Tag 2018 7+ out of 10
The true story that this movie is based on features 10 friends from high school that have been playing the same game of tag for over 30 plus year. I recall seeing a feature on the actual story years ago on ESPN and thought it was amazing. Every year during a certain month the group which is now dispersed across the country plays an elaborate game of tag as a way of keeping contected. They pull out all the stops including disguises like a guy that dressed up as the mascot from a sports team to tag one of the friends at a baseball game.
It was just a matter of time until Hollywood turned this story into a movie. They assembled a great cast that includes Jake Johnson, Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner and Hannibal Buress and created a fun Hollywoodized over the top version of the story. The movie was an enjoyable adventure and had some funny sequences. The group teams up to try and tag the one untaggable member of the team at his wedding weekend. It was almost a little too over the top and I guess I blame that on the fact that I know it was based and an amazing true story.
