Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, 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 has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure - tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie's boss - all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A tired premise and a sheen of desperate flop sweat tanks this DOA comedy, which plays more like an ancient Playboy doodle than a full-fledged movie."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Sex Tape is warmer and more amusing than its ads would lead one to believe. In fact, it's almost good enough, leaning a little too hard on the innate likability of stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel."
‑ Chris Klimek, Village Voice
"An extremely mild improvement over Jake Kasdan's previous effort..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"... Proof that even a movie primarily concerned with other body parts needs to have a brain."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"I find it hard to believe any of these writers couldn't come up with funnier ways to exploit this premise."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"Even for a farce, the situations stretch credulity far beyond the breaking point."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"At heart, it's about as naughty as an old Disney movie with Dean Jones, Suzanne Pleshette, and an unruly Great Dane. I liked its gung-ho slapstick spirit, though. No one's slacking off."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A farce that doesn't use, say, The Lady Eve, The 40-Year-Old Virgin or even Carry On Camping as its benchmarks, instead only hoping to out-funny the pictures of Andrei Tarkovsky, that video Werner Herzog won't let us see, and the concept of famine."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"succeeds only as an advertisement for the tablet mentioned every dozen words or so, and that forms the McGuffin chased with sadly ineffectual diligence by Segal and Diaz."
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"Dull, Bad, and Worse"
‑ Diana Saenger,
"It's strange to watch a comedy full of talented people that does not work from the opening scene. It's like eating food and not tasting anything."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Sex is treated first as brainless imperative, then as acrobatic duty, then as desperate consequence - it's never sexy in any way."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Blathers on like an unoriginal stand-up's meandering riff on 'Remember when you used to have sex all the time?' Pathetically prudish in its avoidance of frontal nudity and its finale, where Annie and Jay watch their tape, cringing and wincing all the way"
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"By the end, this broad sex farce remains pretty limp."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Dirty minded yet wholesomely executed, like a 6-year-old retelling a smutty joke he doesn't understand."
‑ Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
