More Info:
  • Peter Keough

    Things bottom out when Zoe not only hooks up with another lover (there is not an ounce of body fat in this movie), but also misses her son’s soccer game. And up until then we were all having a good time.

  • Jesse Hassenger

    Addicted is basically a social-issue melodrama that, minus some curse words, thrusting, and frequent side nudity, could have emerged sometime in the ’50s.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    The film unfortunately depicts black female sexuality, a topic rarely portrayed onscreen, with all the depth and subtlety of a late night Cinemax offering.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    The sudsy quality of the production ensures all the performers look terrific, but aren’t given particularly impressive material to work with.

    Variety Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    Addicted is supposed to be erotica, so perhaps thinking about it too much is unfair, but the film is so uneven (it's both hot and preachy), as well as way too long, that thinking becomes inevitable. Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Watching Addicted is like eating Cheese Whiz straight from the jar. There’s no nutritional value. It’s kind of embarrassing. But it does satisfy a base craving for cheap, immediate sensation.

  • Nicole Herrington

    The actors are uniformly handsome and mostly serviceable, though the same can’t be said about the filmmaking or the writing.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Addicted doesn’t know whether it wants to be a modern-day bodice-ripper, a morality-tinged cautionary tale or a serious snapshot of sexual compulsion. Whatever the case, it fails on all fronts.

  • James Rocchi

    The material swings between the sensual and the puritanical with whiplash-inducing speed; the dialogue all too often has the flat, dead sound of a first draft.

  • Alan Zilberman

    While director Jamie Babbit, who cut her teeth on indie comedies, is an equal- opportunity offender, some jokes land better than others. Still, strong lead performances and an energetic supporting cast elevate the uneven material.

  • Tricia Olszewski

    The laughs are mild, but at least some exist.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Greer and Lyonne play off each other well; the combination of readily corruptible innocence and reluctantly innocent corruption elevate the material. Their badinage and interactions suggest a genuine sisterly relationship, with a long history of resentments, betrayals, and co-dependence. Too bad the filmmakers try too hard at making you laugh, and not hard enough at making you feel.

  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Still, you find yourself rooting for these women, even if their adventures aren’t always up to snuff.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Beyond a few nice closing emotional beats, the whole enterprise plays too desperate and slapdash to whip up the goodwill required to sell such thin, far-fetched material.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nick Prigge

    The film's larger points essentially fall by the wayside in the name of black comedy that's largely without genuine edge.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Kimber Myers

    Save for a few inspired moments (usually at the expense of the city of Fresno), Jamie Babbit’s screwball comedy is cringe-inducing and unfunny. Everyone in front of the camera here deserves better, particular Judy Greer in a rare starring role.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    You can get away with this sort of thing if your humor is sharp, but here it’s mostly sophomoric and rarely surprising.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Small-screen comic talent is all over Fresno, with key players from series including Parks & Rec, Arrested Development and Portlandia teaming up for a tale of two sisters stuck with a hard-to-dispose-of dead body. The feature, sadly, exhibits none of the smarts or agility that fuel those series.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    A mean-spirited farce whose strenuous bad taste seldom translates into actual laughs.

    Variety Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Addicted to Fresno is such a mean-spirited, dull and silly movie that it buries its talented cast under the weight of a horrendous script that they can’t possibly redeem. Full Review
