As a television company, Netflix has already established itself as one of the best and most important studios in the business. As a distributor of documentaries, they also have an impressive track record. But when it comes to feature films, Netflix still hasn’t quite put itself on the map. True, its Beasts of No Nation received good reviews last fall, and Pee-wee’s Big Holiday was a fairly entertaining trifle. But much of the rest of their feature film slate has been met with bad to oh-my-god-how-in-the-world-did-this-happen? reviews. Their Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel was delayed and then mostly ignored. Ricky Gervais’ Special Correspondents was nowhere near the heights of his TV work. And two movies in, Adam Sandler’s four-picture deal with Netflix seems like an experiment designed to test Netflix’s customers willingness to maintain their subscriptions.

The LEGO Movie proved audiences’ appetite for charming, mildly subversive animated movies about talking toys. Now Warner Bros. is testing that appetite with a whole line of LEGO movies. There already announced Ninjago film in 2016, a Lego Batman Movie in 2017, and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018. Per The Hollywood Reporter, that onslaught will also includes a fourth film, a LEGO spinoff titled The Billion Brick Race, which will be co-written and directed by Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets’ Jason Segel.

Most of the time, Jimmy Fallon confines the 'Tonight Show' games to just one or two participants, enough to keep things clean and easy to follow, with plenty of attention for his various guests. On last night's edition, however, the host decided to pump things up just a bit with an all-star take on 'Family Feud' that crowded the show's stage with a metric ton of Hollywood talent.

In 'Sex Tape,' Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz play a married couple who accidentally load a sex tape to their cloud, which results in the couple having to collect all of the iPads they gave out as gifts in order to save embarrassment. Anyway, this could never happen. But, hey, it's a movie, and movie sometimes have to stretch reality in order to be entertaining and interesting -- which 'Sex Tape' didn't accomplish either.

Did you hear the one about getting married and having a family? When you get married and have children, you no longer get to have sex. This basic knowledge has become such a tired movie cliche and yet entire films continue to be built around it, including 'Sex Tape,' the new film that reunites 'Bad Teacher' director Jake Kasdan with his stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel -- a combination that should make for easy entertainment, but instead lends itself to exasperated groans.

Fifteen Fun Minutes With The Fun Ellie Kemper, Star of 'Sex Tape'

Every so often, during a press day that seems endless for everyone involved, something that at least resembles "reality" can occur. It's an odd thing, really: Because on a day like this, most people involved are seeking something that doesn't feel manufactured, even though it's almost impossible to find. Anyway, that's my overly hyperbolic way of saying, "Talking to Ellie Kemper was a delight."

Jason Segel Sparks the Best Conversation About Sandwiches With David Letterman

This is what every talk-show appearance should really be like. Jason Segel hit 'The Late Show' last night to talk about some pretty basic bits -- how and why he lost weight for 'Sex Tape,' his theory on chip intake at Mexican restaurants, host David Letterman's wonderful pronunciation of "taco," and all that jazz -- before getting to the real meat of the appearance. The sandwich meat, if you will.

It's hard to keep things fresh in your relationship after 10 years of marriage and two kids -- which is why Cameron Diaz straps on a pair of rollerskates (and very little else) in the first clip from 'Sex Tape,' in an effort to try and seduce her husband while the kids are away for the night.
