Sleeping with the Enemy

Stupidity: At the end of the movie when Laura discovers that all the cans are neat in her cabinet, she knows she has to leave the house. There's a back door to her house, but she runs up the hallway to the front of the house. She could've been out of the house in seconds going out of the back door, but of course that would've ruined the end of the movie.

Stupidity: When Laura goes back to the house to get her bag, she takes off her wedding ring and flushes it. Problem is, she knows how her husband is and doesn't take the time to make sure the ring goes down! But she makes sure there's no other trace of her being there (flushing her hair down the toilet and drying the floor off from her wet feet!).

Continuity mistake: When Sarah/Laura first sees Ben singing and watering the lawn, the view from the inside of her bedroom shows that the room/wall extends quite a ways to her right. But from Ben's viewpoint outside, Sarah/Laura appears in a corner window, with no possible extension of the room/wall to her right anymore.

Trivia: When Laura's husband hits her at the beginning and she falls on the floor, it's really Julia Roberts falling. It's her head actually banging on the floor. Fortunately, the filmming crew got it on the first take.

Question: When she discovers the cans are all in order, why doesn't she run out the back door which is right there? Why does she run to the front door?

Answer: There's no way to know what she was thinking or why she chose to do that. She was panicked and reacted on impulse rather than logic. One thought, going to the front door is the most direct route to the main street where she could get to a neighbor or find other people more quickly. Backyards are more secluded and dangerous.
