In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil schemes, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

BWW Reviews: Diaz, Segel are Funny & Sexy in Overly-Sanitized SEX TAPE
by Matt Tamanini - Jul 18, 2014

Let's be clear, no movie about two parents making a sex tape to get out of their marital rut can ever be described as family-friendly (especially this one), but SEX TAPE, from director Jake Kasdan, feels like a sanitized attempt to recreate the over-the-top raunchy humor of THE HANGOVER, BRIDESMAIDS, and HORRIBLE BOSSES. Despite its slightly restrained feel, the movie, mainly on the likeability of stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, manages to be entertaining and diverting, despite not being all that memorable. It feels like Kasdan is trying to delicately straddle the line between gross-out comedy and rom-com. Unfortunately, that indecision robs the film of its teeth… unless you like that sort of thing.
