Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Sex Tape -- a raunchy but funny comedy about a couple trying to rekindle the passion in their marriage -- is definitely too mature for young teens and tweens. First off, there's the subject matter: sex, and the creation of a sex tape, and the problems and hilarity that ensue from that decision. There's also the exploration of a marriage's failings, which may go over the head of younger viewers. Given the plot, there's plenty of nudity (though no genitals are shown) and salty language (including "f--k" and "c--t"). Consumerism is rampant: Just about everyone has an iPhone or a Mac laptop or some other Apple product. Drugs and alcohol are used, and there's some violence played for laughs (a man hits a vicious dog, shoves it up against a wall, and falls off a balcony with it).
Lots of scenes featuring a couple in various sexual positions. No sensitive body parts are shown, though the pair's backsides are visible, and there's plenty of skin. The couple makes their own porn film, and their efforts to do so are a big part of the plot. Much of it is played for laughs. A different couple steams up a car having sex, though there's nothing to see except a pair of feet. Photos of topless women are briefly seen when a porn website is shown on a computer screen.
A man meets his match in a vicious dog that attacks him. He hits the dog, shoves it up against a wall, and falls off a balcony with it. One of the characters rams his SUV into a garage door in an attempt to break in. A young boy tries to blackmail an adult, and they have an argument in which both of them curse each other out. Two people attack a bank of computers with baseball bats.
Frequent use of everything from "damn" and "bitch" to "d--k," "a--hole," "f--k," and "c--t."
Amid all the over-the-top shenanigans is the message that marriage is teamwork, and couples need to be on the same team for a family to be happy. Also, sometimes catastrophes happen, but they lead you to a better place.
Just about everyone has an iPhone or a Mac laptop or some other Apple product. iPads are a prominent part of the plot. One character even comments on how resilient the casing is and how it protects the device from breakage.
