Great movie, especially for couples! (by laddiebuck)
I was expecting worse based on the critics' reviews, but this movie hit all the right notes, and was both sweeter and funnier than your average summer movie fare like all of Ben Stiller's career basically . They get a lot of mileage out of simple situations, it's held together with the glue of a warm couple, and a believable and relatable premise. The situations and the characters exceed the bounds of possibility, but in a good, slightly over-the-top summer-movie kind of way and the spice of great little touches like Jack Black or the boss with the unusual tastes. Great movie to <more>
watch, especially together if you are a couple, young or middle-aged! It's not a rom- com but provides a similar level of good feeling though without the tension, and delivers some really great laughs along the way.
I found that the movie was more than just an entertainment. It was full of funny sex jokes combined with real life problems. All the critics who said that the film is built on cheap jokes and that the title "Sex Tape" is too vulgar, I think you have some issues with yourselves and/or your sex life. You just couldn't bare the fact that the problems that the film showed us through the makers of the movie eyes, was just too much to handle and too hard to admit that this is the truth and this is how it should be for those who don't have it only. I have a loving and true <more>
relationship with my man and when we went to the movies to see it, we both laughed our heads off because it was the truth. No hate :
Really funny and the humour transgressed culture and nationality lines (by NickTW)
I was lucky enough to see this film in the wonderful SFX Cinema in downtown Bangkok. Now being a Brit I have a slightly more developed sense of humour than my American Cousins and to be honest I roared with laughter the whole way through. True Cameron had some moments when her facial expressions indicated "I can't believe I am doing this" but ever the professional she pulled it off. My vote for funniest actor goes to the German Shepherd dog and the line "hey Google, how do you perform CPR on a German Shepherd" followed by a "google answer" there are 4 <more>
Starbucks near your location, had tears rolling down my cheeks. Funniest of all though was the response from the local Thai audience who hollowing the subtitles on screen seemed to grasp every aspect of the humour and join in with laughter. If this was the sort of film on Cameron's bucket list, then well done you have done it and done it well. All in all an enjoyable movie and despite the title and some nudity it wouldn't, in my opinion, offend anybody.
This movie had me and my date laughing out loud. In a world of stupid comedies like "Tammy" and "Hangover 3", this movie was done well. Had a lot of laughs and was well worth the view. I cant understand how people did not enjoy this flick. Diaz and Segel are a great comedy team. There were some stupid laughs and some great laughs, but there were laughs all around. I can see this appealing more to the 30 and 40 something crowd than the teens and 20's. The movie starts off with a raunchy laugh but then grows into more real life situations and laughter befitting actual <more>
real problems that normal couples and married people face in their daily lives and sex lives, but puts a comedic twist on a serious situation. Like having to schedule sex for Thursday, or not remembering what your members member looks like, or the last time you saw each other naked. Well done, and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It was the negative reviews that almost stopped me from seeing this flick, but I'm glad I ignored and watched.
Great plot, Comedy, hilaoiruos (by georgecoffeynewyorker)
I popped along with a group to see Sex Tape. It was outrageously hilarious. I was breaking my sies laughing. To the point, I thought my back would give out. hahaha. It centered around a couple who was sex mad in earlier years. Annie Diaz introduces the film by at the same time Blogging. eheehh. She tells us all how sex mad they were and still are. Then when the children came along it took slightly more effort to get sex. Then Jay Segal - Who might I add has either changed or aged so much, that I hardly recognsied him . In fact I took to him in the film. The last I would have seen him was in <more>
How I Met Your Mother. As we later learn that the reason t hey made the Sex Tape was to fill a void in their lives. We learned this from non other than YouPorn.com staff Black . They first learn of the Sex Tape being "leaked" onto the web, at a Children's' party of some form, when Jay gets a text, saying that he loves the video etc., So the couple go on a frantic search. During the search, it is explained that Jay's job has something to do with iPads, and hence he used the iPad to record the sex acts. Then it is explained to us, that anything that's on the iPad is synced to the Cloud using an "awesome" app Frankensync. So it got out onto the web. They turned to their neighbors, Tess Kemper and Robby Corddry thinking they are the ones who sent the text initially. When they learned it wasn't, they just went around wanting ALL the iPads back to delete the video. Jay gave it to his Mom Waldman , from Annie's boss Hank Lowe , from Tess and Robby. It is then revealed that it is Tess' and Robby's kid Howard Holzer , was the one who actually sent the text. He blackmailed Jay to get $25,000. When he refused, he uploaded to YouPorn site etc., etc.,.So with all the shenanigans, I can't really fault the film. You are warned by means of the Censorship Irish Film Board , with the language and content. Bottomline, Very good. Great plot. Most enjoyable. Great to see Segals almost little friend. heeheh
Crack a smile, Just numb out and enjoy. (by SergeMiles)
First off, yes this movie isn't the most original, ground breaking piece of art to hit the big screen. However it is funny. Yes, unless you are a prude or lack the ability to enjoy an off the wall good time, you will revel in this movie.From the opening scene, this movie maintains it's not so clean nature and as a consequence I thought it was pretty damn cool. Point being, you don't know what's coming next and anything goes.Diaz is in terrific form. She's sweet, funny, edgy and rocks. I'm not biased because she's a good looking chick, I simply find her likable and <more>
humorous in this movie. Jason Segel and her have good chemistry through out. Segel has a gift, this gift is that he's just a funny dude.Rob Lowe is exceptionally funny and should do more and more comedies. Other supporting cast members hit the mark as well. Ellie Kemper is great as is Rob Corddry. Corddry I admit, does constantly play the role of the friend in a growing number of comedies, but that's because he's a humorous dude. Don't go into this movie if you're not ready to chill out and appreciate some bellow the belt humor. Don't go to this movie if you don't have your laughing face on and don't go into this movie if you're looking for the next, well I don't know, something profound. Me and my wife liked this allot and consequently laughed out loud allot. 8 out 10 on the go and see this movie for what it is scale. Funny, a bit dirty good dirty though , and number of butt shots. So come on, crack a smile.
Hilarious movie. The entire theater was laughing. (by fsuinnc-56-354756)
I saw this with several friends. All of us are between 40 and 50 and all of us either have school age kids or have been through the raising of children. Afterwards we all agreed this was the funniest movie we had seen in a long, long time. and we go to movies quite frequently. The concept was funny and it is pretty easy to imagine it happening with today's technology. There were a couple of scenes that were less realistic or believable than others but it's a movie and a comedy at that so go with the flow and enjoy a little slapstick physical comedy. The main characters are likable <more>
and make a believable "average" couple. There are just a couple of spots that lagged but over all it keeps a good pace and the laughs kept coming right to the end. It isn't for kids or people who don't like cussing but very funny adult themed movie.
Funny, hilarious even but pretty raunchy (by mkenyon1978)
I really enjoyed this, it was hilarious with a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. It starts off with Annie and Jay, a couple who are in a rut in their relationship, their lives pretty much revolve around the kids, they still love each other, find each other attractive, but have a hard time finding time for the more intimate moments of a marriage. One night they they have something to celebrate and instead of celebrating family style, Annie decides to send the kids to grandma's for the night so she and Jay can finally get it on. They have a little difficulty getting started things go wrong , <more>
but after a couple of shots they decide to film themselves doing all the positions in the book "the joy of sex". The next day, after receiving a text message, they find out that not only had Jay forgotten to delete the video, but it has also synced with all the iPads Jay had given away as gifts their son, best friends, mailman, her mother and her boss , so now they have to retrieve all the iPads as well as figure out who has been texting Jay.... This movie won't win any awards and it wasn't the funniest thing I've seen, but it did have lots of hilarious moments and I think that Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are both perfectly cast in their respective roles. I also really enjoyed Rob Corddry and Ellie Kemper as their best friends.
