Storyline

When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense - but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, 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 is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they're just one click away from being laid bare to the world... but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they'll never forget, they'll find that their video will expose even more than they bargained for.

Neither sexy nor funny enough.
24 December 2014 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play married couple Annie and Jay, who are dismayed to realise that leading a hectic family life has had a seriously negative impact on their physical relationship. When they find themselves with an evening free from the kids, the couple decide to try and revitalise their love-life by filming themselves performing EVERY position from 70s manual The Joy of Sex. The proverbial hits the fan, however, when the couple realise in horror that their current iPad has synced their home-made porn with all of the other tablets they have previously owned—tablets that they have given away as gifts to various friends and associates.

For most of its running time, Sex Tape smacks of desperation, chucking in as much unsophisticated sexual humour as the R rating will allow, but rarely getting the expected laughs; when Jack Black and Rob Lowe provide a film's funniest moments, then Houston, we have a problem. Of course, for many men, the biggest lure will undoubtedly be the sight of Diaz in the altogether, and at 42, she still has a very commendable body; unfortunately, facially speaking, she has started to resemble Jack Nicholson in Batman, which is just a bit off-putting—although not nearly as off-putting as Segel's hairy ass, which gets far too much screen time for my liking. Let's just say that the sight of Diaz and Segel rutting really ain't all that sexy.

The film also suffers from a typically maudlin Hollywood finale in which our adventurous couple's ordeal helps them to remember just why they fell in love in the first place. Gack!

Overall, I rate the film a rather disappointing 5/10: it sometimes rises to the occasion, but is frustratingly flaccid for much of the running time.
