Dave M (ru) wrote: There are many reasons that a given movie can be called entertaining: It's dramatic, it's funny, it's cute, it's educational, it's original, it has great acting, it has an interesting story, etc., etc. "Thanks for Sharing" (R, 1:52) has all of the above. It's a movie that explores the very real, but little-understood problem of sex addiction. This is not a movie (or a problem) about people who can't stop "doing it". What this is all about is people who act out their sexuality in ways that are inappropriate and/or compulsive.The story follows three sex addicts who are in various stages of dealing with their problem. Mark Ruffalo is Adam, a man who is five years "sober" (as addicts call it, even if their addiction has nothing to do with alcohol), but has gone so far as not even allowing himself to have any intimate or even romantic relationships with anyone... that is, until he meets Gwyneth Paltrow's Phoebe. Tim Robbins plays Mike, Adam's sponsor and the leader of their recovery group. Josh Gad is both funny and heartbreaking as Neil, a single doctor who is just beginning to grapple with his addiction.Adam and Phoebe are adorable together, but we wonder if their relationship is doomed from the start. Phoebe tells Adam that she used to date an alcoholic and promised herself she would never be with an addict again... but doesn't realize that sexual addiction is "a thing". Adam has had such a problem with sexual addiction (and closed himself off from women for so long), that he may not have the capacity for a healthy romantic relationship. Mike has been a great help to Adam, but he has problems of his own. Mike has very high standards and shows disdain for everyone who doesn't live up to them - including his adult son who has recently come back into his life and claims to have kicked his previous drug habit. Neil is in a race against time to get his addiction under control before he loses everything. He finds an unlikely friend and mutually-supportive relationship in Dede, played marvelously by Alecia Moore, better known as the rock star Pink."Thanks for Sharing" sheds light on a problem also dealt with in 2011's "Shame", but is less voyeuristic and more accessible to a mass audience. This film is educational without being preachy, funny without being disrespectful to the subject matter and entertaining without letting you forget what's at stake for each of these characters. Their problems feel real, the humor feels natural and the acting is just terrific. I thank writer-director Stuart Blumberg for sharing this very compelling film with us and give "Thanks for Sharing" an "A".

Joseph W (ag) wrote: This movie was not designed to be an A list movie, this movie was designed to be a B or a C movie at best and it delivers, like the first movie it has an overly ridiculous plot that is akin to a wiley cayote plot , cheesy story lines, outrages cosstumes, but this is what makes the whole movie worth while/
Kade C (mx) wrote: Though it has significant flaws, you can't deny it brings a fitting close to the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader story. Not the best in the trilogy, but good enough.
Naomi G (gb) wrote: Virtually indistinguishable from The Dead Pool in spite of the slightly different stories. Harry must stop someone who is like himself, and like the guy in The Dead Pool, but who doesn't have a badge, so can't flagrantly violate US constitutional procedure. What Siegel and Eastwood were trying to sell, they sold, because since the release of their flicks, there have been widespread changes in laws and law enforcement in the United States.Eastwood's beau Locke is in the film who is a lot like Ireland is to Bronson. Maybe that's why Harry shows a feminist touch, don't worry, he gives feminism a new conservative touch.
