It will be absolutely ridiculous to classify Tag as an unrealistic flick especially as you have been forewarned that it is based on true life events.

Genre: Comedy

With that nicely dusted, what do you think of a cute story of long lasting friendships, of bonds held strongly by a childish game called Tag? As fantastic as that may sound, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Click to read The Wall Street Journal post.

Verdict:

7 Stars

Can we head back to this review?

Tag tells the tale of 5 friends who come together one month (May) every year to play a very violent version of Tag. The film opens to Hoagie (Ed Helms) making several stops across states to drag his friends to Washington for Jerry’s wedding and a chance to finally tag the undefeated champion.

Scene from Tag

The message of this screenplay is precise and very cute in its interpretation:

You don’t stop playing because you get old, You get Old because you stop playing.

Herein lies a story that’ll remind you of how many friendships you’ve allowed slip through your fingers, while cracking your rips.

One very fascinating feature of Tag is how it successfully tells a rather fanciful story of friendship bond, palpable pain and then the most far fetched feature- humor.

Warning! DO NOT go into the cinemas thinking you will be seeing a strictly comic film.

If you are looking to see a movie where grown ass men find sucker punching as a kind of bonding activity, Tag is for you!Also, if you are looking to find something to laugh out loud about, this is your best bet.

Favorite Scene? The presumptuous gay guy scene, the wedding scene and the last scene.

Tag
Leslie Bibb (Susan) and Jeremy Renner (Jerry)

Anyways, it’s not all cakes and icing with Tag.  The movie makes a face flat fall with how it ends. I imagine Rob Mckittrick and Mark Steilen (Screenwriters), seated over a plate of Ewa Agoyin, calculating how best not to make the end predictable. How about we slide in a near death experience? Which was exactly how the disappointing end made its way to the world Box office.
