Movie Info & Cast
Friends that play together, stay together… even if the game in question is tag. For one month every year, five friends organize an elaborate, all-out, no-holds-barred version of that age-old playground game. They’ll travel across the country. They’ll risk their necks. They’ll sacrifice their dignity – all to win. But when the one undefeated player in the group decides to get hitched, the others determine that this time around it’s his turn to be “it”. Starring Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Hannibal Buress, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, and Isla Fisher, Tag is based on a true story. No, seriously – the film is inspired by a real group of friends who have really been playing a game of tag for over 30 years. Now that’s the kind of “ripped from the headlines” you don’t see every day.

I laughed from start to finish! This was such a fun movie!
This was a great comedy for adults and older teens due to the language and and content (smoking from bong). We were constantly laughing along with others in the theatre.
Tag ends up being good fun, with an unexpectedly sweet spirit that stays with you. It’s really about the persistence of friendship, a vision of adult life as the playground we would love it to be.
Tag is neither bad nor good, but rather, despite its out-there story, almost numbingly ordinary: an easy, breezy action-com that’s sometimes amusing but rarely funny, competent rather than inspired.
Tag is all strained sentimentality and obvious observations about men’s inability to leave childish things behind.
