[W]hen addressing taboo topics, convention is our friend, and this film uses its well-worn genre as a comfortable space for discussion.

You get a very talented ensemble, but the material just isn't strong enough, leading to a lot of star power, but no staying power.

Writer/director Stuart Blumberg got me to care about the characters and their fate to a degree all too rare in medium-sized American dramas.

A likeable, well-meaning muddle of a movie, Thanks For Sharing takes the light road through the serious sex addiction of three New Yorkers.

Thanks for Sharing might best be described as being like Steve McQueen's sex-addiction drama, Shame, if it were rewritten by Neil Simon at his most schmaltzy.

It's frankly exhausting to keep up with these neurotic over-sharers, who are neither serious enough to care about nor humorous enough to laugh at.

This self-conscious oddity can't decide whether it wants to be an indie-earnest reappraisal of the rigours of chronic dependency, or a slightly racy romcom with a saucy topical edge.

Wildly inconsistent in tone, it is impossible to know whether the film aspires to comedy; it's certainly not funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
Graham Young

An occasionally by turns dull, moving, funny, sobering and oddly explicit drama which feels a bit like Mike Leigh deflating Sex And The City.

Next week we shall be drawing parallels between compulsive telly watchers and members of the French Resistance. Ludicrous.

The result plays like a dramatized self-help book: useful if you're in therapy but not much fun for the rest of us.

Thanks For Sharing did not leave me wanting more but less. And demanding a cinematic court order that comedy and drama live apart for a while, or at least until they can share the screen in harmony.

Thanks but no thanks.

Engaging, low-key and thoughtful comedy-drama with a sharply observed script and a trio of terrific performances from Ruffalo, Robbins and Gad.

Tonally the film is all over the rink, but it leaves you more convinced and entertained than you'd expect.

Even if we've never been to a 12-step meeting, an intelligent script and sharp performances help us see ourselves in these characters and situations.

At least most of the cast is appealing, with Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Gad, and Alecia Moore (better known as pop singer Pink) delivering the uninspired dialogue with relative finesse.

Mature sex addiction dramedy has some highs, but also lows.

When Blumberg's film heads into more melodramatic territory, and attempts to impart lessons about what it means to live and love, it feels - and apologies for the phrasing - masturbatory.

The film settles into a more predictable pattern in the second half, when each of its three stories plays out an inevitable conflict that causes their demons to manifest themselves in melodramatic ways before allowing for a chance at redemption.
