The premise of Antoine Desrosières’ À Genoux Les Gars (English title: Sex Tape) sounds like a mashup of every risqué Hollywood teen comedy ever made: Boorish high-school boys demand oral sex from their girlfriends. After their demands are grudgingly met, a scheme involving a sex tape (in truth, a cellphone video; physical tapes are now as extinct as dodo birds) ups the ante and inspires them to blackmail the primary ingénue into performing nonstop fellatio. The boys’ virulent sexism is foiled when the girls get their comeuppance and find a clever ruse for blackmailing the blackmailers.
