After Nicole (Dakota Johnson) is diagnosed with cancer, her friend Dane (Jason Segel) moves in to help her and her husband Matthew (Casey Affleck) with her appointments and treatments, taking care of their kids and keeping the house in order. And what is initially planned as a short multi-week stay quickly extends into many months.
The Friend is based on a true story, so that alone makes the emotional turmoil this family endures that much more devastating. While some scenes are heavy-handed, the core ensemble of Johnson, Affleck and especially Segel all deliver terrific work. But the Film around them is a mess. It jumps back and forth around timelines much too often, rarely stopping before jumping back into some part of the present. These flashbacks should be developing the characters better, but they seem to function only to piece together a vaguely coherent backstory. They share some facts with us, but keep others enigmatic (although one needless gut punch gets a lot of focus). I understand the struggle of not knowing what to cut, but feel like there was some pertinent information left out that could have taken The Friend from just being good to being truly great. Make sure you bring the tissues.
THE FRIEND screens during TIFF at the following times:
Friday September 6, 6:00pm @ Princess of Wales [World Premiere]
Saturday September 7, 2:30pm @ Princess of Wales
Let’s get raunchy, Willionaire$! Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Mr. Will want to get you in on the naughty SEX TAPE, to be enjoyed in the privacy of your homes.
Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in THE JOY OF SEX in one three-hour marathon session. It seems like a great idea until they discover that their most private video has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, roping in friends and duping Annie’s boss – all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity and, most importantly, their marriage.

If there was any doubt that once Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Actress Cameron Diaz was still bankable, let it be known that she was the Queen of the Box Office this weekend with Rom-Com,THE OTHER WOMAN, making a healthy $25 million in its debut! Next-up is the equally-intriguing SEX TAPE, starring her and Bad Teacher Co-Star Jason Segel, whom we also didn’t recognize in this new svelte incarnation of himself!
When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense—but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, they decide—why not?—to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world… but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they’ll never forget, they’ll find that their video will expose even more than they bargained for.
Watch the Trailer below!
