Sex addiction is no joke. But when screenwriter Stuart Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) sat in on 12-step meetings for sex addicts to research his directorial debut, he learned to embrace the crazy. ”People would say, ‘If you’re doing a movie, you’ve got to make sure that it’s funny,”’ says Blumberg. ”Their stories are heartbreaking, but sometimes they make you laugh until you cry.” In his film, a doctor (Josh Gad) hits rock bottom after trying to slip a camera up his boss’ dress. Meanwhile, a five-years-clean addict (Mark Ruffalo) struggles with his inner beast when he meets the perfect woman (Gwyneth Paltrow). Their romantic chemistry would make Iron Man jealous.
