Weekend Box Office: Thanks For Sharing

By Debbie Schlussel

Because of the myriad Jewish holidays, I did not see most of the new movies debuting in theaters today. (I did not see “Prisoners” or “Battle of the Year,” but I will try to see the former later this weekend and post my review afterward.) In fact, I only saw one, “Thanks For Sharing,” and I wish I hadn’t. It’s more like, “No Thanks For Sharing. TMI [Too Much Information].”


Is America hurting from some shortage of sex addiction/masturbation movies? Seems like the pervs in Hollywood must think so, because I’ve seen more than one movie recently involving those topics. This one and “Don Jon,” which will come out in theaters next week, and my review will be posted then.

I wasn’t sure what the point of this movie was . . . other than to provide paychecks for the equally loathsome Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, and Josh Gad, and to give Gwyneth Paltrow the opportunity to strip and show off her flat-chested body in lingerie. Yes, we know–a trainer paid tens of thousands of dollars to spend several hours a day in a gym with Gwyneth works. Thanks for the tip. Paltrow, per usual, is more than just a little bit annoying. She’s mega-annoying.

The story: three men (Ruffalo, Robbins, and Gad) are in different stages of recovery from sex addiction. They were all ordered to attend twelve steps meetings through court orders. Ruffalo has been “over” his sex addiction for five years, Robbins for several (he gave his wife Hepatitis C), and Gad has just started. It follows them as they struggle to avoid sex addiction and build monogamous relationships (Ruffalo with Paltrow, and Gad with someone other than his five fingers). To add to the annoying part, the singer Pink a/k/a Alecia Moore also joins in as a sex addict. We are the world, we are the children, blah, blah, blah.

The movie is not only disgusting, stupid, and completely pointless, but it’s a total waste of ten-plus bucks and nearly two hours of your life you’ll never get back.

Avoid that mistake, and STAY. AWAY. Just awful.


Watch the trailer . . .

There is no such thing as “sex addiction”. It’s called bad character of a sex-pervert. Victimization sells.

I never heard of Josh Gad. What a weird name!

Gwyneth Paltrow, one of the most annoying and talentless benefactors of nepotism, also admitted that after those strenuous training session she makes her assistant go into the shower at the gym and wipe down all the water because she doesn’t wanna touch “other people’s water”. Can you get more Gwyneth Paltrow than that even if you tried??

Last month when there was a charitable cook-book author tour and the REAL cook book authors got annoyed because heaps of people came to have that pompous fraud sign her ghost-written books while other tables had tumbleweeds drifting by them. One, right next to hers, made sure she had a heaping plate of stinky meat at the edge of her table so the aroma could waft up Paltrow’s stuck-up, patrician, macrobiotic nose. Loved that!

I think it was a vegan book and she’s not even vegan anymore (like that fraud-pervert Bill Clinton!). Keep pounding your vegan chest even thou’ you can’t be one anymore. THAT’s why people make fun of fraud vegans!!

I used to think it was just me who saw her correctly & I am pleased that people think she’s just as I always imagined her. Must be correct if so many feel that way and not just some outlier.

    Good take on Paltrow. Flat-chested women seem to be chock-full of bad karma. In my experience, anyway.

    Prometheus on September 21, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Josh’s name used to be GADZOOKS but he shortened it….

    It is just ME AGAIN on September 21, 2013 at 1:26 pm

They could have made a shorter movie: “Marriage is dead.”

Liberals don’t believe in it. So what’s the point of warning us about “sex addiction?” If marriage no longer sacred, it shouldn’t matter whom you sleep with or how many sexual partners you have.

For Hollywood to make a fuss about the benefit of monogamy is truly the understatement of the decade.

NormanF on September 20, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    Yep, marriage is dead for the most part. The stats are there, the homo agenda works out well with that as well.
    There’s a twisted reality based series on hbo, I think about sharing couples in California. Just weird as hell. They get territorial about the most odd things too. Pecking orders abound, and it’s the most twisted thing you’ll ever watch. A new word I wasn’t aware of until watching it was polyamorous. That’s for everything is in play. Period. Might be the title of the show. I couldn’t watch more than 5 minutes of it without wanting to vomit.

I actually like Pink. Seeing her in concert was a great experience. But now I’m not sure about seeing her movie. Movies get alot of hype if they star Pop singers who usually have small parts.

Matthew on September 20, 2013 at 5:55 pm

So, is this movie Hollywood’s effort to normalize “sex addiction?” You know, to put a sympathetic face on guys who have absolutely no morals. Perhaps this is an effort to help the Clintons, since Bill supposedly “suffers” from sex addiction and Hillary’s buddy Anthony Weiner needs to be rehabbed in the arena of public opinion.

Of course, real people know that “sex addiction” is just BS – an inability or a complete lack of interest in controlling oneself. I guess it just becomes an “addiction” when you get caught.

Take Weiner for example, in an interview yesterday with fellow pervert Geraldo Rivera he blames the MEDIA for why he lost the NYC mayoral race. Not his own complete lack of judgement and self-control, no, the MEDIA for bringing it to the public.

I would rather watch paint dry than watch leftist morons Tim Robbins and Mark Ruffalo “act”. I remember Joely Richardson in her role on the very weird show Nip Tuck and Gwyneth Paltrow is as bland as a plain baked potato. Speaking of her I still for the life of me cannot fathom why Hollyweird thinks that this dope is so beautiful. Unless they think that vapid, skinny nuts who name their spawn after fruit beautiful then she’s gold. We know that there is no such thing as sex addiction. Despite dumb movies like Thanks For Sharing. Creeps like Slick Willy Clinton and Anthony(small)Weiner are just that creeps. It is also funny that little Weiner is blaming the media for him imploding. The same media that covers liberal for butt like Rosie O’Donnell covering the buffet at Golden Coral. We can’t blame idiots for not being responsible or their own behavior. Not when they spend 10-12 bucks to watch crapola like Gwyneth in a bra and panties.

This reminds me of that trash show SHOWTIME showed a year or so ago called POLYAMORY which describe a “married” couple having more than one partner they adamantly were in “love” with. I was like WTF!? I mean how can you be in love with more than one woman/man at the sametime. I only watch two episodes and said to myself, “Western and in particular American culture is slowly dying when a show can be shown as “mainstream” like this piece of crap”. God help us all.

Mario on September 20, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    That’s the show I saw, it was horrible.

    samurai on September 21, 2013 at 10:30 am

Gwyneth Paltrow’s parents are producer Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner. Bruce died in 2002.

Gwyneth was 30 at the time. Her first movie was released a few days after she turned 19.

Here is a Hollywood nepotism list:

    A simple and iniegltlent point, well made. Thanks!

    Chacidy on May 23, 2014 at 11:17 pm

BTW, Debbie, how come you did not give props to Moe of The Three Stooges? It is his birthday.

AR on September 21, 2013 at 12:04 am

B-dee, b-dee, b-dee … that’s all folks!

Credits roll
House lights come up
No one left in theatre

Hollywood – “Hey, we got a winner!”

Josh Gad, sex addict. Nope. Sex addicts are usually hot guys or hot girls. Sex addiction is a problem of opportunity.

Fleiter on September 21, 2013 at 12:09 pm

Pray tell who wants to see a movie about so called sex addiction? I just love this society. We’ve never done a thing wrong with all our “addictions.”

Awww, no love for the author of “Goop”, Princess Paltrow?

Thank you Hollywood for putting at least 3 of the most annoying people in the world in one movie, Paltrow, Robbins, and Ruffalo.

Hmmmmmmmm, . . .

A few comments from the Puerto Rican Jewish Peanut Gallery.

(i) I have no problem with flat chested women. Two of the hottest looking women I’ve ever seen in my life were flat chested, one is pretty famous, the other is remotely famous. Not going to get in to long winded details about them or my preferences, other than to say I’m in to ass and thighs. If a woman is flat chested, and it says “Home Depot Lumber Dept.” across her chest, I don’t care as long as she’s got that ass and those thighs. If she’s got a great face, even better, the better the face, the better the overall package. Of course, if great tits come with that ass and thighs, it’s all good, but tits are optional for me, very optional, if she’s got, . . .

that ass and those thighs.

(ii) I have no idea who any of these people are, because I haven’t been to “the movies” since 1983-4. Having said that, I have some idea who these people are since the “news” web sites I frequent on a regular basis regularly bombard me with their faces, life stories, and INSTRUCTIONS for my life (think Paltrow.) She couldn’t be more annoying, and to think she believes she knows anything about nutrition is most annoying. I have nearly 42 years in health and fitness, with about 3,000 hours of study in nutrition alone. Gwyneth Paltrow knows as much about nutrition as a piece of broken concrete.

(iii) I like Pink to a certain extent. She has the best ass and thighs I’ve ever seen on a woman with no hips, but that’s not why I like her. She is not one of the women I mentioned in item (i). I thoroughly enjoyed her second CD, and I root for her in life. I see elements of my own persona in her, and believe I understand her thought processes to a degree. Although I root for her in life, I believe she has chosen to be a left wing idiot by aligning herself with groups like PETA and spouting worn out left wing prose. She has disappointed me to an extent by her desire to offset her natural beauty with the tendency to make herself look like an outrageous freakazoid clubgoer. She is WAY more beautiful, especially facially, than she gives herself credit for, but seems rooted in remaining a rebellious child. All this from a mother who turned 34 less than two weeks ago.

(iv) That fat dude is annoying, but not because he’s fat, and not because he’s become a big star, either. He’s just annoying, about a tie with Paltrow in my book, which is a lot annoying.

(v) Three cheers to the people who proclaimed that there is no such thing as sex addiction. That’s right. There’s this book called the Bible which speaks of premises such as self-mastery, but I know that’s just a lot of narrow-minded, right wing, intolerant, repressive, Puritanical nonsense that needs to be beaten out of me by The Religion Of Peace, which is one of the arms of our current regime. I hereby submit myself for a beheading. But don’t forget, I’m pretty good with a machete, so lop mine off before I lop yours off. Catch me if you can. I know you can, because the NSA has a regular bead on me wherever I go. Right wing enemy of the country kind of thingy, y’know.

(vi) I think I may be in love with Skunky, or is that addicted to her? Don’t know about her ass and thighs, or her face for that matter, but I sure do love the way she expresses herself. I think part of it is the kinship with watching how a fellow reformed liberal has come out of it, and their observations of our culture. In particular, because she brings up feminism and how she feels played by her mentors in that arena. Skunky is very articulate, thorough and makes for some extremely interesting reading.

    If you are in love with someone that posts in this forum, then your issues are beyond the scope of my expertise. As far as attributes of women, I concur. Two celebs that have major league ass is Leah Remini & Selma Hayek. In short, nearly any woman from Brazil or Mexico will fit the bill. However, I am partial to women that are well-endowed. Preference is preference.

    AR on September 21, 2013 at 11:57 pm

Oh, and a word to KenB. But have you ever LISTENED to paint dry?

Okay, tell me all about how it’s the effect of the 180 acid trips I took. NO one can LISTEN to paint dry, right?

I read something about that decades ago. I think it was one baseball player talking about how crazy another baseball player was, claiming he could hear paint dry. I always thought that sounded kind of crazy, until a few years ago, . . .

when it happened to me.

I think.

I think, therefore I heard it?


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 21, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Oh Alfredo you so funny…LOL!

    Ken B on September 21, 2013 at 8:22 pm

Remember the true story of Gwyneth’s father throwing an actor out of an audition for St. Elsewhere, without even giving him a chance? Bruce Paltrow launched into a verbal tirade when he overheard that the performer was a Reagan supporter.

nicole on September 22, 2013 at 11:04 am

Remember one rule of life: It doesn’t matter if you’re an idiot. As long as you can get other idiots to like and support you, you can have a wonderful life. Hence these actors and this movie.
