Where can I get me an iPad?

This feels like an ’80s comedy with technology jammed into it, similar to that Jack Ryan sequel earlier this year that was all about Russians. It’s also very possibly the world’s most expensive iPad commercial, as every character onscreen says the word at least thrice and talks about what amazing products they are. (So amazing they’ll ruin your fucking life!) Skinny Jason Segel (sad face) and Cameron Diaz at her most appealing (confused face) are a longtime couple who have lost their mojo. They make a sex tape, it goes up to the cloud, and they bumble around like Weekend at Bernie’s trying to track down all the copies (another suggestion that this script is a bit dusty). Segel and Diaz have a great rapport, and though nothing innovative or rip-roaring happens in the extended comic setpieces, the whole enterprise is enjoyable enough, pure Not As Bad As It Looks.
