On the surface Adam, an over-achieving environmental consultant, Mike, a long-married small-business owner, and Neil, 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; Mike's efforts to control his wife, Katie, and son, Danny, as tightly as he does his impulses are tearing the family apart; and Neil is still deeply in denial when befriended by Dede, who has just begun to take her own small steps back to health. As they navigate the rocky shores of recovery, Adam, Mike and Neil become a family that encourages, infuriates and applauds each other on the journey toward a new life.
Comedy Romantic - This is a romantic comedy-drama whose main characters are sex
addicts, so needless to say that, while never overly raunchy, this is
a film meant for an adult audience. There is nonstop language and
some graphic sex scenes. Fans of the lead stars Mark Ruffalo,
Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad, and singer Pink will enjoy.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; well over 30 S-words; 3 GD's; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Hits and pushes. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Banter and wisecracks, often suggestive.
Roger EbertFull Review Average 'Thanks for Sharing' is well done for what it is, but that doesn't mean we should give credence to its pathologizing of sex under the rubric of recovery and conformist groupthink.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average The story is intermittently funny and cleverly written.
Washington PostFull Review Very Good It's surprisingly wise, funny and affecting, thanks in part to a sensitive script, and in part to a strong ensemble cast.
NY PostFull Review Poor This comedy is cringe-inducingly lame and the dramatic turns are visible as far in advance as utility poles on the prairie.
