Sex Tape

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.

My Opinion: Maybe it’s because my expectations were lowered, but I actually enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. The combination of Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel worked well in smaller doses in Bad Teacher; fortunately, their chemistry remains intact in this longer form. While there are certainly issues with secondary character development and some jokes that are stretched far too thin, the only real issue I have is that it does seem like some edits were made to keep the film from being too raunchy. I fully expect an unrated cut of the film to be released for home media.
