October 16, 2014
Woodruff's direction is smooth enough on a technical level, but the film's storytelling has little dimension, even for a melodrama.

The actors are uniformly handsome and mostly serviceable, though the same can't be said about the filmmaking or the writing.

"Addicted" doesn't know whether it wants to be a modern-day bodice-ripper, a morality-tinged cautionary tale or a serious snapshot of sexual compulsion. Whatever the case, it fails on all fronts.

"Addicted" doesn't fail because it wants to provide steamy, soapy melodrama to a mainstream audience; its faults are a function of its judgment, not of its genre ... more Cinemax than cinematic.
