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

Does it matter that the film itself ain't that funny? Annie and Jay are mostly anodyne; Diaz and Segel really don't click.

Limp.

Not especially funny or sexy.

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.
July 24, 2014
Even for a farce, the situations stretch credulity far beyond the breaking point.
July 18, 2014
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.
July 18, 2014
It's fitfully funny and exuberantly eager to please. The chief problem with Sex Tape, however, is that it remains a comedy of blushes as opposed to full-blown embarrassment.

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.

Sex is treated first as brainless imperative, then as acrobatic duty, then as desperate consequence - it's never sexy in any way.

The folks behind Sex Tape did their homework. They just forgot the laughs.
July 17, 2014
Yes, there are some laughs, but they're not as big or as frequent as one might expect from a would-be "major" comedy.
July 17, 2014
An uneasy comedy that is not without its laugh-out-loud moments.
July 17, 2014
Just lie back and think of funnier films.
July 17, 2014
Since it's a comedy, much could be forgiven if the film was consistent in generating laughs, but the comedy is as erratic as the couple's sex life.
July 17, 2014
The real sex tape that [the characters] Jay and Annie are chasing all over town might have at least had some instructive value. The movie Sex Tape that Jason and Cameron have made can't even make that claim.
July 17, 2014
If the first half of the movie is fairly sharp as these things go, the second half is increasingly, noisily ridiculous, with Diaz working extra hard for her laughs and verging on the shrill.
July 17, 2014
Instead of soft core, "Sex Tape" offers no core. No narrative core, just a not-bad notion executed execrably; no core of conviction, just two stars trudging joylessly through swamps of mediocrity.
July 17, 2014
Given its subject matter and R rating, "Sex Tape" isn't as wild or woolly as it could be.
