Addicted to Love

The plot of this film is beyond reason. Kelly Preston and Matthew Broderick are boyfriend/girlfriend and are incredibly in love. Nothing seems to be in the way of their relationship fully maturing. Then suddenly, Broderick gets a note from Preston saying that she has fallen in love with another man. Broderick, rather steamed, goes to the abandon apartment across the street from Preston's and begins spying on her so when their obviously temporary relationship breaks up, he'll be ready. Enter Meg Ryan, a person in the same situation as Broderick except she is the ex-fiancee of Preston's new lover and wants revenge. If this ridiculous plot can be overlooked, Addicted to Love is a quite charming and funny romantic comedy. Ryan, in particular, has some very funny moments.
