Castille Landon’s “Perfect Addiction,” based on the book of the same name, revolves around a girl in a toxic relationship who transitions into a much healthier relationship while working on the perfect revenge against her toxic ex with her current boyfriend. The movie is unnecessarily erotic with little to no depth. My girl Sienna jumps into the arms of another boyfriend instead of investing in therapy. Her revenge motive is clear, as she wants to beat Jax at her own game. She was a very successful boxing trainer and, because of Jax, she never thought of turning pro, even after defeating another champion and the fighters she regularly trained.
