Married couple Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) make a very intimate video to pep up their flagging sex lives in this brazenly smutty comedy, Sex Tape. Unfortunately, blundering Jay accidentally sends the recording to their friends’ computers. The duo’s frantic efforts to retrieve the video before it scuppers a lucrative deal for mommy blogger Annie triggers the occasional big guffaw – not least when Jay is being chased around Rob Lowe’s mansion by a slobbering Alsatian (don’t ask) – but most of the jokes are really limp. When it comes to the sex tape itself the filmmakers are relatively coy. It’s the shameless product placement for Apple that is truly in your face.
