Addicted to Love
Conscienceless romantic revenge comedy about a couple of rejected lovers who team up to spy on and sabotage the love nest of their respective exes. (The setting-up of a camera obscura as a surveillance device is a nice scene on purely technical grounds.) Meg Ryan, with punkish dark roots and only a motorcycle helmet as a hairstyling tool, never establishes a character beyond her standard ain't-I-cute inebriation. Matthew Broderick has more to work with in the personality department, but his wide-eyed innocence is not up to the requirements. With Kelly Preston, Tcheky Karyo, and Maureen Stapleton; directed by Griffin Dunne. 1997.
