Tag (2018)


Jeff Tomsic directs Ed Helms, Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner in this comedy loosely based on the true story of a group of friends who carried on a game of tag for decades.

Bit of a shame this, as a decent concept and cast are mishandled in a film that dwindles away to nothing. The problem is we start with two big, admittedly funny, but overkill sequences… leaving what could have been quite a sweet and sharp farce nowhere to go but even further into the realms of overblown. Everyone gets lost in the wideshot, loud mix… except for Isla Fisher as the wife who takes the game all too seriously and because of her violent competitiveness isn’t allowed to play. She kinda saves a one note experience.
