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

The Trailer is Better Than the Whole Film!
14 August 2014 | by 3xHCCHSee all my reviews

When they were just dating, Jay and Annie had the best sex anywhere and anytime. Since they got married and had kids though, their sexual activity dipped to below zero. One frustrating night when their attempts for sex were going nowhere, Annie hits on the idea to take a video of themselves having sex to make things more exciting. Aroused by the camera, they had a three-hour sex marathon following all the positions prescribed in the book "The Joy of Sex".

In the morning, Annie reminds Jay to delete the video. However, Jay inadvertently uploads the video onto the cloud and an app automatically shared it with people to whom they had given their old iPads to, including their kids, parents, friends, and even the mailman. Jay and Annie scramble to get all of these iPads back and off the internet.

All of that I had written in the synopsis you can also get from watching the trailer. All the funny parts are already there in that short clip. When you watch the whole film, there was nothing else worth watching anymore. In fact, the trailer was even edited better than the film itself, making it more hilarious than the film itself.

After the initial funny premise had already been laid down, the rest of the film was nothing more than prolonging the agony and beating an already dead horse. That whole sequence in the house of Rob Lowe's character (as the CEO of the company interested in buying Annie's mommy blog) was unbearably unfunny.

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are funny actors, but these are already very familiar roles for them and they seem to just be sleepwalking through them. Segel, in particular seems to be stereotyped already in this type of role of a lovelorn loser. Diaz is a favorite actress of mine, and I am able to find something positive in even her reviled films, like "Bad Teacher" (which also starred Segel). There is still her great-looking body to like here, but unfortunately, not much else.
