Kind of like a romantic comedy version of the Count of Monte Cristo

  • Jun 11, 2011
Ever wonder what would happen if somebody combined the Count of Monte Cristo with a chick flick? Probably not, but the result would be something like addicted to love. The plot features Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick planning to get revenge on their exes. They devise outlandish and creative schemes to ruin their lives. At some points the revenge schemes are just cruel, but usually Addicted to Love is filled with funny jokes and outlandishness. It also has a decent plot arch and doesn't end too early - at the obvious point when most romantic comedies would end - but develops the characters a bit further. I only wish the revenge had been meted out equally to both exes. The guy, Anton, suffers a lot, but the girl, Linda, barely at all. Still, this is a great classic revenge romance and I'd highly recommend it for fans of romantic comedies.
