Thanks for Sharing has its charms, but it's both too shallow and too busy, and not all that perceptive.

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.

At least in the end, we'll always have Shame.

The film never became more than an actor showcase, the story seemed too dramatic to be believeable and let down what otherwise is an interesting and sobering reminder of the power of addiction.

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

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.

Works much better as an act of earnest education than as, well, comedy or drama.

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

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.

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.

When the stories turn more serious, the big moments come off as completely phony.

Awkwardly shifting between drama and humor, this therapy sitcom is schematically plotted, hitting all its dramatic mile markers at just the right moment, rendering everything neat and predictable.

Graham Young

October 4, 2013
An occasionally by turns dull, moving, funny, sobering and oddly explicit drama which feels a bit like Mike Leigh deflating Sex And The City.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Substitute his sex addiction for, say, alcohol or cocaine, and it's a tale that's been told countless times.

Is an exploration of sex addiction, in all its different manifestations, the new flavor of the week in contemporary American cinema?

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

When Hollywood sets out to do a movie about addiction it invariably ends up looking like this.

There are those who would argue that Shame was too severe in its exploration of addiction's destructive power. If that's the case, then Thanks For Sharing can be faulted for being too lightweight.

Thanks to the intelligence of both actors, it starts out OK, with initial dates that have a teasing, flirty quality. But they soon become insufferably cloying ...
| Original Score: 1.5/4

"Thanks for Sharing" ultimately feels empty. It doesn't share enough.
