THE PLOT OF Addicted to (8.30pm Sky Premier) is featherweight, but this satellite premiere makes for an enjoyably undemanding 100 minutes all the same. Directed by Griffin Dunne, it stars Meg Ryan (right) and Matthew Broderick as two jilted lovers who plan to exact revenge on their former partners (Tcheky Karyo and Kelly Preston, Mrs John Travolta in real life). Inevitably, during their scheming they gradually find themselves drawn to each other. What with Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail, her fluffy comedy drama with Tom Hanks, just coming out, Ryan is making something of a speciality of these light romances.

"Violent Volcano", tonight's Extreme Earth (9pm National Geographic), focuses on the devastating effect of the volcanic eruptions on the Caribbean island of Montserrat.
