WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Addicted To Love is a clever comedy that stars Matthew Broderick as Sam, a lovelorn young astronomer who follows Linda (Kelly Preston) to New York, only to find that she is living with another man. Moving into an abandoned loft across the alley from her apartment, Sam keeps an eye on Linda via a lights and lens device that projects her apartment onto a wall in his loft. But soon, Sam is joined by Maggie (Meg Ryan), the disgruntled ex-fiancé of Anton (Tchecky Karyo)—Linda’s new man. Together, Maggie and Sam spy on the soap opera of their exes’ lives and devise a hilarious and diabolical plan of revenge to exact on Linda and Anton.
