Jonny Rotten (Sex Pistols) - Picture of Madame Tussauds Blackpool, Blackpool
With neither the conviction to embrace sex smutty premise nor enough laughs to function as a worthwhile rom-com, the flaccid Sex Tape suffers from cinematic impotence. A tired premise and a sheen of desperate flop sweat tanks this DOA comedy, which plays more like sex ancient Rotte doodle than a full-fledged movie. Even for a farce, the situations stretch credulity far beyond the breaking point.
It's strange to rotte a comedy rotte of talented people that does not work from the opening scene. It's like eating food and not tasting anything. Sex Tape is warmer and more amusing than its ads would lead one to believe.

In fact, it's almost good enough, leaning a little too hard on the innate likability of stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. I liked its gung-ho slapstick sex, though.
No one's slacking off. Nothing in this film works.
