Jay and Annie 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 marathon three-hour 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, duping Annie's boss - all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage.
Comedy - As the title suggests, this is a very raunchy comedy for adults only.
Fans of stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel will enjoy this major
showcase for their comic talents. Sex with nudity, non-stop sex
talk, drug use, and violence make the film strictly not for kids
though there are some prominent kid characters.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 24 S-words; 2 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Lots of loud sexual situations with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Hits and dog attacks with blood, played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and cocaine. ACTION: Chases with a dog. COMEDY: Non-stop raunchy humor, both verbal and physical.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average A movie of this sort should be racy and edgy; it should stoke the libido and tickle the funny bone. This one does neither and, as a result, feels like a cheat.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average The whole process is extremely tedious, but one of their stops—which amounts to an extended detour—is so random and unexpected that it breathes much-needed life into the film.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average But viewers seeking a fresh comedy, a seductive romp, or even just an escape from boredom for a couple hours will be left dismally unsatisfied by this stilted, nearly humorless, non-titillating slog.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 29 moviegoers:
TEENS: The one male rated it "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male rated it "poor." Three of the five females thought"Sex Tape" was an "above average" movie. Another one rated it just "average" and the last one felt it was "poor."
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are similar. About 20% loved "Sex Tape." Ten percent more thought it was an "above average" movie. Unfortunately, a very large 70%, or so, would only rate it "average," with MANY of these (especially females) rating it "poor," which is extremely low coming from moviegoers.
