I was able to watch this film during my high school days in the province and on TV! I just find it extremely funny back then. Addicted to love is about two lovesick strangers who connived together for love. Sam, a goody-goody astronomer was off to win back the love of his life Linda who leaves him for a Frenchman named Anton she met in New York. While Maggie, a photographer wants to take revenge on Anton, her ex-fiance. Together, they devices a good plan to separate the two which resulted in a very unexpected way!

Re-watching it on DVD, I still find it funny. Both Ryan and Broderick are charming and they complimented each other. The story isn’t much to munch on but it was a feel-good movie  and I just love the balance of love and humor in it. It won’t leave you lingering with addictive thoughts but it will tickle you to the bones and would be a very good line up for a DVD marathon with your love ones this Valentines.

Ratings: 7/10

  1. Great review.
    I had wondered as I was writing this whether this movie has been mentioned on any blog, anywhere, in the past year. I would honestly be surprised if it was. It’s surprising how quickly a movie is completely forgotten, lost in the torrent. In Addicted to Love’s case, I would say that it’s a grave injustice.

    • Thanks!
      I agree, I thought it’s one of those good ol’ rom-coms from the 90’s. Speaking of the 90’s, it’s always a wonder to me why in this era, there seems to be a different vibe with the movie being produced compared to the movies coming out now. I guess it’s the resurgence of old movies in 2000’s that bothers me a little – oh, and tons of “cheerleading” and “dance” movies haha 🙂
