Addicted To Love
Warner Bros. / 1996 / 96 Mins / Rated PG


MOVIE
Addicted to love, strange movie. It's the story of Sam (Matthew Broderick) and Maggie (Meg Ryan), two people who come together after their respective partners Linda (Kelly Preston) and Anton (Tchecky Karyo) dump each of them. 

Sam wants his old girlfriend back and Maggie just wants to exact revenge on her old boyfriend, so they move into an old condemned building across from where the 2 ex's are living and precede to make Anton's life a living hell. 

What follows is a story of cockroaches, broken arms & ribs, kissing monkeys and perfume squirting kids and new romance in between. Of course like usual I won't spoil it for you, but it does become pretty predictable. You'll also love the maggot story by the way.

VIDEO
Pretty standard fare actually, the movie is generally clean and is generally sharp for 90% of the time.

No MPEG artifacts were present at all. There was also not much noise in the original print.

Addicted To Love is framed at 1:85:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is an Single Sided, Single Layer disc.

AUDIO
Addicted to love has been mixed as with all Warner discs I have seen so far in Dolby Digital 5.1 which as always is a good thing. The sound in the movie itself was quite good, the rear channels were used quite frequently, especially during scenes where music is included and sound effects in the rear channels are utilized well when needed also.
EXTRAS
Addicted to Love includes what I would consider an average set of extras, these include the theatrical trailer, notes about the principal cast and filmmakers.

Subtitles included:
English, Arabic, Closed Captioned

FINAL THOUGHTS
If your looking for a fun addition to you DVD collection, consider Addicted to Love. While it's no reference type DVD to show off to your friends like some other movies, it's still a good show and has just enough extras to put it into the above average pile.
