‘Sex Tape’, Jason Segel’s latest comedy about the perils of modern love, hits theaters on July 18. It’s a film that tells the story of how two college sweethearts, Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz), have lost the original spark that they had in their relationship, and now a decade down the line with kids they are attempting to get it back. The product of that attempt? A sex tape, which Jay has accidentally sent up to the ‘cloud’ for the review of their friends, family and colleagues. And you thought YOUR family reunions were awkward! Find out what the critics are saying!
Sex Tape premieres on July 18, and we think you’re going to laugh almost as much as you did when you saw Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz‘s last co-starring vehicle, Bad Teacher! Only, this film is slightly different because it is written by Jason himself along with famed comedy writers Kate Angelo and Nicholas Stoll. Kate has written for the likes of such comedies as The Back-Up Plan, Will & Grace, and The Bernie Mac Show among others, while Nick has written for comedies like The Muppets and Neighbors. So, comedy fans know that they’re in for a treat when they check out Sex Tape in theaters on July 18!
‘Sex Tape’ Movie Reviews
Find out what the critics have been saying below, and tell us if you’ll be watching!
“Sex Tape is a safe and cautious movie, intent above all on respecting the modern taboo against being mean. Jay sustains some cuts and bruises, thanks to some rough physical comedy, but nobody’s feelings are in danger of being hurt. Cruelty-free laughter can be a challenge, and some of the ways this movie confronts it are less than imaginative.”
“…on paper it sounds like fairly relevant material for our sex-obsessed, technologically paranoid digital era — a comedy geared toward an audience presumably familiar with the ins and outs of Internet porn, and well aware that their most sensitive personal data could be one stray click away from public exposure.”
“There are other smidgens of fun to be mined here, including the estimable Rob Corddry and Ellie Kemper repeatedly stealing their scenes as Diaz and Segel’s supposed best friends, who appear to have enjoyed the sex tape just a little too much. What I can say about the two leads is that they’re in great shape and seem game for anything; they generate plenty of good cheer.”
“The casting of [Rob] Lowe, who notoriously suffered his own sex-tape scandal in the late 1980s, at first seems like an in-joke that’s too easy. But the more his character reveals himself—the more you realize how cleverly it taps into Lowe’s longtime chops as a standout supporting player.”
