When I saw “Sex Tape” in theaters, I had a blast. I don’t man. I have read some terrible reviews for this film but I really enjoyed it. I mean Rob Lowe’s role in the film is just so amazing and worth checking out just for that. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are fun together. The plot is light but it is short and sweet. I love comedies that it is around 90 minutes. This is not ground breaking and may not even be remembered next year but it was fun and if you are looking for an hour and half of mindless stupidity, I would recommend it. I haven’t laughed as hard as I did in “Sex Tape” in a long time, so have drink, kick back and enjoy this flick!
Official Premise: 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 three-hour marathon 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 and duping Annie’s boss – all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity and, most importantly, their marriage.
There seems to be two versions of this film available, I happened to receive the Wal-Mart Exclusive with the alternate artwork. Sony is releasing this as a combo pack with Blu-ray + UltraViolet digital copy. The 1080p transfer and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 are good but nothing spectacular. The special features include some Bloopers, Deleted & Extended Scenes and Line-O-Rama. There is also “Capturing the Moment” which is a chat with director and cast. “Romance Reboot with Dr. Jenn Berman” is a chat with licensed Psychotherapist, VH1 television host, and author discussing the reality of film. Lastly “Meet Hank Rosenbaum” is a funny faux chat with fictional Entrepreneur/Philanthropist/Art Enthusiast talking about the film’s Disney-inspired paintings.
