Much better than the movie critics would have you believe Oct. 17 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
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. Vincent, and Family of the Year, just to name those) and the instrumental film score, and both of those are available here on Amazon.

"Thanks for Sharing" opened on just 2 screens for all of Greater Cincinnati last month. The screening I saw this at was not well attended, and I'm being mild (three people, including myself), which did not bode well for its success on the big screen (in fact the movie disappeared after just a couple of weeks). But I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of those movies that finds a second life when the DVD is released. All that aside, don't be spooked by the so-called experts/film critics. "Thanks For Sharing" is a solid movie, and I would recommend you check it out, be it in the theatre if that still is possible or on DVD/Blu-ray.

A Well-Acted Film About Addiction Oct. 29 2013
By David A. Wend - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Very good movie that deserves to be seen but not a comedy. A drama that leaves you with a feeling you can't describe. Jan. 5 2014
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
"It's like trying to quit crack while the pipe is attached to your body." Adam (Ruffalo), Mike (Robbins) and Neil (Gad) are all addicts that are trying to deal with their addictions. Things are going good for Adam until he meets a woman who finds out his secret. Mike encounters problems when his son returns home and Neil's life is crumbling around him because of his problem. This is billed as a romantic comedy but do not be fooled. I would not call this a comedy at all. The movie deals with very serious issues but the acting is the thing that really makes you feel for the characters. Very early on you start to root for everyone in the movie and you live their ups and downs with them. You almost find yourself talking to the screen and yelling NO at certain temptations that face them. This isn't really a movie I can describe you really should see this one to understand. Overall, a very good movie that deserves to be seen but do not expect a comedy. This is a straight drama that leaves you with a feeling you can't describe. I liked it. I give it a B+.

movie gives a inside look at the real world of sex addiction Jan. 10 2014
By Phil C - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
this movie gives the general public a inside look at the real world of sex addiction, the struggles and victories with a addiction that destroys relationships ,peoples lives and is one of the most misunderstood addictions around.most people doubt the validity of the disease and discount it as a excuse for men or woman cheating on their partners. But in reality it is a devastating sickness and compared to alcohol and drug addition one of the toughest if not impossible addictions to get under control. The damage left behind when the person finally attempts to understand and work on living with the disease, leaves all those involved devastated. And the understanding in that its a life long recovery process, requiring therapy ,meetings and help from other addicts. The movie touches on several points and puts a light hearted spin on something so real in the sexualized world we all live in. I hope it helps those not battling the disease a better understanding of a growing problem in our society.

`It's like trying to quit crack while the pipe is attached to your body' Feb. 16 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Stuart Blumberg is a director who takes chances (The Girl Next Door , The Kids Are All Right, Keeping the Faith). Using a screenplay he wrote in conjunction with actor Matt Winston he approaches a subject rarely touched upon (or even known about to the general public) - sex addiction - and with the very capable assistance of a superb cast of actors he brings it off. The film may disturb some, especially those easily offended by the degree of self indulgence that story addresses, but stay with this story to the end and be enlightened and touched by the triumph of the human spirit over seemingly insurmountable odds.

The story centers around three sex addicts who must attend 12 step meetings, have a sponsor, and refrain from onanism or frottage or viewing pornography, sharing their shortcomings at eh meetings of fellow addicts. Adam (Mark Ruffalo) is an environmental consultant whose has been `sober' for five years and has as his sponsor Mike (Tim Robbins), a small business owner married to the supportive Katie (Jowly Richardson) with whom he has a disowned alcoholic son Danny (Patrick Fugit), and who is sponsor to the obese foolhardy voyeuristic frottage obsessed ER Doc Neil (Josh Gad) whose mother Roberta (Carol Kane) has no clue about her son's debilitating condition. The three men - Adam, Mike, and Neil - interact in needy ways and each faces a crisis he must address: Adam finally meets a girl to whom he can possibly relate, breast cancer survivor Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow); Mike must deal with his son Danny's return to the nest; Neil becomes tied to Dede (Pink) who is a sex addict of the first order and desperate to change. It all works in at times confusing ways, but always with a focus on the fragility of the addicted human being - no matter the source of dependency.

The film has its light moments, but it is certainly more of a drama than a comedy - except for the fact that `all of life in the human comedy.' It is good to see a capable group take on a controversial subject and deliver it well. Grady Harp, February 14
