Notebook Reviews: ADDICTED TO LOVE

3 out of 5 stars

Griffin Dunne – 1997

Addicted To Love is a so-so romantic comedy from actor turned director Griffin Dune. The premise is solid enough and the cast is good –  Meg Ryan, Matthew Broderick, Kelly Preston and Tchéky Karyo – but there’s something lacking here. Probably the romance element – it’s a little too mean.

Boderick is as reliable as ever but Ryan is a touch over-the-top as the girlfriend filled with revenge. You can see her fighting against Hollywood typecasting. 

Addicted To Love is a time passer – nothing more.
