19 July 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

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?

18 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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 »

Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Ellie Kemper Talk 'Sex Tape' | Exclusive

17 July 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

What would you do if a very private video was uploaded to the Cloud, where it was downloadable by your entire family, and free for everyone to see, including your friendly neighborhood mailman? That's the premise behind this week's new comedy Sex Tape, which finds Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel scrambling to retrieve the very naughty three hour love-making session that has accidently gone viral. Will they be able to pry these heart-attack inducing images out of their parents' cold dead hands before its too late? Or will everyone and their uncle see the Sex Tape? Our roving reporter Ryan J. Downey gets down to the bottom of these very questions, in a series of exclusive interviews with the cast. Watch as he chats with both Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, as well as their co-star Ellie Kemper, and find out if they survived the most incriminating video leak of all time. »

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, »

Sex Tape Review

17 July 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One would think that a movie entitled "Sex Tape" wouldn't have a problem being raunchy.  Sadly, director Jake Kasdan's latest picture can't seem to find the balance between a sweet relationship and salty dialogue, and mostly goes with the former at the expense of the latter.  Even more baffling is why the movie constantly feels the need to justify its premise as it reiterates plot points, character decisions, and the technological chicanery involved in the story's inciting event.  There's always more emphasis on explaining what's going on instead of going all the way. In a belabored fit of exposition, mommy blogger Annie (Cameron Diaz) explains to her readers (and us) that she and her husband Jay (Jason Segel) used to have sex all the time, but they no longer have the time because of the demands of work and family.  Looking to rekindle the spark in their marriage, Annie »

'Sex Tape' (2014) Movie Review

17 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sex Tape gets off to a bad start and I mean a really bad start as Annie (Cameron Diaz) sits down on her mommy blog to tap out her frustrations with the lack of sex in her marriage to Jay (Jason Segel) while recounting the long, sexually charged history of their relationship. Within minutes this movie has you saying, "We get it! Now let's get on with the movie," and yet, the set up takes another 20-30 minutes before the first truly funny scene takes place. As it turns out, that scene, which runs about 7-10 minutes is the only consistently funny scene in the movie and certainly not worth the price of admission. Annie and Jay are married with two kids, the oldest of which is just about to "graduate" from the fourth to the fifth grade, and their marriage has lost its sizzle. However, as Annie is heading »

Keira Knightley And Chloe Moretz Buddy Up In Laggies Trailer

17 July 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Have you ever wished you could just take a time out on being an adult? What if you could run away and take a week off from big, scary life-changing decisions? Well, that's exactly what the unambitious anti-heroine of Laggies manages in the trailer above! Keira Knightley stars in this indie dramedy as Megan, a grown woman who is not ready to grow up. She embarrasses her peer (Ellie Kemper) by tweaking the nipples of a giant Buddha statue. She relishes in make-your-own-pizza night with her dad, and literally runs away from her boyfriend (Mark Webber, because of course) when he earnestly proposes. But where can she go? Why not to the home of a teenager who she bought some beer for once? Chloe Grace Moretz co-stars as Annika, a teen who is totally cool with giving Megan a place to crash for a week of figuring out what she »

First Trailer For Shelton’s ‘Laggies’

17 July 2014 1:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Following its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Lynn Shelton’s Laggies will hit Us cinemas this autumn. Today we can bring you the first trailer for the indie drama comedy, with Keira Knightley pulling off an American accent (only just!).

Knightley stars as Megan, a 28 year-old stuck in a rut. When her long-term boyfriend gets down on one knee to propose, Megan scarpers, landing in the lap of highschooler Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her dad Craig (Sam Rockwell). With her parents urging her to get her proper adult life together, Megan starts to realize she can’t keep waiting around for the future to happen. Ellie Kemper, Mark Webber, Gretchen Mol, Kaitlyn Dever, Tiya Sircar and Daniel Zovatto co-star.

I’m a huge, huge fan of Shelton’s Your Sister’S Sister, and Laggies seems to follow the same kind of ‘indie’ path. Although that could get boring, »

Trailer released for Laggies starring Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz

17 July 2014 12:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After her great work with films such as Your Sister’s Sister and Humpday, director Lynn Shelton returns this autumn with Laggies, a film which could see her bridge the gap between indie and mainstream. A24 have released a new trailer for the film, which you can view below…

Laggies stars Keira Knightley (Begin Again) as Megan, a 28-year-old who is at the beginning of a early-life crisis. When her loving boyfriend proposes to her, she freaks out and flees. Aiming to lay low for a while as she tries to figure out what to do with her life, she begins to hang out with 16-year-old Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz, Kick-Ass) and her single Dad (Sam Rockwell, The Way, Way Back).

Given some quite positive reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Laggies is definitely one indie to keep a look out for in the  second half of the year. »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Sex Tape Star Ellie Kemper!

Ellie Kemper is absolutely delightful. From her work in “The Office” to feature films such as 21 Jump Street and especially Bridesmaids, she makes me smile every damn time she is on screen. In her latest feature Sex Tape, she plays Bff to Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, who portray a married couple who’ve accidentally released their private video to nearly everybody they know. Kemper and her co-star Rob Corddry are terrific together adding a little fun to the mix. »
