Thanks For Sharing (2012)

Thanks For Sharing was announced as a romantic comedy, but like the previous movie written by the now director Stuart Blumberg, "The Kids Are Alright", and despite having a light start, the movie soon evolves into a deep drama about a real problem, a sickness, that is sex addiction, and that is no fun at all. We are presented with three storylines, three segments that tie together in the core of sex addiction, each one leaded by a different actor: Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Josh Gad. Unfortunately, we cannot put all three on the same level. Ruffalo and Robbins both have a good performance, their characters feel real, relevant and are amazingly developed, and plus Mark Ruffalo has Gwineth Paltrow by his side, so there is quite an head start. As for Josh Gad's storyline, its identity falls short, getting closer to tv drama, even if the comic relief he carries throughout the movie is necessary for balancing the darkest moments of our other characters, thus making the movie easier to watch. Thanks for Sharing is a good movie, even if purely commercial in formula, that will legitimately have some impact on the viewer, and opening an after debate for how people's personal problems keep changing through times.
