Reeling - Rene Rodriguez

Thanks for Sharing (R)

Thanks for Sharing, a wobbly comedy-drama about sex addicts, has the unfortunate timing of arriving after Steve McQueen’s searing Shame, which explored the subject seriously and without compromise, and next week’s Don Jon, in which director Joseph Gordon-Levitt mines a similar theme with sharp humor and intelligence. By comparison, director Stuart Blumberg’s movie, which features a surprisingly starry cast, comes off as superficial and trite.
