Kate and Charlie are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking--especially the drinking. When Kate's drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. Her new lifestyle calls into question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love, or just a boozy diversion from adulthood.

An excellent movie on alcohol abuse. VRMurphy says it bang one. Excellent acting and worth the watch.

Above-average writing and acting; story is somewhat predictable but manages to be neither preachy nor artificially heartwarming. It's not a pleasant watch - alcoholism is not entertaining - but worthwhile.

This movie's take on alcoholism is so slick,it really made me wish i never became a drunkard when i was much younger.I know all about alcoholism taking you to dangerous places you otherwise would most definitely not got to if you were sober period.This movie hits so close to home when it comes to that reality for me it ain't even funny ladies and gentlemen.I became so determined to not be a drunkard no more that i didn't need to go to AA meetings at all period.I just successfully stop drinking cold turkey actually.Nowadays,the only time i drink some alcohol is when these grocery stores and other places be offering those FREE samples for you to get your sip on,you feel me?????????????????

“Smashed” gives us an unvarnished look at alcohol abuse and recovery. It’s a good movie but a bit slow-paced for my taste.

A story of how a person overcomes alchole abuse. Sad but the person overcomes the issues which is good. The experiences along the way are potrayed.

A well told story. Very good if you are interested in AA for any reason at all.

An intense, but low-key, look at the difficult personal choices made in the recovery from alcoholism. ( Kev's PICkS; ...also check out the dramatic ground-breaking precurser: "The Days of Wine and Roses".

Excellent. Great and very believably realistic. An entertaining and illuminating drama. Illustrates how ideological structure; however well intentioned, can drive people blindly into further harm. Shows how the (U.S.) system has not yet caught up to the idea of addiction being a mental-health issue. Those close to this struggle have their mantra & tend to believe this "one size fits all" recovery programming works if you "stick to the program". The circumstances and attitudes and personalities are all different - where one has a clear path, for others there is dangerous traffic. In Canada, trying to introduce progressive change into a system that considers itself infallible is extremely difficult and slow. A person who has been educated, trying to get consideration from Albertan right-wing "Christian" ideologues spouting "No No No", have little chance of injecting wisdom and humane feeling in the short moments alloted for such communications. Yet, change must come to this system of shame and persecution if we are to have a healthy, sustainable society.
