Movie Info

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they've been playing since the first grade--risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry "You're It!" This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they're coming... and he's ready. Based on a true story, "Tag" shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

    It has some very funny moments. Nowhere near as funny as Game Night, but still good.

    A fun goofball comedy, Tag delivers a lot of laughs. The film follows a group of friends who have been playing a game of tag for over 20-years as they get together for one last round before one of their players retires with an undefeated record. Starring Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Jeremy Renner, the film has a strong cast that has good chemistry together and works well with this type of broad comedy. Yet, as outlandish as the jokes gets, the film has a surprising amount of heart. Entertaining and lighthearted, Tag is a hilarious film with a positive and touching message about friendship.

    Simply put, this is the funniest movie I've seen all year, and one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while. It's a comedy shot like an action film, and it totally works for this absurd premise. I didn't really want much from this movie going in, I just wanted some absurd antics of grown men playing tag, and I got that but I'm glad I got a little more. The plot didn't go exactly the way I was expecting, and there actually is a nice message about maintaining your friendships into adulthood. At the end of the day though, the movie's just really really funny. The sheer sense of anarchy and extreme energy is so much fun. I also have to give a shout out to a stand-out performance from Isla Fisher who is hilariously psychotic. Just a really fun movie.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.
