    The main problem with this film is that it splits time between three different sets of couples so we barely get a glimpse into their lives and their struggles with their disease. This is most evident by our main character barely ever being onscreen, and most of his issues aren't touched upon. Ruffalo's character struggles with his addiction and honorably refrains while in a relationship, charting the new waters between lust and love. Still, we don't know him as a character, so his growth doesn't really interest us. We don't know who he was before when he was suffering from his addiction, or how he eventually starting going to treatment, or what steps he should have taken with his love interest. The other two storylines are more fleshed out, but only one really peaks interest. Robbins is married with a son who he most atone towards, since he was a drunk and a womanizer while he was a child. This is an impressive storyline that shows the bleak reality of addiction and its effect on loved ones. Josh Gad and Pink play newly anointed sex addicts who navigate friendship and each grow substantially over the course of the film. Theirs is the most fulfilling, funny, and heartwarming storyline, and the only entertaining part of this film. Otherwise it's a very watered down drama that only tells some aspects of this disease.

    Life is a journey you never have to take alone. Good drama/comedy film! The movie depicts a surprisingly complete spectrum of victories, failures, and facts of recovery: meetings, sponsorship, relapses into addiction, a "crash", a "crash and burn", job loses, near relapses, just-in-time phone calls, phone calls which went unanswered at critical times, suspicious girlfriends, wary wives, male addicts, female addicts, addict parents having to confront the affects of their addiction on their own children, addicts having to deal with their abusive parents, starting a healthy relationship with another addict in recovery or with a non-addict, the confusion caused by sex after long abstinence from sex, multiple addictions, and, above all, a message of hope and freedom. It's all there, and it's there in a surprisingly compact story. The main cast were great and their characters were interesting. More importantly, the film didn't suffer from the current trait of being too long for the storyline. A romantic comedy that brings together three disparate characters who are learning to face a challenging and often confusing world as they struggle together against a common demon: sex addiction.

    3 1/4 stars--This story had real potential, and some really good actors. I was expecting a good film. But, the movie is just a standard rom-com with an attempt at a good story plugged in. The end the movie tries to become something special, but it is too little, too late. The movie just falls flat, even the good actors can't save it. I didn't hate it, but I expected so much more..

    Much better than I expected. Unusual topic for a rom com, being about addiction. I can't stand Pink, but have to give her credit for playing a good part. Emily Meade as Becky was the standout for me. She had a fairly small role, but was very moving. I really warned to know more about her character.
