ADDICTED (2014) – My rating: 7/10

AddictedAddicted is a real eye opener into the world of sex addiction.  Zoe Reynard, played by Sharon Leal, appears happily married with a gorgeous husband and 2 lovely children. She owns her own company that solicits other companies to display her client’s art work everywhere they are associated. Zoe’s mother, Nina is played by Maria Howell.  As moms go, Nina  is extremely passive and lives with them, playing the role of nanny, because Jason and Zoe have high powered jobs.   Zoe’s husband, Jason Reynard is played by Boris Kodjoe who is an architect who works some late nights but still finds time for the kids.  I found Addicted to be a little slow, up to a point.  Zoe’s excessive sex-capades became too redundant and boring.  Her visits to Dr. Marcella Spencer, played by Tasha Smith, seemed hopeless and only served minimal purpose in Zoe’s life.  For a while, Addicted was interesting but after it was established that Zoe has a sex problem, we needed to move on.  Some of her manipulations were obvious and made a likable character unlikable.  The end was believable and surprising hopeful.  All the men in this movie are eye candy and the acting was excellent.  Garrett Hines who played Benny, was Zoe’s first lover and Tyson Beckford who played Corey was her second lover, after Jason.  Both Benny and Corey seemed just as addicted to her as she was to them.  I didn’t like the mother, Nina.  I felt she had no real connection to her daughter and was too passive.  All in all, the ending helped make the movie acceptable, despite the obvious redundancy.  I would wait for the DVD.
