Tag | 2018 | R | - 6.4.10

Based on a feature story published in The Wall Street Journal: A group of super-competitive men (Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Hannibal Buress, Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner) start playing a game of elaborate tag with each other that lasts 23 consecutive years. Also with Isla Fisher, Rashida Jones, Annabelle Wallis and Leslie Bibb. Directed by Jeff Tomsic. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - In the back seat of a car we see a woman wearing a bra (we see cleavage and bare abdomen) as she thrusts on a clothed, seated man for a few seconds and we hear them both panting. A man on a video screen pretends he will ejaculate onto a teddy bear after masturbating; he puts lotion on his hands and lowers his hand below the frame and a man watching the video says, "It's fake," (we learn that it was a joke).
 During closing credits a man in a shower runs out into the background and we briefly see full frontal nudity (details are neither completely nor clearly visible since it's from a distance and brief). In close-up a man pulls down another man's trousers and we see that he is wearing thong underwear (we see bare buttocks). A teenage girl wears thigh-high leather boots with a miniskirt that reveals some upper thigh. A woman wears a sleeveless V-neck dress cut all the way to the waist to reveal cleavage in two scenes. In several scenes, two women wear V-neck dresses that reveal cleavage and legs to the mid-thigh. A few scenes show women wearing dresses with cut-outs that reveal a little skin around the waist.
 A man and a woman kiss passionately for several seconds. A man and a woman kiss briefly. A man and a woman hug. A young girl kisses a different young boy in two scenes. In a silent scene a teen girl kisses a boy briefly and we see her hand moving as if in masturbation, but his heavy shirt hides her hand and we don't see anything else.
 A male gym attendant thinks that three men are trying to buy sex from him but they only want information about the club owner. A woman flirts with a younger man, saying that she will beat him and his friends with a belt until her son tells her to stop. A man enters a woman's restroom to speak to a woman (no one else is there) and they leave together. A man sends another man a note that says "Eat my..." above three circles; the second man tries to guess what parts he refers to.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Three men in a golf cart chase another man in a golf cart as he tosses buckets of golf balls at them until they crash and are thrown out of their cart (no one is injured). Three men chase a man through the woods and find several other men dressed like him; one of the pursuers is caught in a tree-net trap, another is hit in the stomach by a log swinging on a cable, and another is tied to a tree and drugged (please see the Substance Use category for more details); a man terrifies a pursuer by suddenly turning around and shouting "Muerto" (dead in Spanish) causing the man to collapse and one of the pursuers ends up with a scrape around his left eye and on his cheek. A man disguised as an elderly woman with a walker attacks a gym owner who punches him, slides him into a wall, knocks him down, and pins him to the floor with the walker (no injuries are seen). A man at a wedding charges at another man and accidentally tackles the minister before falling unconscious. Men chase another man through apartments in a building and outside to a staircase where the first man knocks a woman down and she screams; the chase continues through alleys and a house, where the chased man jumps out a second story window, shattering glass across a roof and he lands on his back on the ground (he gets up unharmed).
 Three men slap each other in a game of tag and one man grabs his crotch, shouting, "Ouch!" Two men slap each other several times. A woman has bloody tissue in her nostrils as she drives backwards over trash bins (she is unharmed). A man tosses a woman a beer can but it hits her breast and she shouts and throws the can against the wall (it does not open).
 Three men charge at a speaker, who tosses a thermos of coffee on one man, punches another man and sends him sliding along the floor, throws donuts like ninja stars into another man's face knocking him down, shoots fire extinguisher spray into a man's face and then knocks him down by hitting him in the stomach with the extinguisher, and runs up stacks of straight back chairs and breaks a small stained-glass window that shatters and sees the grass covered in mouse traps; he leans over and jumps from the chair stack he is standing on as it falls, he locks himself in a kitchen as his fiancée bends over, hyperventilating, saying that she is miscarrying (we see no blood and learn later that she is not pregnant) and the man comes out of the kitchen and shouts at the first three men and then leaves with the woman. A man at a restaurant charges toward another man, who wraps him up in a tablecloth and throws him aside, another man charges and is sent sliding into a wall, and another man falls onto some glasses breaking them over the floor (no injuries are shown). A small group of men and women threaten to waterboard a man; they tie him to an athletic bench and cover his face with a towel, a man lifts a large jug of water and then relents, a woman screams that she wants to do it, but the people hold her back and they leave. A man falls against a car and hits the pavement (he is unharmed).
 A man says that he wants to clean urine as a janitor; he enters an office, slams his equipment around, and an executive picks up a chair, throws it at the glass walls and it bounces back, nearly hitting him. A teen boy throws a projector at the lens, which goes black with a bang. A man picks up a heavy plastic ball bat in his basement and swings it to wreck a table and lamps and he then overturns a pool table. Several men and two women run through a hospital lobby and jump over people and chairs as a hospital patient walks out with an IV bag on a moving stand and watches, bends over in pain briefly then walks after them.
 A man tells another man, "I'll crush your windpipe." A man tells another man that his inner child is dead, decapitated and spewing blood. We hear that a man has a tumor on his liver. A woman says that her husband died.
 We see two patients in a hospital covered with blankets on gurneys pushed through corridors with IV lines attached to their arms, and then we see a hospital room with a man in bed and a blood pressure monitor on his finger as he tells friends that he has a tumor and may not live a year.
 A man says he once defecated into his infant niece's crib.

Men and women drink cans of beer in a basement, men and women drink bottles of beer, a man drinks a bottle of beer with five more bottles in a six pack in front of him, a man pours six shots of tequila in a closed bar where we can see two rows of liquor bottles in the background (no one drinks), men and women drink short glasses of whiskey and glasses of pink wines and champagne in a few lounge and reception scenes, a man and a woman drink wine on a balcony, and we hear that a man is a member of the AA.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
