5 Hilarious Co-Stars Who Stole Sex Tape From Cameron Diaz And Jason Segel
Despite starring two affable comedy stars and boasting a bawdy premise that seemed ripe for laughs, Sex Tape failed to impress at the box office this weekend, coming in 4th, behind the Cars spin-off sequel Planes: Fire and Rescue, The Purge: Anarchy and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But if you opted out of exposing yourself to Sex Tape this weekend, you also missed out on some really stellar supporting performances.
Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel front Sex Tape as Annie and Jay, a married couple that has hit a sex rut. So to get their groove back, they decide to record a sex tape using Jay's new iPad. But whoops - a new app automatically uploads the vid to all the synced iPads Jay has doled out to friends, family and acquaintances, throwing the couple in a mad dash quest to delete the files before their private lives go very public.
I've already opened up about how I felt Sex Tape got marriage right, now I'd like to shine a spotlight on some of the supporting cast that added some serious laughs to this sweet and raunchy comedy.
Rob LoweLet's just say it: Rob Lowe is the best, most insane part of Sex Tape. When his casual executive Hank is introduced, it's easy to think Lowe could go on cruise control, and just give us Parks and Rec's Chris Traeger 2.0. Instead, Lowe gives us a character whose loves are so bizarre and seemingly conflicting that it's dizzying. An affluent, white family man who holds a deep passion for cocaine, Disney movies, and old school hip hop, Hank is a character that shouldn't make sense. And yet he does because Lowe commits entirely, playing it straight no matter what madness Hank is up to.
Best Moment: It's a tie. It's either when he introduces Annie to his commissioned portrait of a still from The Lion King where his own face has been superimposed over Rafiki (the first of many bad Disney-inspired art we'll see in his home). Or, it's when he expresses his love for N.W.A. by proudly flashing Annie his hip tattoo, a portrait of Eazy-E, who Hank tells us he thinks of Every. Single. Day.
