Sex Tape

Rated R / 1 hr 34 min / Comedy

What is it about?

Cameron Diaz plays a mom who blogs about her experiences as a wife and mother. There is a corporation that sells toys that is looking to expand it's online presence that is run by Rob Lowe. They bring Cameron in to discuss possibly having her be the voice on their online blog. The corporation wants her to tone down some of her more racy posts. She had recently vented her frustrations over her sex life with her husband played by Jason Segal. To celebrate her impending success Diaz sends the kids to her parents so she and her husband can make a sex tape. They record it on the husband's ipad which then syncs to every ipad he has ever had. He has given several ipads to friends and family. Now they have to try to get the sex tape back from anyone that may have one of the ipads.

You will like it if...

You like mild comedies that feature Cameron Diaz's (and/or Jason Segal's) naked butt. For an R rated comedy this movie is rather tame. There is some nudity, but nothing that you haven't seen in PG-13 movies. They could have easily made this a PG-13 movie if not for all of the unnecessary F-bombs sprinkled throughout. The only frontal nudity is featured in a book that the couple uses. The humor isn't as raunchy as it could have been. While there are a few chuckles here and there, there aren't many big laughs. The same tired jokes that have been borrowed from funnier movies are used in several spots, but they aren't funny anymore. It's a cute little movie, but the only thing that makes it special is Cameron Diaz's butt.
