PLOT SUMMARY

Good-natured astronomer Sam is devastated when the love of his life, Linda, leaves him for a suave Frenchman named Anton. He therefore does what every other normal dumpee would do; go to New York and set up home in the abandoned building opposite his ex-girlfriend's apartment, intent on winning her back and waiting until she decides to leave her current lover. What Sam does not count on is being joined several weeks later by ultra hip tomboy Maggie (Meg Ryan), a photographer and motor-cyclist who is determined to get revenge on Anton, her ex-fiance. Hostile at first, the two of them eventually join forces in an attempt to separate the couple, and ruin Anton's life. However, complications ensue when Sam and Maggie start falling for each other.

____________________________________________

Addicted to Love is a romantic comedy featuring two extremely amiable stars. Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick are both competent, inoffensive stars, who (generally) make competent inoffensive movies.

Sam (Matthew Broderick) is an astronomer whose girlfriend Linda (Kelly Preston) goes to New York to teach and decides to stay, dumping him in the process. Naturally, he goes to see her only to hear a man's voice coming from inside her hotel room. He decides to stay and observe her and her new man Anton (Tcheky Karyo), and takes up residence in the abandoned building opposite their apartment. During the first few days, he encounters Maggie (Meg Ryan), who it turns out, was engaged to Anton.

Maggie and Sam team up to try and split up the happy couple, doing whatever it takes. Sam is obsessed with winning Linda back and Maggie wants Anton humiliated and destroyed.

If you have ever seen a romantic comedy then you'll know exactly what happens in the end, but I won't spoil it for those who can't guess.

This film is no "When Harry Met Sally" but it is a nice film. It's is amusing without being fall-on-the-floor hilarious and it is sweet without being too sickly.

Meg Ryan is gorgeous and as good as she always is. Matthew Broderick is funny and charming and Tcheky Karyo is really rather good as the character we hate and then feel sorry for.

All in all it's a really nice film and perfect for watching with the one you love.
