On the surface Adam (Ruffalo), an over-achieving environmental consultant, Mike (Robbins), a long-married small-business owner, and Neil (Gad), a wisecracking emergency-room doctor, have little in common. But all are in different stages of dealing with addiction. Confident and successful in his career, Adam is afraid to allow love back into his life, even if that means losing a chance to start over with smart, beautiful and accomplished Phoebe (Paltrow); Mike's efforts to control his wife, Katie (Richardson), and son, Danny (Fugit), as tightly as he does his impulses are tearing the family… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Be warned: viewers may experience a violent urge to shake the characters, one by one, and tell them to get a life."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"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."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"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."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"Next week we shall be drawing parallels between compulsive telly watchers and members of the French Resistance. Ludicrous."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"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."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"After the bleak brilliance of 'Shame,' this is an almost sunny look at sexual addiction. Almost."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"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."
‑ Dominic Corry,
"Wildly inconsistent in tone, it is impossible to know whether the film aspires to comedy; it's certainly not funny."
‑ CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
"The result plays like a dramatized self-help book: useful if you're in therapy but not much fun for the rest of us."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"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."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Thanks for Sharing is never quite crazy or funny enough to transcend its "disease-of-month" template."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A likeable, well-meaning muddle of a movie, Thanks For Sharing takes the light road through the serious sex addiction of three New Yorkers."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"An occasionally by turns dull, moving, funny, sobering and oddly explicit drama which feels a bit like Mike Leigh deflating Sex And The City."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"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."
‑ Brian Henry Martin, UTV
