Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel record their interpretation of "The Joy of Sex" in Sex Tape.

Cameron Diaz (The Counselor) and Jason Segel (The Five Year Engagement) and director Jake Kasdan, who teamed up for the well-liked 2011 movie Bad Teacher, reunite in the undeniably salacious–and inferior–comedy Sex Tape.

Jay (Segel) and Annie (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 three-hour marathon session. It seems like a great idea until they discover that their most private video has been accidentally uploaded to “the cloud” and gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, »

Watch: Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Jack McBrayer, Ellie Kemper & More In 12-Minute Comedy Short 'The Nobodies'

21 August 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this week, Dusty Brown and Greg Bratman — who are Upright Citizens Brigade alumni — quietly released their new short film “The Nobodies,” and they rounded up comedy names like Jim Gaffigan, "Veep" star Tony HaleJack McBrayerEllie Kemper, and Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster to play along. The short grew out of a duo Brown and Bratman formed in NYC called “The Barrel Brothers,” that they describe as 'a talentless vaudevillian team of two naïve brothers from a fictional town in Kansas who were out of their depth performing in the big city.' Their long-running show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater won Best Emerging Comedy Duo in 2004, and gave them a platform where they met the actors who appear in their short. Here's the official synopsis: In “The Nobodies”, our two central characters (Greg and Dusty) have to make a fantastical journey through their own identity crises. »

Fox Passes on Tina Fey-Produced Comedy ‘Cabot College’

18 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Fox network has taken a pass on the comedy “Cabot College,” produced by the “30 Rock” duo of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock for Universal Television.

Project from Universal TV had received a series commitment from Fox but never got a formal greenlight for production after the pilot was shot last spring. Matt Hubbard, another “30 Rock” alum, penned the script set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time.

Asif Ali, Margaret Cho, Jack Cutmore-Scott and Bonnie Dennison toplined the pilot. It’s unclear if Universal TV plans to shop the project to other outlets.

Fey and Carlock also have a midseason order from NBC for the Ellie Kemper starrer “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

'Laggies' Poster Featuring Chloe Moretz and Keira Knightley

13 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chloe Moretz, Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell play peek-a-boo on the latest poster for the coming-of-age comedic drama Laggies. Directed by Lynn Shelton, the movie follows a woman having a life crisis, who escapes her recent marriage proposal to hide out in the home of her new 16-year-old friend. Check out the trio of actors as they attempt to find some meaning in life without letting the important things go.

Having spent her twenties comfortably inert, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber). When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to escape - at least temporarily - she hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika (Chloe Moretz) and Annika's world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell »

Paul Feig rumored to be taking the helms of a female-driven 'Ghostbusters' reboot

2 August 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Feig is a very funny man. First and foremost, before any further conversation about the merits of a possible female-driven "Ghostbusters," let's be very clear about that. You should read "Kick Me: Adventures In Adolescence" and "Superstud: Or How I Became A 24-Year-Old Virgin" immediately, especially if you're a fan of "Freaks & Geeks." You'll see how his writings evolved into that show, particularly in terms of the way he uses brutal truth to get his laughs. When I visited him on the set of "Bridesmaids," he was confident about the film he was making, and he was over-the-moon in regards to his cast. His background is such that he really loves performers, and he knows how to create an amazing atmosphere for them to play together. I'm not a big fan of "The Heat," but the same skill set is on display, and it's obvious that he was able »

Movie Review – They Came Together (2014)

1 August 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

They Came Together, 2014.

Directed by David Wain.

Starring Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Cobie Smulders, Christopher Meloni, Max Greenfield, Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Jason Mantzoukas, Melanie Lynskey and Ed Helms.

Synopsis:

When Joel (Rudd) and Molly (Poehler) meet, it’s hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie shop. But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up and then must find their way back together.

Romantic comedies continue to get churned out every year, and almost every director and screenwriter continue to do the same things over and over again. It’s not often that we get a romantic comedy that tries to do something different, let alone attempts to parody the genre. With They Came Together, director David Wain (Role Models) decided to bring his own brand of humor in to try and poke some fun at the genre and »

Looking good, ladies! Keri Russell looked sexier than ever at the "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" premiere in Madrid, Spain on Wednesday. The former "Felicity" star stunned in a low-cut black jumpsuit. Russell went for a rocker-chic style, wearing her hair in messy waves and sported a smokey eye. The brunette beauty completed her look with a delicate silver necklace, black bangles and silver strappy sandals. Ellie Kemper looked fab in floral as she walked the red carpet of her new upcoming movie "Sex Tape," in Los Angeles on Thursday. "The Office" actress donned a delicate, yellow and green floral collared Honor dress. She paired it with silver Jerome C. Rousseau strappy heels and finished off her look with Effy Jewelry. Kemper kept her dark auburn hair simple in a low, wavy ponytail and completed her look with natural makeup. Maria Menounos stunned at NBC Universal’s 2014 Summer »

Movie Review: Sex Tape

18 July 2014 9:37 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Settling into Sex Tape, I was looking forward to a couple of hours of laughter from this supposed comedy of the summer. (Maybe not pee-your-pants laughter, but more of a constant snicker with an occasional guffaw.) The kind of giggles that typically come with the territory of a Cameron Diaz and/or Jason Segel film. Besides, who doesn’t like a naughty, sexy comedy? Plus, Sex Tape director Jake Kasdan, who previously directed both Diaz and Segel in Bad Teacher (2011), has secured some chuckles from me before. That said, overall, Sex Tape fell flat. Fun to watch; nothing spectacular. Not too naughty – just a tad. Minimal laughter, without the pee.

We’ve all heard this story before, right? Boy meets girl. Boy and girl get married. Babies are born. Boy and girl stop having sex. But then…boy and girl try to reignite the spark and bring some excitement back »

Which Sex Tape Star Mistakenly "Ate a Lot of Pork" Before a Big Sex Scene?

Ellie Kemper and Rob Corddry play a married couple - and best friends to Cameron Diaz's and Jason Segel's characters - in Sex Tape. When we caught up with the comedic duo, they gave us the lowdown on their own impromptu intimate scene in the film and copped to some embarrassing tech-related flubs of their own. They also told us if, like their characters, they'd be temped to watch their own friends' intimate adventures if they happened to be captured on camera. Sex Tape is in theaters now. »

Critical Mass: Is this a 'Sex Tape' you'd pay to see?

18 July 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are back together again. After starring in Bad Teacher, the 2011 comedy hit that topped $100 million, they reunite to play a married couple who’ve lost their spark. Kids, work, and age have taken their toll on what was once a spontaneous and prolific sex life, and Annie and Jay try to get it back by making their own homemade sex tape. But when their video gets uploaded to the Cloud by accident and sent to their friends, neighbors, and even their mailman, they have to race around town to prevent the naughty movie from becoming a scandal. »

Film Review: ‘Sex Tape’ a Comedy Sorely Lacking in Laughs

18 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Jason Segel is usually fun to watch in just about anything, but he sure isn’t fun in “Sex Tape,” a big studio summer comedy with a fatal flaw - it doesn’t seem to know what’s funny. So like a stand-up comedian on a bad night, it feverishly and desperately throws anything it can think of at the screen in the vague hope that it might be funny even incidentally.

Unfortunately Segel, and his co-writers Nicholas Stoller and Kate Angelo needed to think a little harder. Segel’s best work is rooted in human nature. This one seems rooted in sitcoms instead, and not very good ones at that.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

In “Sex Tape,” Segel and Cameron Diaz play a married couple with two children. They started out hot and heavy, but now their sex life has gone stale. So they decide to make a sex tape to »

Sex Tape – The Review

17 July 2014 10:24 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

We’re just past the Summer mid-point and the tide of rated R for “raunchy” feature films rolls on. So far, we’ve gotten a visit from Melissa McCarthy with Tammy and Seth McFarlane starring in (not just his voice like Ted) A Million Ways To Die In The West. We started early in May with the team captain of the Apatow squad, Seth Rogan in the hit Neighbors. And we’ve even had a sequel with the return of Joanh and Channing in 22 Jump Street. This new flick is unique, because it’s more of a reunion than sequel. Three years ago director Jake Kasdan (Orange County) teamed with Jason Segal (another member of the Apatow frat) and Cameron Diaz (co-star of that milestone of “R” comedy hits, There’S Something About Mary)  for the box office hit Bad Teacher. Now there’s a sequel in the works for »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Cast Of Sex Tape

17 July 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 2011, director Jake Kasdan gave us the raunchy comedy Bad Teacher, which starred Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz. Opening to modest reviews and a decent box office haul, the trio has reunited now for Sex Tape, another R-rated comedic romp that follows a couple who decide to make a sex tape in order to spice up their love life. However, things go awfully wrong when they realize that their little film has made its way onto the web and is about to be made public for all to see. Now, they must race against the clock in order to make sure that their steamy little secret stays just that, a secret.

Our very own Matt Donato reviewed the film earlier this week, giving it 3/5 stars and saying the following about it:

On a scale of “Kim Kardashian” to “Fred Durst,” Sex Tape clocks in at a “Tila Tequila” – meaning, despite being a trashy mess, »
