What Sex Tape Gets Right About Marriage
Right now the Cameron Diaz/Jason Segel sex-comedy Sex Tape has an embarrassingly low 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. You know the premise, a couple try to spice up their sex life so they make a sex tape, but they accidentally send the footage to all of their friends. Cinema Blend, while not necessarily defending the movie, explains how the filmmakers made a movie that was rather relatable for the average married couple. [via Cinema Blend]
Why Can’t Cameron Diaz Make a Good Movie?
If you look at Cameron Diaz’s last dozen films – Sex Tape, The Other Woman, The Counselor, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Bad Teacher, The Green Hornet, Knight & Day, Shrek Forever After, The Box, My Sister’s Keeper, What Happens In Vegas, and The Holiday – you’ll notice that none of the films have over a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This is an odd phenomenon…Bad Teacher was actually pretty hilarious. [via Vulture]
