Thanks for Sharing movie scene

Mark Ruffalo has a run-in with Gwyneth Paltrow in Thanks for Sharing.

Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right), Tim Robbins (Green Lantern) and Josh Gad (Love & Other Drugs) are three obsessive, strong-willed men who meet in a support group control their addictions in the 2012 comedy drama Thanks For Sharing.

Oh, and the film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow (Contagion), Joely Richardson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and pop star Alecia “Pink” Moore (Happy Feet Two) as the women in their lives.

And that’s really all you need to know—the six of’em wind their way in and out of all manner of romantic, comedic and dramatic situations, the men’s addictive personalities all playing a role in each of one their story threads.

The funnies of these revolves around sex addicts Gad and Pink, while the sexiest is definitely the one with Ruffalo and Gwynnie, who looks damned hot in a black bra and garters.

The movie had a limited release to U.S. theaters in September, 2013, where it garnered fair-to-midland reviews and blah box office gross of under $2 million.

But I thought it was pretty solid—a little preachy and nothing startlingly original, but certainly worth a look-see.

The Blu-ray Disc and DVD both include a making-of featurette, an audio commentary with co-writer/director Stuart Blumberg (who wrote The Kids Are All Right) and co-writer Matt Winston, a collection of deleted scenes and a gag reel.
