    Thanks for Sharing is all over the place trying to find a tone, but it knows where its heart is. show more

    Walter Addiego San Francisco Chronicle

    The characters are mostly likable, and despite some comic sallies the film takes a compassionate stance toward them. But it feels like a glossy, overly neat take on what should be an explosive topic. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Ultimately, it's the romance that feels forced and phony, not the group meetings, the confessions, the anguished moments alone. show more

    Sometimes, less is more. Case in point: Thanks for Sharing, a film that’s a little too eager to be ID’d as a “sex addiction dramedy.” As a result, solidly grounded performances from almost all the cast members wind up playing second fiddle to navel-gazing. show more

    David Rooney The Hollywood Reporter

    Too much of what happens as the characters undergo their various brushes with failure and redemption feels predetermined, slapping what aims to be a much savvier film with a debilitating touch of the formulaic. show more

    Thanks for Sharing can’t quite find its footing as either a drama or a comedy, and near the end it’s actively sliding off the rails. show more

    And yet: Thanks for Sharing is such a relaxed, good-humored movie that it's tough to complain about its tendency to ... well, overshare. show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    It’s a tribute to the script by Stuart Blumberg and Matt Winston, the directorial aplomb of Blumberg and the genuine performances of the cast that most of the time, we care about these people, we believe their problems are real and we want them to get the help they so desperately need. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    See Steve McQueen’s “Shame” (2011) if you want a sense of how destructive this sickness can be to the soul. See Thanks for Sharing if you want to know what people can do about it. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    Although the characters are three-dimensional, the simultaneous crises and last-act resolutions are a little too neat for a movie about the messiness of life. show more

    There is a lot to like about this movie. The topic of sex and love addiction is portrayed accurately and with sensitivity. I laughed...a lot...I also got choked up and found myself really caring about what happened to the people in this film. Many great acting roles. Go see this movie!

    It strips bear the protective layers we all have hiding our addictions, from chocolate to booze to sex, and why we need help from others. and how we in turn can help others. Nicely done. Good to see Robbins back in the saddle.

    I hope real-life addicts are not as tortured as these poor souls. It\'s \"getting on the wagon and falling off the wagon\" over and over and over, and for varying lengths of time. A very heavy movie!

    I loved the movie. It was written and performed with such authenticity. It brought humor and intelligence and seriousness to the theme of the plot. I hope it does well with the general public. Congratulations to the actors and the writers.
