‘Sex Tape’ Red Band Trailer: The Dangers of Cloud Technology

Published 1 year ago by

The last time director Jake Kasdan, Cameron Diaz, and Jason Segel worked together, we got the R-rated Bad Teacher, which was successful enough to beget both a television series (premiering Fall 2014) and a sequel. Now Kasdan, Diaz, and Segel have reunited to bring us Sex Tape, which seems to be operating under similarly raunchy, R-rated parameters.

Annie (Diaz) and Jay (Segel) are a married couple who used to be passionately in love, but have long since fallen into a marriage rut, thanks to kids and work and everything else. In an effort to reignite that honeymoon phase spark, Annie suggests they film themselves “becoming intimate.”

And boy do they ever! The only problem is, they film themselves using one of those newfangled Apple iPads, which automatically syncs to the iCloud and transfers their sex video to all the iPads they recently gave to family, friends, co-workers, the mailman, and so on. Naturally, high jinks ensue as Annie and Jay set out on a mission to destroy every last iPad with their sex video on it.

Check out the poster below:

The most promising part of the trailer is the obvious chemistry between Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. They’re funny together and they seem to be having a genuinely good time onscreen. In fact, for the most part, the trailer makes the movie look like a lot of fun.

There are, however, a few moments that fall flat – namely, the “attack dog” bit, which looks cliched and unfunny – but hopefully those moments are few and far between.

Fortunately, Sex Tape‘s extended cast is pretty great as far as these comedy ensembles go and includes Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Ellie Kemper (The Office), Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda 3), and Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation).

What say you, Screen Ranters? Did you like what you saw in the trailer? Drop us a line in the comments.

  1. snizz.

  2. i loved bad teacher (its one of my all time favorite comedies) and it worked because of the chemistry between jason and cameron. i cannot wait until this comes out. hopefully its a breakout hit and everyone sees it.

  3. This is the reason why I don’t trust cloud computing.
    I trust my good old hard drive.

  4. The dog scene did the job, I’m going to see this movie

    • hahahh same here… “Siri. How do i…” hilarious.

      BTW Jason Segel has lost a serious amount of weight in this movie.

    • Totally. I burst out laughing when that happened. Good sign for the film. The rest of the humour brought a smile to the face. Looks better than most films, so long as you go in with the right expectations.

  5. So I will say something nice.: Diaz seems to have a very yummy bum.
    Aside from that however, very basic comedy.
    Let’s Be Cops, so far, looks like the comedy to beat. This movie won’t even come close.

    • Agree with Let’s Be Cops. Movie looks hilarious. Oh also agree about Cameron’s bum.

  6. Bad teacher wasn’t a bad comedy, but it was nothing special either. So the ‘chemistry’ between Segel and Diaz didn’t appear to be anything special. I think both of these stars are kinda fading and they’re going back to a well that was ‘good enough’.

  7. so the title says trailer but theres no trailer. only the poster.

    • It’s at the top of the article, below the FB/Twitter share buttons.

  8. looks funny, but i don’t find Diaz sexy at all

    • You may be dead!

    • Cameron Diaz has never been sexy.

  9. I’ll pass. This doesn’t even look remotely funny. Sex jokes are boring.

  10. I wish I had rich friends who gave out iPads to everyone they know. 😉

  11. Cameron Diaz starring in anything=FAIL

  12. She can’t act and she’s not hot. I’ll pass.
