Addicted to His Love (1988) movie review

What Price Love?


Larry Hogan (Barry Bostwick) is a bad boy.

Oh, he's the kind of plausible rogue who women love, because like the most effective rogues, and unlike the average joe, he does know what women want, and how to act with women. Unfortunately he's a moral and ethical vacuum. He knows because it's his life's work.

Larry Hogan is a con man who has been preying on women for years. Now it's time for the women to ignore their bruised pride and embarrassment and seek justice.

Addicted to His Love

Addicted to His Love is an unassuming film about a criminal and his victims, and the choices that have to be made in order to bring him to justice. We see him working his magic, playing on the heart strings of the ladies, and we see the ladies finally standing up for themselves.

Sympathetic and at times amusing, well worth a look, remembering these characters are still out there today.
