Summer movies are about good guys vs. bad guys. In the case of a marriage between our “good guys”- Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel- becoming stale, they do battle against the ultimate “bad guy”- THE CLOUD!
Who hasn’t thought about making a sex tape before, right? Just Google the words “sex” and “tape” and I’m sure a bunch of results will come up. Actually… you might be at work. Maybe don’t Google that.
I think the poster for this movie pretty much speaks for itself, but here is a little more info I was able to dig up while being as work-safe as possible. Interestingly enough, I have not yet been fired for searching for SEX TAPE at my office!
When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, 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 is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world… but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they’ll never forget, they’ll find that their video will expose even more than they bargained for.
So essentially, it’s the full length version of this Super Bowl commercial:
What’s It About: 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.
Should You See It?: Rule of thumb- if a comedy is rated R and it’s coming out in the Summertime, you go see it. Might be pretty raunchy, but that never hurt anyone. This is your one week respite before The Rock steamrolls the box office with HERCULES. Get a few chuckles in while you can!
