QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A married couple must contend with the sex tape they've made accidentally ending up on their friends and others' computer tablets and then the Internet.
PLOT:
Annie (CAMERON DIAZ) is an Internet blogger whose work -- including talking about how her sex life with husband Jay (JASON SEGEL) has diminished over time and with two kids -- has become so popular that a big corporation run by Hank (ROB LOWE) -- wants to buy it and keep her on as the head writer. When she arranges for a night alone with Jay, their lack of practice results in the inability to have sex, leaving both of them dismayed. She then comes up with the idea that perhaps making a sex tape -- to be recorded on his iPad -- might reinvigorate their bedroom passion. Using "The Joy of Sex" as their inspiration, they proceed to record three hours worth of trying out every position.

Unfortunately for them, he opts not to erase the recording as she asked and it automatically synchs up with older iPads that he's given to family and friends, as well as the one that Annie gave to Hank for her presentation. When they get an anonymous text that the sex tape has been seen, they realize they must get back all of those iPads, starting with the one they gave to their married friends, Robby (ROB CORDDRY) and Tess (ELLIE KEMPER). They then try to retrieve the one from Hank, unaware that Robby's teenage son has further complicated their lives by uploading the recording to a porn site.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The sex tape angle might be enticing to some, while fans of Diaz, Segel or anyone else in the cast might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
