- Dawson Casting: Segal and Diaz play the college age version of themselves with what looks like cgi smoothened faces. To an extent this counts even for their 'present day roles' - judging by the fact she fell pregnant in college and the age of her son Annie should be about thirty while Cameron Diaz is a full decade older.
- Star-Derailing Role:
- For Jason Segel, after diminishing results following reaching a career peak with The Muppets, Sex Tape finally pulled the rug out on Segel as a bankable star. While he has had roles in a few independent films, including a well-received serious turn as David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour, and created television series Dispatches From Elsewhere he has not starred in a Hollywood studio film since Sex Tape.
- This film and Annie (2014) ended up being some of Cameron Diaz's last roles before her retirement from acting; while she never officially said anything about them, the negative reviews and box office returns both received may have contributed to this decision.
