ADDICTED TO FRESNO REVIEWED
“Addicted to Fresno” has an amazing cast. Unfortunately, that doesn’t translate into a great movie. What starts as a rather fun murder comedy involving a sex maniac and her lesbian sister turns into a trite joke-a-rama. Most of the humor doesn’t land, as it gets in the way of the central focus. Judy Greer playing a registered sex offender trying to not get hit with a manslaughter charge is fascinating. All of the stuff with the Pet Cremation service and Natasha Lyonne feels extraneous. Pick it up if you’re curious.

The Plot Thus Far

When Shannon jeopardizes her fresh new start in life by accidentally killing a hotel guest after a sudden relapse, Martha takes it as an opportunity to fix their relationship and helps her sister cover up the crime.
