Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A group of ex-classmates meet up and organize a game of tag that finds them traveling across the country.

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”

This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming… and he’s ready.

Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing. “Tag” is directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”), Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”), Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker, “The Town”).”

Negative—This could have been a good comedy for all to watch over and over again—but of course—they went down the road of constant filth. The extent of male homosexual jokes was disgusting. We thought we could rent it and just fast forward through any bad parts—we had to do so for about ¼ of the entire movie. What a waste of everyone’s time—the stars and the viewers—this could have been a good clean movie—but it is filth.

Secular Movie Critics
…a ridiculously raunchy and very, very sweet comedy about staying connected to the most important people in your life…
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
…I kind of hate the movie’s mixture of bro comedy, sadistic practical jokes (don’t call it slapstick) and last-ditch pull for the heartstrings. … [1½]
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
…“Tag” isn’t interesting at all, but its failure is. …The movie seems like it should be funny, but it’s not, so why? …
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
…it’s definitely funny in spots, in a we’re-making-this-up-as-we-go-along sort of way. …
Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
…suffers from the gimmickiness and genericism… despite its out-there story, almost numbingly ordinary: an easy, breezy action-com that’s sometimes amusing but rarely funny, competent rather than inspired. …
Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter
…a lazy, vulgar celebration of White Male American Dumbness—one that only put an African American in the cast to camouflage just how much of a celebration of White Male American Dumbness it is. …
Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
…a hit-and-miss affair… The biggest problem is the whiplash-inducing tonal shifts. …swings from violent slapstick to tender moments in slapdash fashion. …
Bill Goodykoontz, The Arizona Republic
…“Tag” is all strained sentimentality and obvious observations about men’s inability to leave childish things behind. …
