Editorial Reviews

Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad and Alecia "Pink" Moore shine in an unconventional romantic comedy that follows the topsy-turvy lives and loves of three obsessive characters: an overachieving environmental consultant (Ruffalo), a stubborn small- business owner (Robbins) and a wisecracking ER doctor (Gad). They meet in a support group- and set into motion a life-changing journey filled with laughter and surprises.

Format:DVD
"Thanks For Sharing" (2012 release; 112 min.) is billed as a comedy-drama, but really is mostly a drama about three guys in a 12 step program to deal with their sex addiction. Mike (played by Tim Robbins) is the 'elder statesman' of the group, who seems to have everything completely under control. Adam (played by Mark Ruffalo) is the middle-aged guy who's been on the wagon for 5 years, and now meets and falls for Phoebe (played by Gwyneth Paltrow). Then there is Neil (played by Josh Gad), a twenty-some loveable slob who is desperately trying to get on the wagon. He befriends Dede (played by Alecia Moore, a/k/a P!ink). Last but certainly not least there is Danny (played by Patrick Fugit), the 30 yr. old son of Mike and his wife, returning home unexpectedly after years away. To tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie has gotten a lot of less than positive reviews by the so-called experts/film critics, and hence I went to see this with low expectations. As it turns out, this movie played out very nicely, in particular when staying away from the comedy aspects (which weren't all that funny), and instead focusing on the impact of addiction to lives and relationships. The performances were generally speaking pretty darn good, but for me the best work is done by P!nk, and even more so by Patrick Fugit, who you may remember as the wide-eyed teenager in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous" back in 2000. Fugit is now a man, and his role as the long-lost son is the most memorable in the movie for me. Please note that the movie has a great soundtrack, both as to the songs (featuring the Heavy, Elvis Costello, St.

Format:Blu-ray
THANKS FOR SHARING is another in a long line of movies about addicts and the effects of the addiction on family & friends. However, because alcohol and drug addiction has been presented over and over and over…this film is about sex addiction. That adds an element of titillation that is missing from movies about alcoholics!

If my tone seems a bit dismissive, it’s because THANKS FOR SHARING is a very skin-deep movie that mostly pretends to have something deep or meaningful to say. It’s a breezy drama/comedy about a serious and damaging topic. The movie is not without value or interest…not at all. But I want to get out of the way right at the beginning that for all it accomplishes, one thing it does NOT do is really make me understand much about sex addiction. As one character in the movie says (and I’m paraphrasing): “Is sex addiction a real thing? I thought it was what husbands used as an excuse when they get caught cheating.” While I’d like to think my attitude was a bit more understanding, this is a subject that is a bit fuzzy to me. Drugs/alcohol I can comprehend. An alcoholic drinking a lot is bad because they damage their health and do dangerous things. A sex addict does WHAT exactly?

Anyway, THANKS FOR SHARING is more of a relationship movie. We have our lead character, Mark Ruffalo, a recovering sex addict (5 years sober) who has spent a sexless existence with no home access to the internet, no TV and full of little tricks to help him focus on his “sobriety.” Now he’s interested in venturing into the dating world again, and he meets Gwyneth Paltrow, a cancer survivor who has been burned by previous relationships with addicts. The two spend a lot of time smiling at each other and laughing at each other’s bad jokes and terrible repartee.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well-Acted Film About Addiction October 29, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
My wife and I decided to see Thanks For Sharing having read a synopsis of the plot online. Although the film is listed as a comedy/drama (I have even see it called a romantic comedy) it is more serious drama. (Spoilers follow) The subject of the film is sex addiction and the film's main focus is on three characters: Adam (Mark Ruffalo) who is a successful consultant, Mike (Tim Robbins) a small business owner who was addicted to alcohol and has a son who is addicted to pain killers and Neil (Josh Gad) who is a doctor. Adam has been a sober sex addict for five years when he meets Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow) whom he falls in love with but can't find a way to tell her about his addiction. Mike's son Danny returns home having served time in jail and is welcomes by his mother (Joey Richardson) but not Mike who thinks his son weak in fighting his addiction. The comic relief in the film is provided by Neil who has some funny scenes pedaling around on a bike. Pink has an excellent supporting role as Dede, a hair stylist who needs help navigating from her sex addiction and finds a soul mate in Neil. (end spoilers)

The film follows the three main characters as they succeed in controlling their addiction, falter and struggle to pull their lives back together. The screen play by director Stuart Blumberg takes a hard look at addition and living with the disease daily and how it can destroy relationships. The film has wonderful performances by all of the actors involved. Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins are especially excellent in their roles appearing pillars of strength but maintaining vulnerability as they face their addiction and help other overcome theirs. You care about all of the characters in the film and become involved in their lives, successes and failures. Thanks For Sharing is a film that should not be missed but I would categorize it as a drama that deals frankly with addiction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a romantic comedy!
The box describes this as laugh out load funny. As a romantic comedy. Other than a few laughs, it's not funny. It's actually kind of depressing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time- clean the closets instead, anything else!
Boring, slow, cheesy, waste of time. I love all the actors but this movie didn't offer anything much. Glad I didn't see it in the theater.
