The weekend is here, and you’re wondering what to do? Check out our review of the latest rom-com to hit the big screen:
Movie: Sex Tape, featuring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel
The plot: A couple, Jay and Annie, are still very much in love after 10 years but are battling a seriously faded sex life thanks to kids, jobs and life. When all else fails to jump start the relationship, they turn to Jay’s new iPad with incredible video capabilities while the kids are at grandma’s one night. With the help of tequila, they decide to try every position in The Joy of Sex. You can feel a little extra heat on camera in the scenes that follow until Jay realizes that he’s accidentally synced all his tech devices. The problem? He constantly upgrades his iPads, sharing old ones with friends, the mail man and even the CEO of a company that mommy blogger, Annie, is trying to land a deal with. They must get the devices back before anyone realizes.
TAGG’s take: I suppose you wouldn’t watch any porn for the plot, and the same goes for this film. The plot is ridiculous, and myself, along with friends during a girl’s night out certainly had a few cringe worthy moments over awkward sex moments, or just Jason Segel’s ass (now Cameron’s? Enviable!). Yet, we all admitted… we did laugh. And, out loud. It’s absurd, and yeah, an actual film critic would give this an F, but what does this average girl think?
Our rating: C+. Worth seeing, now when you have a spare few hours and are looking for some ridiculous laughs or wait until it’s available On Demand. No rush but it’s funny, and the average girl thinks it’s worthy. Just grab some movie popcorn, and sneak in some candy and drinks! PS: our favorite snack is the kid’s pack… best deal in the house; movie theatre popcorn, mini drink and usually a candy for around $6.
