her elderly mother and restart her life far from the posh home that she had shared with her possessive and compulsive husband, but her happiness is short-lived and soon she must face her tormentor in this dramatic thriller. Patrick Bergen plays Martin, the mustachioed maniac who doggedly follows her from Cape Cod to Iowa. Can Laura (known as Sara in Iowa) have a happy ending?! Will Martin get his revenge for his wife leaving him? See the climatic ending to find out.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Julia discovers the cans are all in order, she runs for the front door and see the stereo set up there. Then the husband comes from behind. In the following scenes where she goes to the door to talk to Ben, the stereo is gone.

Trivia: In one scene, Laura is standing on the beach in a short dress. It was really cold that day and Julia Roberts (Laura) was freezing, so the film crew dropped their pants for that shot so she wouldn't be uncomfortable alone.

Question: Was the doctor (the owner of the sailboat in the beginning) in on Laura's planned disappearance? Or was the bad weather just a coincidence and gave her the chance to escape? Just though it was weird because her husband commented that she only gets on a boat like once a year, so I don't know how she could have planned her escape so perfectly.

Chosen answer: No, the doctor was not in on her plan. She had her escape planned for a long time, but was waiting for the right time. The stormy weather on the boat provided the "perfect" time for her to put her plan into action.
