Meet the real Tag brothers - the men who inspired the film visit the set and tell the ongoing story of a game that's lasted nearly thirty years!
If you like what my wife calls "stupid" movies, you should like this comedy which is based on an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal in 2013. There are some really funny moments which should illicit some good laughs but overall it is just an okay comedy.
Great price from the stuff I got. Need to be more careful with packages some times great so far
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Funny but frustrating at times
Owned for 8 months when reviewed.
This movie is hilarious, but if you're like me, you can only take so much of the group getting kicked around with nothing uplifting them for so long and had begun resenting their awesome at tag friend before any catharsis.
Really Funny! I was not expecting the extend of humor in this movie but it actually had a really nice back story and plot. This movie made me actually laugh out loud and made me want to participate in a game like this! This movie is about a bunch of old buddies that started a game of Tag when they were young kids and have been playing it all the way into adulthood, For one month out of the year they all surprise each other and show up in their towns, workplaces, homes in ridiculous disguises and hilarious fashions to "get the other person" in tag.The plot is, in this group of friends, there is one that has never been tagged before and he has a big event coming up and a possibly detrimental one to his undefeated score in tag, hes getting married! The 4 friends get together and make plans to tag the one undefeated buddy as he will be a sitting duck at his wedding. This movie had humor, happiness, even sadness, but most of all, friendship. If you like comedies, you will love this one.
This is one of Ed Helms' best. The concept is very juvenile as you expect, however the execution is pretty advanced, mostly on Jeremy Renner's part. It keeps you laughing and falling more in love with each of these actors/actresses. Although I figured out the ending somewhere around the first meeting of Leslie Bibb, I still really enjoyed it. You will laugh and cry and enjoy your evening....so long as you already like the cast.
