Sex Tape (2014)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: With neither the conviction to embrace its smutty premise nor enough laughs to function as a worthwhile rom-com, the flaccid Sex Tape suffers from cinematic impotence.

Movie Info

Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide - why not? - to make a video of themselves trying out every position in THE JOY OF SEX in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea, until they discover that their most private video has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure - tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie's boss - all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage.

In short, it's a PG plot for an X-rated story.

May 31, 2016 | Full Review…

A tired premise and a sheen of desperate flop sweat tanks this DOA comedy, which plays more like an ancient Playboy doodle than a full-fledged movie.

Even for a farce, the situations stretch credulity far beyond the breaking point.

Jul 24, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's strange to watch a comedy full of talented people that does not work from the opening scene. It's like eating food and not tasting anything.

Sex Tape is warmer and more amusing than its ads would lead one to believe. In fact, it's almost good enough, leaning a little too hard on the innate likability of stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel.

At heart, it's about as naughty as an old Disney movie with Dean Jones, Suzanne Pleshette, and an unruly Great Dane. I liked its gung-ho slapstick spirit, though. No one's slacking off.

Audience Reviews for Sex Tape

In a film called "Sex Tape" an angry German Shepherd nearly steals the movie. That just is wrong. Rob Lowe does some interesting work.

It was okay. Not as bad as the reviews suggest. Idea was funny, though a bit thin (would you really give your postman an iPad and share all your content with him?!). It definitely has its faults and huge plot holes, but actually it was okay to watch once.

A cluster fuck of a movie, although amusing, it's charm runs dry.

A 20-minute sitcom story stretched into a 90-minute feature film that is sloppily constructed and actually would have a bit of potential in better hands. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal are fine as the leading duo and their interactions with people after their sex "file" is released can be quite funny, but that is only due to the fact that the film has a funny and likable cast. In the end it just throws lame and over the top cliches at your face while hammering in some family life lessons that you will not care about, because it doesn't have anything to do with the movie. Moral of the story, don't make a sex tape unless you are in the business, because it will not lead to anything good. Something I could have read in an online article. "Sex Tape" hits a few times and I chuckled, but it's basic premise and unoriginal climax ruins anything the film had going for it. Would I ever recommend this film? Oh hell no, but if you have nothing else to watch on television, give it a go just to see the mediocrity for yourself. I may not be as harsh on this as I should be, but the actors elevated it for me.
