Sex Tape

A married couple wake up to discover that the sex tape they made the evening before has gone missing, leading to a frantic search for its whereabouts. 


Sex Tape is directed by Jake Kasdan and is starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, who are the team that brought us Bad Teacher in 2011.If I have to define this movie in one word it would be "too long". This film is too long. An hour and a half of this story is too long. Every scene is just a bit too long. It's kind of a messy movie. I'm disappointed as Jason Segel is a pretty funny guy, he's proven himself to be a capable comedy writer. Cameron Diaz used to be pretty great at comedy but now she just starred in terrible comedy. This film was not even funny, not one single joke made me laugh. I can't believe that so many pretty good people gathered in a room and decided to make this film. All the character are unrealistic and fake, they look like they just come back from the most stupid cartoons ever. They tried to set up a realistic relationship between a man and a woman and their marriage which is gotten to a point where it's not really working anymore; but they failed. What shocked me the most is that Sex Tape is a Sony Pictures movie... with so many Apple products. Everyone is using an Ipad or a MacBook a whole bunch of time, talking about their features, showing their features and getting a tone of advertising from Apple. 

Overall if you've seen the trailer for Sex Tape, not only you've seen every single part which is even remotely funny but you know exactly where the story is going. They're going to have sex, record it and spend the rest of the movie and a whole bunch of embarrassing conversation trying to avoid the fact that they made a sex tape.
