Worst: Animal cruelty
There's a way to play these animal jokes, and it's a fine line. "There's Something About Mary" wisely went as absurd as possible, but "Sex Tape" errs on the side of mean, and not just towards the animal. I found it genuinely disturbing that Segel spends half the movie with giant bloody fang marks on his face, and when he beats the shit out of the German Shepherd, it seems too violent. Sure, the dog pops up again, but it's just too much.
