A group of College students bumble their way into fame when their video of sex with a famous actress winds up online. Pretty soon they find themselves the producers of a series of porn tapes starring every has-been in Hollywood. Soon the money is pouring in, (because in this movie’s world pageviews actually translate to wealth) until their lives are threatened by a maniacal manager who tries to bilk them out of their hard-earned cash.
“He said Hard”…
This movie is either the worst sex comedy ever made, or the greatest work of genre parody ever created. It is wrong-headed, tasteless, and completly disgusting. And yet, it is all of these same traits that endear me to it so much. Celebrity Sex Tape is the sweetly retarded man-child of comedy… if that man-child suffered from chronic masturbation.

If you’re going to do a film about celebrity exploitation it would probably help if your celebrity characters actually looked like famous people. The “celebrities” in this movie look more like washed up porn stars… which makes sense from a budgetary perspective, considering how much nudity the film contains.
What is with the nasty squashing sounds they use during the sex scenes? The Foley artist seems to think that the sound of slowly stomping on an orange was the right artistic decision.
It took about 5 seconds to find this video on youtube… you’re welcome
The movie is at its best when going out of its way to be bogus. The sex-related hijinks are so outrageously terrible that it easily outdoes most teen-sex comedies out there. The film of course is a straight to DVD unrated release, so they don’t have to conform to MPAA ratings regulations. Sadly, when it is trying to be funny it fails miserably. I found myself laughing madly at the film’s failures however, so I don’t quite know what to say…
This movie seems to be what happens when creepy shut-ins are allowed to make a movie.
We can spot our own kind…
You might find yourself laughing at it more than with it, but then again, isn’t the point of a comedy to make you laugh? As far as I’m concerned, that is all that matters.
