Did you care for Sony’s “Bad Teacher”? Would you want to see a sequel? The movie was just okay, right? But before you forget, that R-rated comedy grossed $216 million worldwide. You might not think those are spectacular numbers, but it is higher than “Knocked-Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two mid/late aughts pictures that were heralded for making the R-rated comedy bankable again.

Sex Tape

Did you care for Sony’s “Bad Teacher”? Would you want to see a sequel? The movie was just okay, right? But before you forget, that R-rated comedy grossed $216 million worldwide. You might not think those are spectacular numbers, but it is higher than “Knocked-Up” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” two mid/late aughts pictures that were heralded for making the R-rated comedy bankable again.

So there’s no sequel (not yet anyhow, but it is in development), but for Sony, they’re getting the next best thing. Jake Kasdan, who directed “Bad Teacher,” is back with its two stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel for "Sex Tape." Written by Kate Angelo, Kasdan and Segel, their latest collaboration is one that everyone will love...at least SEO-wise. Co-starring Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe, the premise is likely self-evident: A married couple wake up to discover that the sex tape they made the evening before has gone missing, leading to a frantic search for its whereabouts (Jack Black is apparently in it too, presumably as a cameo).

Recipe for laughter? Again, “Bad Teacher” wasn’t exactly one for the ages, but it was at least mildly diverting and Diaz was pretty fun in it. “Sex Tape” arrives in theaters on July 18th . A new U.K trailer and photos below.
