Ever since they were kids, Hoagie (Ed Helms) and his friends loved playing tag. In fact, they loved it so much that, thirty years later, they were still playing it. Yes, that’s right, despite now having moved on with their lives and each living in completely different cities, they all manage to follow through and play the game for the entire month of May every year. Except throughout their many games, one of their friends, Jerry (Jeremy Renner), has never been tagged. But in 2018, that changes. Also joining in on the fun is an all-star cast that includes Jon Hamm, Jake Johnston, Isla Fisher, Hannibal Buress, Annabelle Wallis and Leslie Bib.
It’s pretty much a given with a cast of this magnitude, but everyone involved absolutely kills it. Jeremy Renner is a standout as the man who’s never been tagged, and the fact that he filmed this entire movie with two broken arms is even more impressive (you can’t even notice the fact that both arms are, at times, CGI). Also fantastic is Isla Fisher, whose insane antics and violent dedication to the game brings about a considerable number of laughs. But, strangely enough, the direction by Jeff Tomsic is quite solid. Many of the gags derive from a creative visual standpoint, a hilarious moment in a forest working as a prime example.
