SEX TAPE ★ Di­rected by Jake Kas­dan. Star­ring Cameron Diaz, Ja­son Segel, Rob Corddry, El­lie Kem­per, Rob Lowe

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Yes, the pic­ture con­cerns a cou­ple (Diaz and Segel) whose per­sonal sex tape gets set loose on the dig­i­tal cloud. We end up with the very quin­tes­sence of a film that has no nat­u­ral au­di­ence. It’s too sex­u­ally ex­plicit to play as a cosy date movie. It’s not ex­plicit enough to work as an erotic piece. Techno­phobes will not iden­tify with the end­less ref­er­ences to file-shar­ing pro­to­cols. The tech­ni­cally lit­er­ate will find the he­roes’ baf­fle­ment more ir­ri­tat­ing than amus­ing. Hope­less. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 94 min
