Stalking does not sound like a viable basis for a romantic comedy, but director Griffin Dunne and screenwriter Robert Gordon have somehow made it work.

Misfire "romantic comedy" of stalking.

Reveals that in genuine affairs of the heart, nothing is ever predictable.

The movie is filled with really innovative shots and use of light, both in the actual making of the movie and within the plot.

It looks like a typical box of Hollywood candy, but "Addicted To Love" is full of baker's chocolate.

Appealing actors alone do not a romantic comedy make.

Audience Reviews for Addicted to Love

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.

Well this is an alright film, its a nice romanctic comedy with a few laughs here and there.
It is predictable throughout the film to be honest but its watchable espicially on a wet sunday evening.
Ryan and Broderick are two people that have lost there partners to other people, Broderick wants his ex back are sort of stalks her in a way but not in a weird way whereas Ryan whants to cause her ex problems because he used her, they end up partning together so broderick can get his love back and ryan ruin her ex's life however towards they realise there views have changed about one another.
Like i said this film is predictable with a few good kaughs and is worth a watch !

Addicted to Love is a sweet film starring Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick.

Two jilted people whom were recently got dumped for another find themselves together trying to get even. This has many good scenes with the wonderful Maureen Stapleton co-starring.
