"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.

Its a must see if you`re a Mark Ruffalo fan, he never disappoints, all the male actors are very good at making you feel for them, even though you want to dislike them. Its a funny, sweet, touching film, that could have gone horribly wrong, with a tricky topic. Its funny in all the right places and touching without being sickening or false. I really enjoyed it, just wanna give Mark Ruffalo a really big hug, but then I always do..

Ok you hear that someone has sex addiction and you either exclaim "that's just an excuse" or "oh poor you." Of all the possible debilitating addictions that is a problem for people, it seems like this might be one of the ones that doesn't get a big piece of the sympathy pie. That was my way of thinking a little too. As I begun to watch, it was a little like "I wish I had enough sex to get addicted to!" But after watching Thanks for Sharing I found myself believing that this compulsion might be one of worst. The film tackles with the issue of not just sex addiction but the nature of having an addictive personally and how honest you are with others and especially yourself when trying to stay sober. The film deals with not just the problem of having too much sex with lots of people, cheating on your partner but those who fall into the category of sexual offender as well. It seems that the marketing for this film especially its cover design it a little ill conceived. This might lead a lot of people to be disappointed. If they sit down to watch a light hearted romantic comedy but end up watching a film about a bunch of tortured souls whom have to fight against a basic human imperative when dealing with the other big issues that surround it and lead them into the destructive behaviour that has derailed their life. Honestly this has to be one of the most honest and eye opening films I have watched in the long while and an additional surprise was that Pink is actually pretty damn good in this film and I actually look forward to see her in more films.

Given this film's subject matter there was a danger this could be tacky, but the scenarios seem real and the script is well played by the cast, even Pink! (never knew she could act). Sex addiction is sensitively portrayed, but they're not afraid to have some fun with it too. Can think of few better ways to pass a couple of hours....

I was expecting a somewhat entertainment comedy about sex addicts (think Don Jon [DVD] [2013]), but what I got was a thoughtful and tragic drama about the darkest moments and 12-step recovery programme of three independent men (and one woman, played by glorious Pink) in the present day NYC. Mark Ruffalo's 5-years-sober hero is ready to fall in love. Gwyneth Paltrow's cancer survivor is obsessed on diet and exercise. We all have our guilty secrets and addictions. But there is hope, director Stuart Blumberg promises us.

I am surprised the film did not get a positive reaction from the critics. In my opinion, it's a solid 4-stars film, actors are very good and blend organically, the chemistry between male-female leads is absolutely believable - the ensemble of actors is very talented (praise goes to Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad and Pink!), I thought, which makes up for occasionally weak script. It's a funny (especially when Neil, played by Josh Gad is doing his bit), involving, occasionally heart-breaking film, that could have gone dreadfully wrong (bearing in mind the topic). It made me laugh out loud a number of times, at the same time there were a few things which were hard to watch (in the end, everybody is fighting his or her demons).

It's an intelligent film, thought-provoking and challenging, perhaps a bit cheesy (when wooden Gwyneth Paltrow is involved, she is wooden as a wooden spoon). Recommended!

P.S. Just on a side note - there are no subtitles and no special features on the DVD.
