Tag is a 2018 comedy starring Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, Isla Fisher, Leslie Bibb, Hannibal Buress, Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner. It is directed by Jeff Tomsic (most known for producing I’m Having A Difficult Time Killing My Parents and This Is Not Happening). A synopsis for this film via IMDb reads: “A small group of former classmates organize an elaborate, annual game of tag that requires some to travel all over the country”.
First of all, this is not a comedy for everyone. You’ll definitely enjoy it more if you’re a fan of Ed Helms and Hannibal Buress. I absolutely love these guys and for me, they made this film funny as hell, especially with their funny lines. There is a quote in the film that I really like and it goes like this: We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. I felt like the whole action of the movie is based on this quote. I really liked the idea of some grown-ass men playing tag, in a time we’re all obsessed with technology and forget to pay attention to our friends.
I was pleasantly surprised how funny this film was! I mean, I expected it to be funny after seeing the trailer, but not this funny! I haven’t laughed so hard in a while and I believe that it had the right ingredients of a great comedy – it is rude, crude and funny! This film is all about excellent acting, great direction and wonderful editing. The plot is not that strong but again it’s a comedy so you shouldn’t expect it to be rocket science. I honestly can say that I was never bored while watching Tag.
I liked the chemistry between the characters played by Isla Fisher and Ed Helms, although they’re not very believable as a couple. As for Jeremy Renner, I’m more used to seeing him in action films, but he was the right choice for this film, him playing the character who has never been tagged. Will he remain the undefeated champion of this game? You’ll find out the answer by watching this film.
I hope I gave you enough reasons to go and watch Tag at the cinema. It is out now ! If you want to have a sneak-peak here’s the official trailer:
