Opening today are movies for kids, about a kid, adults acting like kids and one that might scar any kids who see it – Yes, there’s something for everyone at theaters this weekend. Now out in wide release is Sex Tape (no pun intended), starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as Jay and Annie, a pair of tired parents who decide getting explicit on camera will jazz up their marriage. After the erotic video gets uploaded to the cloud, hijinks ensue as they attempt to reclaim and delete each copy sent to family, friends, and Annie’s employer. If you don’t want to type “Sex Tape” into Google at work, you can directly browse showtimes here.
This weekend will also see two sequels opening across North America. Featuring the voices of Dane Cook, Ed Harris, and Julie Bowen, Planes: Fire and Rescue, Disney’s follow-up to 2013’s Planes and spin-off of Pixar’s Cars franchise, continues the animated story of Dusty Crophopper, who leaves air racing to help combat wildfires.
