Critic Reviews for Addicted to Love
The main problem with this movie is that it wavers between touchy-feely sweetness and dark-hearted nastiness. Its indecisiveness of tone ends up undermining and unraveling the production.
What bothered me more was that the characters are supposed to be intelligent, and yet they have the maturity of gnats. It is always a problem in a love story when the rival seems more interesting than the hero, and that's what happens here.
This twisted romance possesses the soul and edgy atmosphere of an independent film but not quite the conviction.
...an oddball premise that's employed to mostly underwhelming effect...
But if a twisted stew of retaliation and romance tickle your taste buds, you'll find it's an amusing little treat.
Audience Reviews for Addicted to Love
Very slight even for a rom com, but I kind of like it. The revenge on the French chef is pretty harsh ( ugh to the cockroach scene). I don't know if I can especially believe any of these four people as a couple, though. Matthew Broderick is kind of meh as a romantic lead, Meg Ryan is psychotic and a bit weird here (and not in a cute, quirky way either, although I think she's meant to be), the Frenchman is hammy and Kelly Preston does the vapid airhead role and can't really care about her. I think this only works because it's an older movie now and you don't see a lot of this cast now in movies, so it's kind of a fun flashback. I can imagine it would have been panned on release.
It is funny. A little dark (spying on your ex), but funny.
Two jilted lovers team up to get revenge on their ex's --- what do you think happens next? The execution of the plotline plays much better than the description, trust me, in this cute little black comedy/romance. Give it a chance, you'll be glad you did.
