While "Sex Tape" tends to be uneven as many such, "guy-oriented" sex comedies are these days (think of Seth Rogen's "Neighbors"), it does, like the best of that lot, pull itself above the sophomoric humor -- before, during and after -- long enough to show both heart and true wit in the writing and acting.
Jason Segel -- who co-wrote -- is definitely one of the better actors of his generation, with just the right amount of goofiness and gravitas. And Cameron Dias has more than lived up to promise she showed way back when in "The Mask", with great acting roles in drama ("Gangs of New York") and thrillers ("Knight and Day") and, most of all comedies. HER ability to go from full-on dramatic to full-out goofy is always enjoyable (there are a few actresses, who shall remain unnamed, who CAN'T navigate comedic waters to save their lives). She always gives off the brainy but fun vibe, in her acting roles.
This one's a fun, no-brainer, with a big heart -- and one that can be enjoyed by couples, married or not
