New Trailer for Sex Addict Comedy 'Thanks For Sharing' With Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow

While the debate still rages whether sex addiction is a real disorder or just an excuse people use to be slutty, the fact remains it's a real concern to the people affected by it. Not necessarily the addicts themselves, but their friends and family. And thus far Hollywood doesn't really seem sure whether to treat the issue seriously or as a joke, while the upcoming dramedy Thanks for Sharing wants to have it both ways.

The latest trailer for the film is a prime example of a film that wants to have its cake and eat it too. Mark Ruffalo plays a sex addict struggling to defeat his problems on a daily basis, but finding it difficult when he enters a relationship with a woman played by Gwyneth Paltrow, who has no clue about any of it. Well yeah, I guess it would be a little difficult then, wouldn't it? While that storyline appears extremely trite and rom-com cutesy, a better one may involve Josh Gad as a young addict just beginning to deal with the sexual temptations that seem to be everywhere.

With Tim Robbins, Patrick Fugit, and Pink co-starring, Thanks for Sharing opens on September 20th.
