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

"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
"It is, more, an embarrassment to the genre of R-rated comedy."
‑ Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
"Segal and Diaz deserve combat pay for some of the naked stuff they go through. (No, you're not going to see full frontal, or pubal or boobal. Plenty of backal however.)"
‑ Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Advertiser
"Tape doesn't contain many laughs, even less heat, leaving the viewer with the sight of Segel and Diaz trying to turn a DOA script into the farce it has no interest in becoming."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"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
"The folks behind Sex Tape did their homework. They just forgot the laughs."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"'Sex Tape' should be erased."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Given the premise, the movie doesn't push the envelope as much as it could and perhaps should, but blame the MPAA and the studio system more than the scripters."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Not a great movie but still one of the funnier iPad commercials I've seen lately."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"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
"Yes, there are some laughs, but they're not as big or as frequent as one might expect from a would-be "major" comedy."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The film is only 94 minutes long but it still feels heavily padded. The lengthy introduction and drawn out jokes are proof of that."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"Trying to combine flaccid, family-friendly fun with a shallow sexcapade results in a total turn-off."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"It stretches to fill 90 minutes of screen time, yet feels so, so much longer."
‑ Daniel Carlson, Movie Mezzanine
