In yet another unfortunate meeting between Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal, Sex Tape has its moments, but they are far apart. Mostly it isn’t funny at all. I only watched this movie at a girl’s night – we wanted something funny and this fit the bill. It is probably the movie of 2014 I had no inclination to see because I always knew it would be quite horrendous.
The premise of the story is plausible enough – they could have prevented it all very effectively by just not making a sex tape OR not on a device that was connected with the internet in any freaking way #idiots. Thus Sex Tape is very relevant to society today but it must also be noted that the leaking of such material is often traumatic and not even remotely hilarious.
Cameron Diaz as a mother is certainly something new for her, and I mostly enjoyed her in it. Jason Segal is SO thin in here, and it looks odd. He is certainly the type of man who looks okay with a bit of fat, so I am rather sad he lost it all!
This is not as bad as Grown-Ups 2, because they at least didn’t send a Moose through the door within the first five opening minutes. I had some fun with this, but a shallow, unsatisfactory fun, which can be compared to drinking Jägermeister: fun at the time, but you really have no idea why you did it the following day.
Recommendation: If you like shitty movies, or are busy drinking Jägermeister.
