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. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Promising Storyline, Disappointing Movie
9 December 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Jay (Jason Segel) and his girlfriend Annie (Cameron Diaz) love each other and have sex in the most unusual places. They get married and have two children, and soon their sex life is almost inexistent. One night, Annie leaves their children with her mother to have a night of sex with Jay, but they are tense and fail. Annie suggests Jay to make a home video to rekindle their sexual life and they have three hours of kinky sex.

Annie asks Jay to delete the footage but he forgets and leaves it in a cloud. Soon they search the Ipods they have given to their friends to promote Jay's songs to delete the video. But Jay receives a phone call from someone that has had access to the video. Who might be the mysterious intruder?

"Sex Tape" is an unfunny and disappointing comedy with a promising storyline. Most of the situations and characters are silly or stupid. The cameo of Jack Black and many scenes of Cameron Diaz are the best in this forgettable movie. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Sex Tape: Perdido na Nuvem" ("Sex Tape – Lost in the Cloud")
