Are Jason Segel’s Lips Enough Reason To See “Sex Tape?”
DETROIT (WWJ) – For the first time since 2011’s “Bad Teacher,” Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are back together on the big screen. This time, they’re co-starring in the new movie, “Sex Tape.”
In “Sex Tape,” husband and wife, Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz), have been happily married for 10 years, but with two busy schedules and two young kids, they rarely find time for one another anymore. This is completely different from when they were dating and they would have sex on any given day and at any given time: in the library, outdoors, in their college dorm room — nothing unusual there, other than that the door was left wide open and anybody walking by could see what they were doing! Basically, their entire relationship revolved around sex.
So, 10 years into their marriage when the mundane sets in, they’re looking for a way to spice things up. So what do they do? They decide to star in their very own porn video.
“They think about things,” Diaz said describing their characters. “A lot of things that they consider in their life they consider very well, you know very thoughtfully, and they’ve done a really great job, but this particular situation they do not think out very well and they’re not very smart about.”
Although Diaz, who stars as Annie, is talking about Annie and Jay’s decision to make that video, she could have been talking about the decision to even make the movie! That’s because this movie is that BAD! And, it’s vulgar. And, it’s not funny. In fact, I think I laughed no more than three times during the entire film. And for a movie that’s billed as a comedy, that’s pretty darn bad.
My recommendation – Cameron Diaz/Jason Segel fan or not – is that you pass on “Sex Tape” and spend your hard-earned cash on something much more worth it. For example,
1. You could take $1 and spend it on tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot, which is worth an estimated $50 million.
2. Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is approximately $60 million. A ticket will cost you $2.
3. And, for just $8, you can download a month’s worth of movies on NetFlix.
But, in all honesty, there was ONE thing I did like about Sex Tape: Jason Segel’s lips! He’s got some of the best-looking lips in the business! But, are they worth paying to see this time around? Look at it this way: I’ll save you some money by posting a close-up pic of him here.
Enjoy and I’ll see you at the movies!
