Woodruff's direction is smooth enough on a technical level, but the film's storytelling has little dimension, even for a melodrama.

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

Addicted is the kind of film for which the Alan Smithee pseudonym was invented.

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

"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.

The film lingers so lovingly over Zoe's many sexual exploits that one almost feels disappointed when it becomes clear that the film is about to turn into a lecture. Erotica is best when it doesn't take itself too seriously.
